Dunhill 1928 Catalogue
About Smoke ... an Encyclopaedia of Smoking by Alfred Dunhill, Ltd. This is the much anticipated 90th anniversary facsimilie reprint edition of the original 1928 fifth edition retail pipe catalogue. Arguably Dunhill’s finest retail catalog—their largest, its 200-plus pages are packed with stories and images of pipes, tobaccos, lighters, cigars, cigarettes, smoker’s requisites, and with prices. A period classic from the zenith of the smoking lifestyle. Included is a never-before-seen article written by Alfred himself on how he built the business. This printing includes an introduction by longtime collector and Dunhill-pipe expert Richard Esserman. 

Even if you're are not an anglophile as pipes or tobaccos go, the charm of this old catalogue is something special, and quite frankly, the largest pipeman's retail product reference compendium ever assembled.
