Inhaltsangabe: Rare Smoke is the first book devoted to the total spectrum of collecting 20th century briars, or "estate pipes," as they are popularly called. From its first whiff of a start in the early years of the 20th century to billowing clouds of enthusiasm created by today's devotees, Rare Smoke brings exciting new discoveries and never before revealed facts to this smoke-filled hobby.
Based upon more than two decades of detailed research through numerous pipe company archives, personal correspondence, exclusive interviews with members of famous pipemaking families, and drawing upon his own extensive knowledge and industry contacts (not to mention his collection of over 2,000 rare and unique briars), the author has given today's pipe collector a thorough and factual book that focuses not only on some of the most prominent 20th century pipe brands, but also some of the most obscure.
With over 100 color and black and white photos and written in the author's well-known entertaining and conversational style, Rare Smoke clears away years of misinformation and speculation, and opens up a new, fact-filled frontier for the pipe collector to experience and enjoy. Printed in a limited edition of only 2,500 copies, Rare Smoke is destined to become as collectable as many of the pipes depicted within its pages.
About the Author: Richard Carleton Hacker is one of the world's foremost authorities on the subjects of pipe smoking and pipe collecting. In addition to Rare Smoke, he is the author of The Ultimate Pipe Book (U.S., British, and German editions), the internationally acclaimed "bible" for pipe aficionados. The author is a member of France's honorary pipe society, the Confrérie des Maîtres-Pipiers de Saint-Claude, and is one of thirty original members worldwide to be elected to the prestigious Académie Internationale de la Pipe. In 1994 he was knighted by the International Tobacco Collegium as Germany's Pipe Knight of the Year.
