Books: History of the Calabash Pipe, Second Edition

Product Number: 001-119-0017

Make no mistake, this is a thorough account of just about every imaginable aspect of the history and development of this utterly unique category of smoking instrument, touching on everything from the Calabash's popularity amongst fighters of the Anglo-Boer conflict to the finest modern collections - and all with a wealth of accompanying photographs.
