Product Number: 001-119-0059

Critically acclaimed author, blogger, pipe smoker, and collector, Mark Irwin is the voice behind such books as The Peterson Pipe: The Story of Kapp & Peterson and The Pipes of Basil Rathbone's Sherlock Holmes. Originally published a decade ago, Pipe Smoking in Middle Earth: The Fellowship of the Smoke Rings has been updated for a third edition. The book details the pipes and tobacco of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth and Peter Jackson's corresponding film adaptations. With expert analysis and accompanying illustrations, Mark takes readers on a journey through Tolkien's seminal works, including an index chronicling all pipe-smoking accounts, a tutorial on smoke rings, and much more.
