Pipestuff : Pipes and Tobaccos Magazine


pipestuff-sherlockSherlock Holmes as a Pipe Smoker
While there have been several general references and articles about fictional character Sherlock Holmes’ smoking habits, Sherlock Holmes as a Pipe Smoker by Thomas Gwinner is the first monograph to give a complete analysis of all pipe smoking references concerning Sherlock Holmes in the 56 short stories, four novels and original illustrations that make up the canon material.

Tirelessly researched and double-checked using relevant Internet search engines, Sherlock Holmes as a Pipe Smoker divides the analysis into four parts—pipes, tobaccos, place and daily time of smoking—and includes an appendix to ease readers’ searches for specific references.

Sherlock Holmes as a Pipe Smoker is available at www.amazon.com.
