9780370003924: The Gentle Art of Smoking

From dust jacket notes: "...Here is told the story of smoking as it has existed from earliest times in Europe, Asia an dAfrica. Opinions of it varied from the belief of the American Indians in the magical properties of smoke, to the condemnation of James I, to whom the practice 'resembled the horrible Stigian smoke of the pit that is bottomless'. Then follow all the fashions of smoking through the centuries - pipes, snuff, cigars - and so to cigarettes which began to appear after the Crimean War...."
