    1938 Dunhill Catalogue

    Recently stumbled across a 1938 edition of About Smoke, available for free viewing online or pdf download, made available in Feb. 2016 by the University of Glasgow Library who amusingly list the date as 1900 --- I think it's from 1938 but I'm not really sure, my opinion is mostly based on LC depiction comparison, as the example in this catalog looks the same as the one that Loring depicts as being from the '38 catalog:
    http://loringpage.com/PipeArticles/T...pical%20LC.htm
    (compare to page 36 in the Glasgow edition)

    Sadly, there are multiple cut outs in the Glasgow edition, which they slipped white paper behind.

    Here it is:

    Most interestingly it lists Old Colonial tobacco, which I have never seen --- Loring says that it was intro'd in 1936 and not offered after WW2.

    The "snug" mouthpiece is also interesting, and again, I've never seen one --- it sorta reminds me of the bit design on Morgan's briar cigars.

    This answers some questions for me. One is it has a picture of a shape 60 Shell which I have been looking for. Secondly, it shows sandblasted Prince's. I have one on commission with Chris Asteriou, and he said that Dunhill had made some beautiful sandblasted Prince's but I had never seen any pictures of them before. Great Find!

    Of note also, in the section Bruyere preceding the smooth pipes, is Dunhill's explanation of "Dead Root".

    Thanks, Troy! I like their use of the term "Stand up" pipe.
