A major compilation of classic Dunhill catalogs from 1910 to 1962 in four volumes plus the patent papers for twenty nine pipe related Dunhill English patents granted between 1904 and 1940. The catalogs include the 80 page 1917 ‘About Smoke’,  the 64 page 1923 'About Smoke', the 190 page 1928 'About Smoke', the 150 page 1938 'About Smoke' and such gems as the 34 page 1923 Christmas catalog in the form of a pipe essay "by a Dunhillite"; a 1928 Le Fin Fumeur produced for the French market; the first 1910 'About Smoke' catalog, a circa 1930 shape catalog showing all shapes then available, the 1952 Xmas catalog showing the first modern ‘ODA’s and the 1957 50th Anno catalog, together with 25 other complete catalogs.  Each volume includes a product index, a pipe shape number index and a tobacco blend index with composite indices in Volume IV.

The compilation represents a very substantial improvement over the earlier, now out of print, compilation published by the late Barry Levin.  The Levin Xerox compilation (which originally sold for $50 and has sold on eBay for over $100) reproduced 135 catalog pages from  Xerox copies of a half dozen or so catalogs with no attempt to date the compiled catalogs or index the same.  This new compilation reproduces well over ten times the catalog pages, approximately 1,500 pages as compared to 135, working in many cases with original catalogs, using 150 dpi scanning and laser printing on high quality paper to avoid the serious image degradation inherent in the Xerox process, and with each of the 33 catalogs dated and indexed.  Indeed with respect to pipe shapes the resulting indices effectively serve as the first fairly complete 'shape chart' for Dunhill pipes prior to the mid 1970's.  In addition papers for twenty nine pipe related Dunhill English patents from 1904 -1940 are provided.

Because laser printing is significantly more expensive then  Xerox reproduction two original catalog pages have been reproduced in grayscale on each compilation page, however, because catalog pages are significantly smaller then the compilation pages the reduction is on average only 25% - 35%.
