110. Peterson Book Publication Dates & Launch Set

The Peterson Pipe: The Story of Kapp & Peterson has publication dates and a price! Word from Briar Books Press has it that EU orders may ship as early as Christmas through Smokingpipes.eu and Lubinski.it’s various European retailers. You can read about it here and here.

The official book launch and signing is scheduled for the 2019 Chicagoland Pipe & Tobacciana Show, held at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Illinois. We’ll be doing a presentation Friday evening, May 4th, but of course we’ll be at the Briar Books Press table both days of the show.

Here’s the Table of Contents:

Jorgen, how come you are so blessed? It just doesn’t seem fair, somehow…. You must’ve done something really outstanding in your earlier lives…. LOL.

Good to hear. The book sounds and looks absolutely enticing. Not sure if I can truly afford it, but perhaps a treat will be in order. I will keep a look out for the Dublin site as to when the book will be available. Many thanks for posting and sharing.

I hope you can, too, Steven. $60 is $15 less than Peterson’s lowest entry-grade pipe (the Dublin Edition) here in the States, which retails at $75. I know the publisher worked hard with Peterson to get the pricing down so everyone who wanted one could afford it.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend. It’s been a lot of fun to be kept apprised of the development of the work!

Hey Don, no worries from me on spelling. Just ask my publisher about my own grammatical deficiences, esp. regarding “en” and “em” dashes. And we won’t talk about proper noun mistakes (names) we found in the final editing, okay? LOL. Thanks for keeping up with the book’s progress!
