General Files

Tobacco/Smoking Related (not site-specific)

The following bibliography lists those publications and off prints held by the National Pipe Archive as of April 2017 that are not site specific. For site specific publications see also UK publications and World publications.

Wherever possible a complete bibliographic reference has been given. In some cases, however, the archive does not hold all the information, such as volume number and page number. In those instances, an effort has been made to provide as much information as possible so that the reference is usable.

Each entry is followed by an NPA accession code, for example LIVNP 1997.17.2, this refers back to the pipe filing system and will help to locate each article.

The current list comprises all the published material held by the NPA. Please note that this is a working document and is constantly being updated.
