Crisp hardcover. ; "My primary aim has been to construct a meaningful and analytically useful typology of the material remains (chiefly pipes) of the aboriginal smoking technology; I have also tried to present, as objectively as possible, a summation of ethnohistorical literature. My intent has been to clarify, in this manner, the role of smoking technology as I have defined it in this specific culture, and to render the information useful as an approach to the study of the entire culture, as well as a means to whereby reconstruct the culture history." - Introduction. ; 252 pages.
