Throughout his life three interests have been all-absorbing to Edward Pinto: history, wood and craftsmanship but he was also brought up in an atmosphere of tobacco, for his father was a cigar importer, as was his father before him. With this background and an ever-increasing interest in wood, wood craftsmanship and social history, from boyhood onwards, it was more or less inevitable that one day he should write a book about the wooden bygones of tobacco.
