Just picked up this book from Mark at Cigarmony. I know many of you have it. As I strive to increase my knowledge of everything related to CC's, i am finding this excellent reading :tu

I was one of the first people in the world to get a copy of this book...got it from a great cigar aficionado and friend who met with MRN prior to the book's release and actually distributed some of the first copies here in the U.S. I still have the same copy, though it is very, very well worn. A true classic; I have probably read it from cover to cover a dozen times...and still find something new each time. Along with the Gerard books, Zino's Connoisseur's book, the Fabulous Journey, and a handful of others it is one of the all-time great cigar tomes.

Chibnkr, as I started reading this book, as you know in the first few pages of the book they discuss the 1492's and as I was reading I was thinking.....Where did I see that logo before? Now I know! Nice avatar :tu

Interesting... Are these other publications available online?

What does a copy of that cost to obtain these days? I wouldn't mind having one as simply a "show-off" piece on my bookshelf
I think they're around $100.00. Can't remember how much I paid for my copy, but it was around that. Very well crafted book that is a "bible" of sorts. Comprehensive and great photos.
