This month the Pijpenkabinet received an extraordinary gift. It is the collection of Ab Venemans of Amsterdam. Venemans was and still is a motivated smoker who for the past thirty years smoked hundreds of different tobaccos. He always kept the wrappers and stored them methodically and so he finally became the owner of an almost complete series of tobacco pouches. Rev. Venemans did not only keep the pouches in mint condition but also fully documented. Especially for the future this acquisition is of great archive value.
