Help needed in book project

As many of you know, and a few will know now, I'm trying to write a book about the history of snuff in Poland. I've almost gattered all the thing I could about that in the Polish book - though XVII-XX century - and I think I'll be able to finish it this year.

If any of you guys will find anything about Polish snuff factories, Polish emigatants taking snuff in your country - let me know. It will surely help me in my project.


  • As to Polish immigrants to the US, you have seen the threads on Goike's Kashubian that I posted a couple years ago? There were some newspaper articles linked in there.
  • Yes, I remember that thread. Seems I'll stick with Detroid (Goike, Wolff, Scotten and Dillon) and Chicago (Groya) for more informations.
  • Filek, in case you were interested in some help, I could help with typesetting/design or something connected with book production (fine typography is a must!).
  • Thank you, but first of all I need to finish writing. So far I've managed to finish three chapters, icluding: "Famous snuff takers in anecdotes", "Snuff jokes" and "Crimes involving snuff". I'm hoping to finish three more as well, like "Snuff in literature".
  • @Filek, if you're doing an English version, I'd be happy to be an editor/proofreader.
  • Unfortunately I'm only planning a Polish version. There shouldn't be much trouble in translating the text into English off course, expect the poems and a bunch of old quotes, but I wouldn't like to be in the skin of the translator when it comes to those.
  • I'm curious. Does anyone know, were Gebr. Bernard the only ones to make snuff in Offenbach?
  • Any Hungarian here, who could tell me how the thing with having a tobacco factory looked like in about 1817? I've found a Pole that had a factory in Pest, but I'm not quite sure what to think about that.

  • Does anyone know this particular ilustration. I would like to know who is the original author.

  • How is your book, Filek? Will you publish it this year? I will definitely buy it.
  • I wasn't in the mood for any snuff related topic for the past years, so I haven't done much in the terms of writing. But I did not gave up the idea of writing a book, since I already have around 100 pages of text and with a bit of systematic work, I should be able to finish this year. At least I hope so.
