'''Addendum:'''[[File:Edsel.jpg|thumb|left|140px|P&T 1998]]<br>Edsel James was in the first generation of serious (pre-Loring) Dunhill collectors.

'''Addendum:'''<br>
 
+
Edsel James was my first real “pipe mentor” and over the years, although we never actually met in person, he also became a good friend.
 +
[[File:Edsel.jpg|thumb|left|160px|P&T 1998]]

In early 1999, I came across an article in Pipes and Tobaccos magazine (Winter, 1998) entitled “Mr. Dunhill” (see above) which was penned by Chuck Stanion.  Among other things, the article included a photograph of three old deeply blasted Dunhill “Shell” pipes: They were just what I had been looking for without success. Since at that time I was not yet “connected” to many people in the pipe world it seemed like Edsel James might hold the key to my accessing one or two of these beautiful old pipes. (This was in the “old days” when rare pipes usually changed hands via personal connections. Although the modern auctioning approach to trading has created access to a much wider range of pipes, I lament the days where trading was undertaken mostly in the way it did between Edsel and me. I have a strong distaste for the “modern” auction format) (...) '''See the full story''' [https://pipedia.org/images/2/2b/Edsel_James_-_Erik.pdf here].<br>
 +
Edsel’s oldest son, Craig, wrote a brief sketch of his father’s life at my request when I told him about the project I was working on for Pipedia. With his permission I close with an attachment of Craig’s letter. '''See it''' [https://pipedia.org/images/e/e3/Craig_james_LETTER.PDF here].
 +
<br>
 +
* I certainly do not consider all of the pipes in my collection extraordinary. Many, for whatever reason, simply have something about them that I just “take to”.

* For more on Edsel James '''see it''' [https://pipedia.org/wiki/Dunhill#History here].
