[h-cost] dating a smoking woman

2016-02-13 Thread snspies
I have a doodle/marginalia of a woman smoking a small black pipe which is in a 
French manuscript dated 1318.  Since smoking did not occur in Europe until the 
16th century, I am assuming that this doodle is a later addition.


However, she is wearing distinctive head wear, and I am wondering if she can be 
more closely dated based on this item of clothing.  


If anyone would be willing to take a look, I would be happy to send the picture 
as a jpg.  


Thank you.

yes, pleaseā€¦  I am currently reading an alternative history set where-in folks 
unable to access regular smoking-tobacco make do with all kinds of 
substitutions (usually awful), so unless there's a cured tobacco  leaf as we 
know it also in that babewyn, I'd wonder if what she were smoking might not 
have been some  other herbal material.
