Fribourg & Treyer Bureau Snuff

Bureau, the complex, great Regency favourite snuff, made by Fribourg & Treyer (through Wilsons of Sharrow) has been put back into production and will join Macouba and Old Paris amongst my favourites. Interesting titbits about Macouba: as well as being one of Brummell's favourites, it features in W M Thackeray's Pendennis (undoubtedly inspired by Brummell), and is sometimes said also to have been the inspiration behind name of the character Mr Micawber in Charles Dickens' David Copperfield.
