The Academy came into being in 1984 on the initiative of a Frenchman, André-Paul Bastien with our inaugral meeting held in Paris in 1985. Initially based in Italy it moved to France in 1992. The Academy has always tried to promote knowledge and research about tobacco pipes and their use in every era, in all parts of the world and from every angle, whether cultural, artistic, scientific, sociological or ethnographic. In 2008 we moved our head office to Liverpool where it is housed within the School of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology at the University, under new charitable articles of association (Registered Charity Number 1126166) and new Internal Rules.

The world of antique pipes is a fascinating place full of surprising materials, shapes, styles, sizes and configurations and, depending on where the pipes were produced, can be encountered in a broad range of embellishments and accents in precious and semi-precious stones, silver and gold filigree, amber, ivory, horn, bone, and tortoiseshell.

The principal aim of the Society is to bring together collectors, researchers and other interested individuals to share and enrich knowledge about the history of tobacco pipes.
