Very nice. It's worth the bother to click the magnifier icon (upper right) for each of those pages, in order to read them. Although dated (1982), it offers some surprises about specific varieties grown in various areas. Of particular interest is that Venezuela lists only burley and black tobacco, the latter likely being Guácharo, and thus similar to Flojo, Bolivia Criollo Black, and Corrintino Criollo/Misionero Criollo/Salteño Criollo. I was surprised to see Prilep grown in Syria and elsewhere, back in 1982.
