Mid 19th century; earliest use found in Charles Kingsley (1819–1875), novelist, Church of England clergyman, and controversialist. From miso- + ancient Greek καπνός smoke + -ic, after post-classical Latin Misocapnus, title of James VI & I's Counter-blaste to Tobacco in Bishop Montagu's Latin edition of his works. Compare French misocapnie, Portuguese misocapnia, both in sense ‘hatred of tobacco smoke’.
