Jackson Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Shots from the Films 1937 Shots from the Films 1937 M24 - This excellent black and white set includes the big-budget epic Elephant Boy which had come out earlier that year and made a star of the true-life elephant boy Sabu. Another newcomer that year was Humphrey Bogart who had a tough-man role in “Black Legion”. The 1930s were the heyday of the film musical and Britain’s top female singing and dancing star, Jessie Matthews, is pictured in a still from “Head over Heels”. 1937 was a vintage year for the cinema as is demonstrated by this set which also shows scenes from “King Solomon’s Mines”, “Romeo & Juliet”, “Charge of the Light Brigade” with Errol Flynn and “A Woman Rebels” starring a youthful Katherine Hepburn. A small size set of 28 was also produced which also included these last three cards plus “Black Legion”, “General Spanky”, “Cain & Mabel”, “The Plough & The Stars”, “Flying Hostess”, “Well Done Henry”, “Take a Chance” and “Sensation”, but all have different pictures. Aside from these all the other subjects are different as is the informative text on the numbered backs. Wonderful Stuff! Cards size 76 x 51mm

Lambert & Butler Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Pirates and Highwayman 1926 Pirates and Highwayman 1926 25 - This is a very good series indeed, using excellent colour artwork to bring to life many exciting and often bloody episodes in history. Some of the names like Captain Kidd, Captain Morgan and Dick Turpin will be familiar to us all, but others may not be. Most lived violent lives and paid the price with violent deaths, as we discover on the vividly descriptive backs which mostly end with the words “hanged” or “executed”, or in the case of Mary Read, one of the two female pirates in the set, “died in prison”. We learn much of the lawless times on the high seas and highways in the 17th and 18th centuries, of great riches, hardship and slavery. Many were famous and romantic figures in their day like Frenchman Claude Duval who was as famous for his gallantry as for his daring robberies on the roads around London. He was hanged at Tyburn in 1670 “to the great grief of the women” we are told. His tombstone in Covent Garden Church bore the epitaph “Here lies Duval: Reader, if male thou art, Look to thy purse; if female to thy heart.” Exciting stuff! Cards size 68 x 36mm.

Wills Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Safety First 1934 (CCS reprint 2000) Safety First 1934 (CCS reprint 2000) 50 - Road safety was a real problem in 1934 when these were originally issued and the colourful cards illustrate some of the dangers. Actually aside from issues with tramlines and using hand signals as there were no indicators most these safety instructions are still relevant today, but it is the charming vintage pictures which are the real attraction. The warnings include not overtaking on bends, not squeezing through traffic if you are a motor-cyclist, how to pass animals, how to correct a skid and not to throw anything from a moving car as well as how to cross safely. There is plenty of further information on the card backs. Cards size 68 x 36mm.

Faulkner Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Optical Illusions 1935 (CCS reprint 2000) Optical Illusions 1935 (CCS reprint 2000) 25 - This is a fascinating series originally produced in 1935 and reprinted in 2000 pictures all sorts of illusions which indicate how easily our eyes are fooled. Take the simple picture on card no. 2 which show two different lines with inverted arrows and normal arrow tips on the ends. Looking at these pictures the line with the arrows looks shorter than the inverted arrows and yet, as the card explains, if measured you will see that they are in fact exactly the same length. A similar trick is played with a series of posts in a corridor which are the same height but appear to differ due to the perspective of the hall. The backs give information on why these illusions work. Cards size 68 x 36mm.
