Lot 20

There are some fantastic items in this auction, but one stood out and deserves to be our star lot. This is lot 20 Allen & Ginter Tob USA 50 Racing Colours of the World c1890 (estimated at £680 as it is in less than perfect condition). These are unusual as they show ladies in the colours of famous racehorse owners from around the globe. This presumably doubled the appeal as not only do you get cards on horse racing but you also get images of a tightly corseted ladies, some of whom know how to use a riding crop – racy in more ways than one! You can find details of some of the other highlights below, but make sure you read through the auction catalogue carefully so you don’t miss out. 
Other lots in the auction offer sets & type cards from as little as £2 a lot and many other card collecting items. Each lot is carefully described with its condition and estimated value.  A guide to how we assess condition and how to bid can be found on the bidding sheet or click here for information, so it couldn't be easier if you are an auction beginner. . If you have any queries about any of the lots don’t hesitate to get in touch on 01458 273452 or cards@londoncigcard.co.uk

Wills Reprinted Series First Aid 1915 (C.C.S. reprint 1999) First Aid 1915 (C.C.S. reprint 1999) 50 - Originally issued in 1913 this printing has the album clause at the side of the text published in 1915.and this is a reprint of 1999. The original set would have been an important set as many could not afford to visit a doctor and there were more opportunities for injuries due to the war. There are comprehensive instructions on how to bandage virtually every part of the body, how to deal with fractures, perform artificial respiration, carry an injured person, remove foreign bodies and even put out a woman on fire! This last one was particularly important at the time as the combination of long skirts and open fires must have meant this was always a risk. There is plenty of helpful information on the reverse, although it is very much of the keep calm and carry on variety. For instance the treatment for skin peppered by shot says the pain is acute for a minute, but so long as they go to bed, have wet towels place on the area and the joints don’t swell there is no need to call a doctor! An interesting look at vintage healthcare. Size 68 x 36mm.
