Woods Reprinted Series Types of Volunteers and Yeomanry 1902 (reprint 1996) Types of Volunteers and Yeomanry 1902 (reprint 1996) 25 - Originals are pretty rare, so these reprints are an opportunity for collectors to appreciate a piece of military history from the Boer War era impeccably illustrated in colour which enhances the amazing variety of uniforms. The firm’s Purple Heather cigarettes are described on the backs as being “as good as they are beautiful” which could equally apply to the cards. Size 68 x 36mm.

Woods Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Romance of the Royal Mail 1935 Romance of the Royal Mail 1935 25 - This set covers the history of the postal service from the mounted relays of the 15th century, via letter-carriers and mail coaches of the 18th century (the first of which ran from Bristol to London in 17 hours on August 2nd 1784), early mail trains of the 1830s, postcards which were first used in the 1870s, early mail vans which began service in 1898, the first airmail in 1911, a Great War field post office and 1930s sorting machinery through to the Post Office which never closes in London’s Leicester Square. In this history of the postal service in this country there are a couple of unusual inclusions such as Thomas Waghorn and the Indian Mail and mail delivery in the Tonga Islands where apparently mail is sealed in petrol tins and thrown in the Pacific for natives to swim out and collect! The charming and distinctive colour artwork is backed by plenty of text and the cards are size 64 x 38mm.

Woods Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Aesops Fables 1932 Aesops Fables 1932 25 - This is a remarkably good set with superb illustrations with the fable related on the back, followed by the moral ? such as 'A friend in need is a friend indeed', 'Don't count your chickens before they are hatched', 'One's meat is another's poison', Necessity is the mother of invention', 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder', and so on. The following are particularly apt for the politics of the recent past ? 'In good times remember that bad times may come', 'Changes are not always for the best' and 'The greedy often overreach themselves'. We will leave you to draw your own conclusions as to whom those morals apply! Amazingly, Aesop's fables date back to the 6th century BC, but their morals are timeless. Size 67 x 36mm
