Cadet Animals & Wildlife Daktari 1968 Daktari 1968 25 - Daktari, which means ‘Doctor’ in Swahili, was a popular children’s TV show broadcast between 1966 and 1969. It followed the adventures of vet Dr Tracy, his daughter Paula and their staff who live at an animal study centre and hospital in East Africa. The colour cards picture action from the show which also starred a cross-eyed lion called Clarence and a chimp named Judy who lived with the family. Actually the animals were the real stars of this show and there are lovely pictures of Clarence and Judy, plus a host of patients. The backs contain brief text concerning the scene, together with a different Swahili word to learn on each card, although some of the words seem a little random as whilst ‘friend’ or ‘adventure’ might be appropriate why would you need the words for ‘plate’ or ‘teapot’? This childhood favourite is sure to bring back memories. Cards size 67 x 35mm

Tunnicliffe R.A and amongst the plants included are the Lesser Celandine, Wood Anemone, Daffodil, Periwinkle, Water Crowfoot, Cowslip and Sweet Violet.

Lambert & Butler Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Third Rhodesian Series 1930 Third Rhodesian Series 1930 25 - Lambert & Butler’s 25 Third Rhodesian Series issued in 1930, reflects attitudes representative of those times describing grown men as ‘boys’ displaying Negroid characteristics of long skull etc., and saying which tribe is “the most civilized”. The series begins with a picture of the then prime minister Howard Unwin and continues with a variety of themes such as a native family, building a hut, dug-outs on the Zambesi, pounding corn, baby elephants and so on before ending with Warkie Colliery where natives housed in compounds mined a million tons of coal annually. Card no. 7 is particularly scathing of the locals “steeped in superstition”, “hideously cruel” and of “revolting customs” which the “Authorities must take great care to prevent”. The set completes a trio by Lambert & Butler and follows The Rhodesian Series (1928) and Fauna of Rhodesia (1929). Size 68 x 36mm

Lea Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Famous Views 1936 Famous Views 1936 M48 - Between 1906 and 1938 the Manchester firm of R & J Lea issued several popular card series with their well-known cigarette brands Chairman, Recorder and Tournament. This particular series was issued in 1936 and titled “Famous Views” and was issued with Tournament Cigarettes. These contain splendid real black and white photos with interesting facts on the back, but the title is perhaps misleading as the first six cards are devoted to the funeral of H.M. King George V, including the last journey from King’s Cross, the lying in-state in Westminster Hall, the procession and service in St. George’s Chapel, Windsor where King Edward VIII sprinkled earth from Frogmore on his father’s coffin. The next seventeen cards are sights of London such as Piccadilly Circus and the Mansion House, followed by views, mostly of famous buildings, around Britain finishing with three of Manchester Lea’s home city including the Royal Exchange. So the title is somewhat misleading as to the contents and we suspect the company may have substituted some of the original subjects at the last minute in order to cover the royal event swiftly within a series virtually ready for release when the King died in January. Whether this is indeed the case we shall never know, but this is an unusual and highly informative set which was also issued in a standard size in both glossy and matt finishes. These cards are size 76 x 51mm. This was also issued in a standard size (68 x 36mm).

Similarly J.K. means “I am about to swing”. The colour pictures also include a portrait of Britain’s greatest naval hero Admiral Lord Nelson and his legendary message rallying his men before the Battle of Trafalgar is spelt out on nine of the cards. The message, which still evokes a tingle of national pride, was “England Expects That Every Man Will Do His Duty”. A colourful and fascinating set with cards size 69 x 37mm.

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.

Included are a picture of a clock with “put in more overtime! and clock on for victory in no time!”, a cartoon of Hitler with the slogan “Hitler hopes you’ll be late tomorrow”, a drawing of a hanging smoker captioned “hanging around smoking won’t help hang Hitler”, a cartoon rat with swastika and Hitler moustache eating the cheese of absenteeism headed “what a bit of cheese for the Nazi rat!”, a picture of a lady on a phone talking about shopping, children etc with the caption “You may have other calls but the call of your country comes first” and a cartoon Hitler with “Hitler does not appreciate your work but we do!” You are holding history in your hands with these cards which are size 91 x 64mm.

Beginning in 1843 with a contraption built by Sir George Cayley, the “Father of British Aeronautics” which is a multiple helicopter type of which there is a model in the Science Museum in London, we are guided through the various landmark developments such as the Wright Brothers’ 1903 aeroplane, the monoplane in which Louis Bleriot flew the Channel in a historic 31-minute flight in July 1909, the Short Brothers’ “Shirl” torpedo bomber of 1917 designed for flying off the decks of ships, the Vickers-Vimy in which Alcock and Brown made their first direct trans-Atlantic flight in June 1919, right through to the Vickers Supermarine in which Flight-Lt. Stainforth established his world speed record of 407.5mph and won the Schneider Trophy for Great Britain. When one considers that the first race, just 18 years earlier, was won at a mere 46mph the truly staggering advance in aerial capability can be appreciated. This fascinating series of green-tinted pictures with detailed texts on the back is of great historical significance and important to any aviation collection and was also produced in 1933 with a brown-tint.

Lambert & Butler Motoring How Motor Cars Work 1931 How Motor Cars Work 1931 25 - In 1931 mass-production had reduced car prices to within the reach of millions and demand was matched by huge new factories such as the new opened Ford plant at Dagenham. How motor cars worked was no longer the interest solely of a wealthy minority of enthusiasts it was vital information for a new generation of motorists unfamiliar with what was under the bonnet so this set much have been very helpful. It begins with generalities such as the engine structure and main working parts, then quickly turns to specifics such as the lubrication system, clutch, gear box, ignition, brakes etc. All are shown in excellent detailed colour diagrams backed with comprehensive explanations. The principals are largely the same today, although the details are somewhat different. Enjoy this set for what it is – a first class production which gives an intriguing glimpse of the motor car as it was in the 1930s. Card size 68 x 36mm

Lambert & Butler Military - General Series Interesting Customs and Traditions of the Navy, Army and Air Force 1939 Interesting Customs and Traditions of the Navy, Army and Air Force 1939 50 - This set would win the prize for having one of the longest and most cumbersome titles, but don’t let that put you off as this is one of the best series every issued. The excellent colour pictures present the subjects with great clarity in a variety and style which immediately captures your interest, whilst the highly informative backs give a wonderful insight into the history and workings of the armed forces. As our then New Issues Editor wrote in our magazine in February 1939 the series “breaks entirely new ground. It is well-produced and intrinsically of great interest”. The first 18 cards look at the Navy, then cards 19 to 43 examine the Army and the remaining cards look at the R.A.F. The reason for so few cards on the R.A.F was explained in the magazine with the words “as is natural with a new Service where ceremonial arising from tradition is necessarily limited.” To give you a flavour of the set this contains pictures of aircraft diving in salute over the Royal Yacht, the presenting of leeks to the Welsh Guards on St. David’s Day and issuing the daily grog ration aboard ship. We cannot recommend this set highly enough. Cards size 68 x 36mm.

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.
