Rockwell Motoring German Armoured Vehicles of World War II 2001 German Armoured Vehicles of World War II 2001 LT10 - Following on from the British Armoured Vehicles sets that Rockwell issued here we see what the other side had in the way of armoured vehicles, presented in the same format as the British sets and also available in small (68 x 36mm) and large size (79 x 62mm). The Panzer tanks were perhaps the most famous and the set includes the V Panther, based on the Soviet T34 which had earlier given German models a nasty mauling. A measure of its quality was the U.S. Army’s view that five Shermans were needed to knock out a single Panther. Size. 89 x 64mm.

Dominion Tobacco Ships & Shipping Old Ships 2nd Series 1935 Old Ships 2nd Series 1935 25 - Dominion Tobacco was taken over by the Godfrey Phillips group in 1941, but during its short period of independence this London-based company produced four series all featuring old ships. This set is the 2nd Series which covers Naval ships from the late 17th to late 19th Centuries. The black and white drawings show the vessels in intricate detail, but it is the backs that supply the greatest interest because they reveal so many intriguing stories about those troubled times. For example, the French 74-gunner “Terrible” was captured by Hawke and added to the Royal Navy, the name later being given to a new cruiser built in 1895. The French 84-gunner “Franklin”, built in 1796, was captured in the Battle of the Nile and became H.M.S “Canopus”, but she was so fast that the British built ten ships to the same design between 1821 and 1832 and “Canopus” herself was still in service in 1850. Then there was H.M.S “Bellerophon” upon which Napoleon was brought to England after the battle of Waterloo, arriving at Torbay on July 24th 1815. The card tells us “She was surrounded by sight-seers who dared everything to catch a glimpse of Napoleon and if they succeeded the air was rent with cheers”. Fascinating stuff. The cards are size 68 x 36mm.

Drapkin Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Girls of Many Lands 1929 Girls of Many Lands 1929 M50 - Drapkin or Major Drapkin & Co. were founded in London in 1898 and issued cards from 1912 to 1934, but by 1929 when this set was issued they were a branch of the United Kingdom Tobacco Co. or so it says on the card backs. This distinctive set contains colourful, almost art-deco head and shoulders pictures of young women in national costume, set against a black background and casts the net wide with a higher proportion of non-European subjects than is often the case in such sets. The backs are numbered and arranged alphabetically from Afghanistan to Wales with descriptions of the national dress of each. Odd inclusions are the Australian card which pictures a lady of European heritage with a scarf who is described as making her own clothes and being a “splendid pal” and the Canadian card which says “the women have plenty of time for outside interests”! In case you were wondering the English girl wears a beret style hat and striped top and is described as “noted for her love of sport.. and a keen lover of animals”. An interesting set with cards size 77 x 53mm

Dominion Tobacco Ships & Shipping Old Ships 3rd Series 1936 Old Ships 3rd Series 1936 25 - The Dominion Tobacco Company (1929) Ltd issued just four series of cards, all of which were of old ships. This is the third of these, dating from 1936, and it illustrates vessels from Roman times through to the 20th century with some impressively detailed artwork reproduced in a rather drab green colour. The backs are a rich source of maritime history – for example the text relating to Sir Francis Drake’s flagship “Golden Hind” not only gives commonly-known information about his famous voyage, Queen Elizabeth and all that. It also points out that the ship started out as the “Pelican” but Drake changed its name and that after Drake received his knighthood attempts were made to preserve such a famous ship, a trench being dug into the river bank at Deptford into which she was hauled, but she fell to pieces some forty years later. The final three cards picture twentieth century liners “Doric”, “Olympic” and Blue Riband holder “Mauretania”. Coincidentally, all three had been scrapped in 1935. Size 68 x 36mm

Gallaher Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Aesops Fables inscribed A Series of 50 (1931) Aesops Fables inscribed A Series of 50 (1931) 25 - Although there are only twenty-five cards, the set is captioned on the backs "Series of 50". We don't know the explanation, but the fact remains 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 Note The same series was also issued inscribed Series of 25

Ardath Military - General Series Life in the Services 1938 Life in the Services 1938 50 - This set was issued just before the start of the Second World War and paints a somewhat glowing picture of life in the British services which we are sure many of those who took part in that conflict would dispute. The R.A.F for instance “offers all the advantages of a healthy, open-air existence”, the Royal Navy “security of employment, good pay and a varied and interesting life” and the Army “offers exceptional advantages such as foreign travel and liberal holidays. Well for many the foreign travel part was true, but the liberal holidays still awaited! These cards are all based on black and white photographs supplied by the War Department and were designed to show what a happy, active and rewarding life awaited recruits to the armed forces. Good clear pictures with comprehensive texts on the adhesive backs make this an interesting and historical set. The cards are size 68 x 36mm.

Dexter Flags, Arms & Maps Borough Arms 1900 Borough Arms 1900 30 - Produced during the reign of Queen Victoria when civic pride was at its height this delightful and under-rated series was issued by the small Nottinghamshire firm of R.I. Dexter & Co., whose factory was a Hucknall between Nottingham and Mansfield. It features arms of English towns, boroughs and cities in white embossed on a Wedgewood blue background and the backs are plain except for the company name. Among those places features are Birmingham whose arms reflect its industrial past, Bolton whose arms include an arrow representing archers from the area who took part in the Battle of Flodden in 1513 and a spindle representing the cotton industry, Leeds whose arms include two owls derived from the arms of the first Alderman and a fleece representing the wool industry, the City of London with its two dragons, Portsmouth with its Arab looking star and crescent and the three leopards or loggerheads on the Shrewsbury arms. There are very few arms for southern towns or cities, which is perhaps understandable as they were a northern firm, but why was Edinburgh included when all the rest were English examples? Whatever the reason this is a stylish set, size 63 x 36mm.

Gallaher Aviation & Space Aeroplanes 1939 Aeroplanes 1939 48 - We can’t praise this set highly enough as the colour pictures showing planes in flight are excellent, but it is the text on the back that adds to the appeal as this set was issued on the cusp of Word War II and these provide a fascinating look at aircraft of the period. Included are the iconic Spitfire and Hurricane which we are told together represent “one of Britain’s strongest methods of defence”, a Sunderland Flying Boat, Bristol Blenheim, De Havilland Tiger Moth, Westland Lysander, Miles Monarch, a Wellington bomber, the Armstrong, Whitworth Ensign which we are told had recently been delivery to Imperial Airways for European and Empire services, a Wellesley long-rang bomber, an autogiro, Fairey Swordfish, Lockheed Electra and Gloster Gladiator.

Dobie Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Four Square Book 3rd Series (nos 65-96) 1960 Four Square Book 3rd Series (nos 65-96) 1960 M32 - These cards were issued with Dobie’s “Four Square” cigarettes in 1960. Dobies were, by this time, part of the Godfrey Phillips Associated Companies group and a 1st and 2nd Series of these had already been issued in 1959. The card fronts contain colour replicas of book covers with the name of the author, title and brief description in a blue panel above the picture and the price in the bottom corner of the picture. Incidentally ‘Four-Square Books’ were published by a subsidiary company Landsborough Publications. The covers picture an incident from the book and the numbered backs give further details about the novel. Included in this batch are C.S. Forester’s “The Naval War of 1812”, Edward Abbey’s western novel “Brave Cowboy”, Fyodor Dostoevsky’s “Crime and Punishment”, comedy “Lucky Jim” by Kingsley Amis, “Black Narcissus” by Rumer Godden which was turned into a successful film, the legendary “Tarzan of the Apes” by Edgar Rice Burroughs and Roman epic “The Three Legions” by Gregory Solon. There is no issuer’s name just the Four-Square Book name which often leads to confusion as there is nothing to link the series with the cigarettes with which the cards were distributed. Size 75 x 50mm.

Sampler Collections

We have taken one card from each of 450 post-war standard size series and assembled them into nine different groups of 50. These are particularly useful for the collector who wishes to see sample cards before buying complete sets, and are also a great foundation for a "type" collection. Each group of 50 costs £6.00

Price: £6.00
