Brooke Bond Animals & Wildlife African Wild Life blue back 1961 African Wild Life blue back 1961 50 - These cards are the work of internationally renowned wildlife painter C.F. Tunnicliffe who both illustrated the stunning pictures of animals from the African continent and wrote the descriptions on the reverse. He certainly knew his stuff as there are loads of interesting facts to learn like the fact that Nile Crocodiles cover their eggs with sand leaving them to be incubated by the sun, but dig them up when they are ready to hatch or did you know that Wart Hogs live in holes which they enter backwards so their formidable tusks face outwards. The animals pictured include a Lion, Gorilla, a delightful array of big cats including some like the Caracal and Genet which we had not heard of, s Banded Mongoose, Porcupine etc., but favourite drawings include the Jumping Hare in mid-flight with shadow underneath, Zebras and Sable Antelope at the watering hole, the tiny Klipspringer antelope leaping between rocks and a majestic male Elephant. This set was also re-issued with a black back in 1973. An album was also available to house this set. These cards are size 68 x 36mm.

Many of the names will still be remembered today, such was their brilliance – Alex James, Dixie Dean, Clifford Bastin, Len Harvey, Kid Berg, Gordon Richards, Steve Donoghue, Frank Wooley, Jack Hobbs and Patsy Hendren – just a few of the stars in this sporting hall of fame. Other colourful characters include Bertram Mills of circus fame who put up £10,000 for the capture of the Loch Ness monster, Malcolm Campbell, Tom Webster who was a famous cartoonist popular for his sports cartoons in the Daily Mail and Lord Clydesdale who was the first person to fly over Mount Everest.

Gallaher Animals & Wildlife Wild Animals 1937 Wild Animals 1937 48 - This set was issued in 1937 and when it was reviewed in our magazine that year we described it as being nicely produced and said that “the compilers have shown commendable originality in the choice of subjects, many out of the way types such as the platypus, rare foxes, jerboa, tenrec, panda, pangolin and others being illustrated as well as many of the more familiar wild animals”. We would have to agree with this statement, but would add that these have first class colour artwork and the text includes some delightful touches such as the puma “purrs when pleased and like a kitten will jump to catch butterflies or play for hours by itself at hide-and-seek.” It also added that it is “friendly to man”, but alas man has not proved a good friend to the puma or many other species. We can’t praise this series highly enough. Cards size 63 x 37mm.

Gerard Military - General Series Modern Armaments numbered issue 1936 Modern Armaments numbered issue 1936 50 - When this set was first reviewed in our magazine C.C.N back in 1936 it was described as “very much of the moment and exceedingly interesting.” The review also stated that “the cards are the same size as Rothman’s series from the same period which is no surprise as by 1936 Louis Gerard Limited had become part of the Rothmans group”. This photographic series contains warships, aeroplanes, tanks, guns etc. with an explanatory title in the bottom white border. The numbered backs give details of the issuer, title of the set and confirms that the subjects are “from actual photographs”, but sadly contains no information about the pictures. Among the subjects covered are an observation balloon, battle cruiser, anti-aircraft gun, firing a naval torpedo, a giant flying boat, a sound detector, giant submarine, heavy tank on manoeuvres, an aircraft carrier with planes on deck, night bomber, machine rifle, tanks in action, howitzers, field dress, searchlight apparatus and some grim reminders of the First World War such as troops in their trenches prepared for gas attack and erecting barbed wire.

Gallaher Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Portraits of Famous Stars 1935 Portraits of Famous Stars 1935 48 - Fred Astaire, Katharine Hepburn, Douglas Fairbanks, Marlene Dietrich and Gertrude Lawrence, famous stars indeed whose names are as familiar today as they were in 1935 when Gallahers pictured them in their series of 48 Portraits of Famous Stars. The cinema in the mid-1930s was at the peak of its popularity, with U.K. admissions exceeding fifty million a week. And one of the biggest box office successes was the film version of John Buchan's "The Thirty-Nine Steps" The two stars, Robert Donat and Madeleine Carroll, both feature in this card series, reviving memories of their gripping adventure as fugitives, a classic portrayal that has never been equalled in the several remakes. Not all the stars in the set are instantly recognisable, and we must admit that we've never heard of Lorna Storm, Tomari Desni or Grete Natzler. Excellent colour portraits are backed by informative texts.

Gallaher Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Tricks and Puzzles black back 1933 Tricks and Puzzles black back 1933 100 - Relatively simple tricks with matches, coins, handkerchiefs etc. can intrigue adults as well as mystifying children and so there is almost endless amusement to be gained from this series of 100 Tricks and Puzzles issued in 1933. The coloured fronts are carefully explained in the texts on the back so that even the least dexterous of us can become impressive exponents of sleight-of-hand. Among the tricks you can master are the getting a penny out from under a bottle without touching it, passing a tumbler through a table, bucket balancing etc. There are lots of tricks involving money, matchsticks and maths, but some are definitely not to be tried by children without supervision, such as the lighting a safety match with your boot trick or the breaking glass by setting fire to a thread of turpentine!
