Dogs Series 1908
Edwards Ringer And Bigg Dogs and Pets Dogs Series 1908 Dogs Series 1908 23 - Dogs are still regarded as man’s best friend which may explain why so many manufacturers have issued sets on the subject over the years. The delightful colour dog portraits in this set are the same as the dogs in the Fowls, Pigeons and Dogs set produced by a number of issuers including Ogdens, but this set was issued by Edwards Ringer & Bigg and has their “Smoke Klondyke Cigarettes” advert on the reverse as well as comprehensive text concerning the dogs. Over the years the popularity of certain breeds particularly larger dogs like the St. Bernard, Bloodhound or Otter-Hound has waned, whilst others like the Pug and Dachshund have grown popular, but these canine pictures are so good it is impossible not to appreciate them all. Included are the Bull-Dog, a Clumber Spaniel, Dalmatian, an alert looking Beagle, Greyhound, English Mastiff, Rough-Coated Collie, a very stylish Poodle, Old English Sheepdog, Smooth Fox Terrier, Retriever and Irish Terrier. Cards size 68 x 36mm.

Gallaher Dogs and Pets Dogs 2nd Series 1938 Dogs 2nd Series 1938 48 - You can’t fail to be charmed by the lovely colour dog pictures in this set. As with the 1st Series issued in 1936 each breed is pictured in an appropriate setting with useful information on the reverse concerning their history, appearance and characteristics. These range from the big breeds such as the Great Dane, Bloodhound, Newfoundland and Deerhound to popular small modern breeds such as the Pomeranian, Papillon, Dachshund and Pug as well as working dogs like the Collie, Retriever, Labrador and Field Spaniel. There are some unusual inclusions such as the Otterhound, African Hairless Terriers and Tibetan Mastiff, but surely the most unusual is the Dingo. This wild dog of Australia can apparently be tamed and is sometimes seen at dog shows according to the card back. A beautiful set with cards size 63 x 37mm.

Gallaher Dogs and Pets Dogs 1st Series 1936 Dogs 1st Series 1936 48 - From a cute litter of tiny Staffordshire Bull pups to the considerable bulk of a Bull Mastiff, the pictures capture perfectly the individual character of each animal, whilst the backs describe their origin and what makes each breed one of “man’s best friends”. Some interesting facts emerge – the Samoyde “provides the Eskimo with flesh for food and fur for clothing”; the Bulldog, Britain’s national breed, gets its name from its use in bull-baiting; the Clumber Spaniel, favourite breed of George V, is named after Clumber, Nottingham, where it was bred by the Duke of Newcastle; and the Boston Terrier is America’s national breed. Queen Victoria kept Borzois and the Russian Royal Family used them for hunting wolves. Size 63 x 37mm
