Nishikigoi Koi Carp 1997
M P Cards Fish, Fishing & the Ocean Nishikigoi Koi Carp 1997 Nishikigoi Koi Carp 1997 L14 - These beautiful colour pictures are the work of artist K. Siddle and show the wonderful markings so prized by owners of these fish. Perhaps the most striking is the Shusui on the last card which has dark blue scales along the ridge of the back. The backs tell you what to look for if you want a prize wining fish. Just as pedigree dogs have to have certain shaped heads or markings etc. so to be a champion koi carp the patterns must be in the right colours and in the right places and we are advised on the back of the Taisho Sanke card that black stripes sometimes appear in the pectoral fins, but should not exceed two or three stripes or that a Tancho should only have a round red mark on its head which must not extend over the eye or lips. This set takes an interesting look at an unusual subject and are size 80 x 62mm

Victoria Gallery Fish, Fishing & the Ocean Deep Sea Diving 1997 Deep Sea Diving 1997 50 - These cards tell the story of man’s attempts to explore the underwater world from the Victorian era through to World War II. Amazingly the twelve-bolt helmet invented by Augustus Siebe in 1837 remained in production until 1975! The set covers all manner of diving things including life-saving breathing apparatus and a recompression chamber, communication underwater, diving pumps, airlocks and salvage operations including that on HMS Gladiator which was sunk in the Solent in 1908. There is plenty of fascinating information on the card backs including the harrowing fact that divers working on the reclamation of the Gladiator in the pitch black and confined spaces had to shoulder aside the corpses of the sailors in order to close the watertight doors so she could be pumped out. Riveting stuff. Cards size 68 x 36mm
