Mitchell Reprinted Series First Aid 1938 (CCS reprint 2001) First Aid 1938 (CCS reprint 2001) 50 - These monochrome cards with informative backs, originally issued in 1928, were designed to be stored in a medicine chest where we are told they would prove invaluable in the case of an emergency. The cards take us through basics such as equipment for a first aid kid and how to tie various slings and bandages, but then get\\\\r\\\\nserious as we are shown an x-ray of a fracture and encouraged to use household items including golf clubs, umbrellas and broom handles as splints. We are advised not to move the patient until the splint is secured, but frankly I would have thought it ambitious to move a patient with a fractured thigh or kneecap no matter how well splinted. We then learn how to approach an electric shock victim, treat choking, scalds, remove foreign bodies from ears and eyes, remove fish hooks from hands and what to use as antidotes to common poisons, then he last card graphically shows a lady on fire. A useful but somewhat scary set! Size 68 x 36mm.

Wills Reprinted Series First Aid 1915 (CCS reprint 1999) First Aid 1915 (CCS reprint 1999) 50 - Originally issued in 1913 this printing has the album clause at the side of the text published in 1915.and this is a reprint of 1999. The original set would have been an important set as many could not afford to visit a doctor and there were more opportunities for injuries due to the war. There are comprehensive instructions on how to bandage virtually every part of the body, how to deal with fractures, perform artificial respiration, carry an injured person, remove foreign bodies and even put out a woman on fire! This last one was particularly important at the time as the combination of long skirts and open fires must have meant this was always a risk. There is plenty of helpful information on the reverse, although it is very much of the keep calm and carry on variety. For instance the treatment for skin peppered by shot says the pain is acute for a minute, but so long as they go to bed, have wet towels place on the area and the joints don’t swell there is no need to call a doctor! An interesting look at vintage healthcare. Size 68 x 36mm.

Reeves Cricket Cricketers of 1912 (reprint 1993) Cricketers of 1912 (reprint 1993) 25 - This set was originally produced in 1912 by Glasgow confectioners Reeves Ltd who it is believed later became a subsidiary of British Automatic Co and made chocolate for vending machines and shops. They contain nice colour pictures of well-known players from the period including J.B. Hobbs, W. Rhodes, P.F. Warner, H. Strudwick, F.E. Woolley, G. Hirst, A.A. Lilley, J.T. Tyldesley and legendary sportsman C.B. Fry. The pictures are backed by informative text which gives team, date of birth and a summary of the cricketer’s style and career. For instance we are told that Prince Ranjitsinghi “practically retired from first-class cricket on his accession to an Indian principality” but was described as “a wizard of cricket, his batting being a marvel of ease and grace”. These would make a worthy addition to any cricket collection and are size 63 x 38mm
