International Tobacco Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Gentlemen! The King! (black back) 1937 Gentlemen! The King! (black back) 1937 100 - Although issued during coronation year 1937, this set was prepared in 1935 because “The King” referred to is George V and not his successor and indeed on the card backs we are told that “it can be inserted into a pictorial biography of H.M. King George V, particulars of which are enclosed in each packet”. It is unusual in being of two different sizes, with sixty standard size and forty large and it is on art paper rather than cardboard. The colour pictures take us from the King’s early childhood in 1866, through his public appearances and ends with his radio broadcast to the Empire broadcast in May 1935 as part of his Jubilee celebrations. Sadly he was to die just seven months later in January 1936. Rather prophetically the card featuring his second son the Duke of York, who at that time was not expected to be King, describes him as “the father of the young lady who may one day sit upon the throne of England” and of course she did. These cards were also issued with the text on the back in blue and provide a fascinating glimpse into the life of this hardworking monarch. The standard size cards are 67 x 39mm and the large cards are 76 x 58mm.

Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Malayan Industries 1929 Malayan Industries 1929 27 - Carreras had already produced a set in 1928 titled Malayan Scenes (see website for availability), but clearly their fascination with the Malaya was not at an end as in 1929 they issued another set, but this time looking at industries in the region. These interesting black and white photos, backed by plenty of facts, show such things as tapping a rubber tree, sterilising the fruit of oil palms, a banana plant, a coconut estate, pineapple cultivation, transporting pipes using elephants, creping machinery on a rubber estate, betel nut palms, kapok trees which were ideal as they were quick growing and provided fibre for stuffing mattresses etc. and oil for soap, drying rattans to make canes, the transportation of coconut by oxen and boat, milling sugar cane and irrigation for rice planting. In those days most of the processes were hands-on and it is fascinating to see the use of animals and natives at work. Card no. 10 pictures the unusual hats worn by Chinese women labourers in the oil palm industry and we are told that these fringed hats denote their married state. Even by 1929 many of these processes were being mechanised and nowhere is the contrast between the old and the new more obvious than on card no. 9 which shows a bucket dredge at a tin mine, a major advance in mining, but in the foreground a man is crossing a rickety walkway carrying a load on his head. A real snapshot in time and size 69 x 36mm.

Anonymous Tobacco Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Careless Moments (Pin Up Girls) 1922 Careless Moments (Pin Up Girls) 1922 25 - This set of black and white pictures is titled “Careless Moments” on the reverse, but contains no further information. The idea of the set is that women are captured in an unguarded moment either getting dressed or taking a break from work with the result that most are in their underwear and lots of legs and stocking tops are on view. Unlike the explicit images available today these are tastefully done, but still titillating and if you are into stockings this is definitely the set for you! Cards size 70 x 38mm

Gallaher Birds, Butterflies & Moths Butterflies and Moths 1938 Butterflies and Moths 1938 48 - The card fronts contain lovely colour illustrations of the butterflies and moths concerned and the informative backs tell us about their favourite habitat and food as well as describing them and their caterpillars. Included in the set are the Hummingbird Moth which is one of the few which fly during the day, the Painted Lady which is a beautiful summer visitor, the Common Blue, which as its name suggests is the commonest butterfly in the British Isles, the Cinnabar moth which likes open waste ground, the furry Puss Moth, the Orange Tip butterfly which first appears around the middle of May, the Fritillary whose caterpillar is black and spiny and the Death’s Head Moth so named because it appears to have a ‘skull-and-cross-bones’ on its back. Size 63 x 37mm

Foh Chong (China) Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Chinese Series c1930 Chinese Series c1930 M10 - Not being able to read the Chinese characters on the front we can’t tell you much about this set other than the fact that it has pink borders, is numbered in English on the front and appears to show ancient characters from Chinese history or myth with the artwork nicely done in a traditional style. The red printed backs show a building, presumably their headquarters, along with the company name in English and a trade mark. Foh Chong were among a number of Chinese firms producing cigarettes and issuing cards in the 1920-30s period.

Phillips Birds, Butterflies & Moths British Butterflies Transfers 1936 British Butterflies Transfers 1936 25 - These transfers picture in colour butterflies from around the British Isles all set against a black background with their name in the white border at the bottom. The backs give information about the butterfly including such things as size and where it can be found as well as suppling instructions for how to remove the transfer from its backing. We are told to “place the transfer in water for 30 seconds, slide the design off the backing paper on to a white base, squeegee flat and leave to dry”. Frankly these cards are too nice for that sort of treatment and are best enjoyed as they are. Among the butterfly featured are the Swallowtail, Peacock, Large Garden White, Painted Lady, Common Blue, Orange Tip, Silver-Washed Fritillary, Red Admiral, Purple Emperor, Small Tortoiseshell etc. These Transfers were also available in card format with a dark blue or light blue back and were also issued by Abdulla in 1935. Size 67 x 35mm.

Players Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Dandies 1932 Dandies 1932 50 - Player's 1932 set of Dandies holds a special interest for collectors beyond the admirable pictures and texts, because it contains one of the most famous gaffs in cigarette card history. Christopher Clark R.I. was responsible for the artwork, and no doubt was careful to be historically accurate when portraying the characters. Unfortunately when it came to Disraeli (subject no.43) he painted Big Ben in the background. However, the text tells us 'Dizzy' was 22 at the time, so the date was 1826? and Big Ben wasn't built till thirty years later! The error was discovered after the first printing was released and an attempt to remove Big Ben in the second run left a ghostly blur. The third run has a plain background and this is what you will see in our set of the month. Elsewhere in the series we meet Narcissus, Julius Caesar, Richard II, Walter Raleigh, Samuel Pepys, George IV, Beau Brummell and Charles Dickens through to London's Pearly Kings and Queens and World Heavyweight boxing champion James. J. Corbett. Size 68 x 36mm

Churchman Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Eastern Proverbs 1st Series 1931 Eastern Proverbs 1st Series 1931 25 - This charming little set originally issued in 1931, features colourful illustrations of ancient proverbs from the East. The informative backs give us an idea of the meaning and also compares similar sayings from other countries including Britain. For instance the Indian proverb ‘Call on God, but row away from the rocks’ is compared to the Persian ‘Trust in Allah but spread not your prayer-carpet in a wet place and Cromwell’s ‘Trust in God but keep your powder dry’. The meaning of some is obvious just from the pictures and text on the front such as ‘Look at the mother before becoming engaged to the daughter’ however some are more obscure such as ‘Picking up a large stone is a sign it won’t be thrown’ or ‘Look the other way when the girl at the tea house smiles’. A lovely set size 68 x 36mm. The set was also reprinted in 2001,
