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

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,

Churchman Ships & Shipping The Story of Navigation 1936 The Story of Navigation 1936 50 - When Queen Mary launched the new Cunard liner which bore her name in September 1934 it was like a tonic for a nation emerging from the long years of the depression. The superb vessel marked the latest chapter in a struggle to conquer the sea, a story which had begun thousands of years earlier when primitive man first crossed a river by floating on a log. It was these two extremes which Churchmans chose for the first and last cards in this series. The set continues with a Welsh coracle, a Viking ship and an Elizabethan galleon as well as Nelson’s flagship “Victory” which is now preserved at Portsmouth for all to admire. Also included are the magnificent clipper “Cutty Sark” which is still a major tourist attraction at Greenwich, “S.S. Great Britain” which is permanently on display in Bristol as a lasting tribute to Isambard Kingdom Brunel her talented designer plus great liners of the 20th century such as “Mauretania” which for more than 20 years was the speed queen of the North Atlantic and of course, the “Queen Mary” which is now a tourist attraction at Long Beach, California. You can re-live these great moments in maritime history with this finely produced colour series with plenty of facts on the reverse. These cards are size 67 x 36mm. This set was also reprinted in 1999.

Notaras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Views of China 1925 Views of China 1925 24 - Today’s visitors will have no difficulty recognising some of the country’s famous historic sights such as the Great Wall or Peking’s (Beijing) Forbidden City as these are still very much on the tourist trail, but the street and river scenes below to another age without a skyscraper anywhere and the policeman on point duty in Shanghai looks as if he’s having a quiet time. The backs advertise ‘Silver Car Cigarettes’, but contain no information on the scenes pictured so we only have the caption for explanation. A fascinating glimpse into old China with cards size 69 x 45mm
