British American Tobacco (without firms name) Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Characters From The Works of Charles Dickens (38 different cards from the set of 40 minus Nos. 33 & 39) 1919 Characters From The Works of Charles Dickens (38 different cards from the set of 40 minus Nos. 33 & 39) 1919 38 out of 40 - The novels of Charles Dickens have proved enduring classics often reproduced on TV or film and this set pictures some of the best-known characters in colour caricatures set against a light green background. Included are Mr Bumble the beadle and the brutal Bill Sykes and child criminal The Artful Dodger from ‘Oliver Twist’, Sydney Carton the hero of ‘A Tale of Two Cities’, Nicholas Nickleby who was the lead character in one of Dickens’ most successful novels, the eccentric Mr. Pickwick, Martin Chuzzlewit who’s adventures in America apparently offended readers from that nation, David Copperfield who was apparently the favourite character of Charles Dickens, the tragic Little Nell, Captain Cuttle from ‘Dombey and Son’, Barnaby Rudge and the every cheerful Mr. Micawber who was apparently based on Dickens’ own father. In all there are 38 cards as numbers 33 and 39 are not available. Delightful pictures which the author would surely recognize backed by informative text and card size 68 x 36mm – what more could you want.

Gallaher Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Aesops Fables inscribed A Series of 50 (1931) Aesops Fables inscribed A Series of 50 (1931) 25 - Although there are only twenty-five cards, the set is captioned on the backs "Series of 50". We don't know the explanation, but the fact remains this is a remarkably good set with superb illustrations with the fable related on the back, followed by the moral ? such as 'A friend in need is a friend indeed', 'Don't count your chickens before they are hatched', 'One's meat is another's poison', Necessity is the mother of invention', 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder', and so on. The following are particularly apt for the politics of the recent past ? 'In good times remember that bad times may come', 'Changes are not always for the best' and 'The greedy often overreach themselves'. We will leave you to draw your own conclusions as to whom those morals apply! Amazingly, Aesop's fables date back to the 6th century BC, but their morals are timeless. Size 67 x 36mm Note The same series was also issued inscribed Series of 25

Wix Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Builders of Empire 1937 Builders of Empire 1937 50 - Issued in 1937 at a time when parts of the British Empire such as India and South Africa were already calling for independence this set looks at the royalty, statesmen, warriors and explorers who had carved their names in history and provided the foundations for that empire. Originally issued in packets of Kensitas cigarettes which are described on the back as “the mild cigarette – just what the doctor ordered” these contain excellent colour pictures of figures such as Lord Kitchener, David Livingstone, King George V, Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington, author Rudyard Kipling who was nicknamed “Poet of the Empire”, Sir Francis Drake, Florence Nightingale etc. Obviously times change and some of those included are now notorious like Cecil Rhodes, but also included are some we had never heard of such as Sir Eyre Coote who defended Southern India against the French or Baroness Burdett-Coutts who lived from 1814 to 1906 devoting her life to practical philanthropy and overseas missionary work. The pictures are backed by an informative text making this a must for any collection. Cards size 70 x 40mm.

Morris Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Captain Blood 1937 Captain Blood 1937 25 - The colour pictures are based on the 1935 pirate film which starred Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland, and the 1922 novel by Rafael Sabatini. In this tale a doctor during the reign of King James II is wrongly convicted of treason and sentenced to slavery in the West Indies. He becomes the property of Arabella with whom he is in love, but when the crew of a Spanish privateer attack Port Royal Blood he and his companions, after making sure Arabella is safe, manage to capture the ship and become pirates. After the attack Arabella is sent by her uncle to England, but three years later returns on the same ship as the Royal Emissary Lord Willoughby. By a quirk of fate Arabella and the Emissary are rescued by Captain Blood from another pirate, but in trying to return them to Port Royal they find the settlement under attack from French frigates. Blood is offered a pardon if he will defend the port and he tricks the French with false colours. In the bitter hand-to-hand battle which follows he loses his ship, but the French are defeated and Port Royal saved. He is awarded the governorship of the settlement and at last gets to marry Arabella. The cards are a mixture of vertical and horizontal pictures and the numbered backs give plenty of detail concerning the story. Size 67 x 36mm

Cope Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Castles 1939 Castles 1939 25 - The Liverpool firm of Cope Bros. was founded in 1842 (taking over Richard Lloyd of London in 1902) and from 1897 to 1917 produced series after series of high quality cards. They resumed issuing cards in 1923 and continued right through until after the outbreak of World War II. The last of these, Castles, under the joint Cope Bros./Lloyd name, came out in January 1940 and almost immediately afterwards the L.C.C.C. received a letter from the Secretary of Copes stating “the circulation of cigarette cards has not ceased” although was we now know they did not issue any other cards. These cards are printed in a brown colour and varnished to resemble photographs. Maxstoke, Donnington, Tantallon, Newark and Lowther are among the lesser known castles, but the set also includes the Tower of London, Windsor, Balmoral, Warwick, Conway, Corfe, Arundel, Edinburgh, Stirling etc. Among the interesting facts on the reverse are that spies were executed in the Tower during the First World War and that the Earl of Leicester entertained Queen Elizabeth I at his Kenilworth castle for 17 days at the expense of £1,000 a day. The set encapsulates wonderful episodes from Britain’s history and the cards are size 68 x 38mm.

Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Famous Escapes 1926 Famous Escapes 1926 EL10 - This is a novel subject for a set which, as the title suggests, looks at some of the great escapes in history. Among the escapees in this set are Napoleon III who escaped imprisonment by dressing as a workman, Bonnie Prince Charlie who hid in a robber’s cave, Charles II who evaded capture by hiding in an oak tree, Scottish smuggler Robertson who fought his way free, resourceful thief Jack Sheppard who is pictured on his second escape from Newgate Jail and also an earlier escape from Round House with Bess Lion, William Seymour who escaped from the Tower of London, Queen Matilda who fled capture through the snow, Swiss archer William Tell who took advantage of stormy conditions in a boat to escape his guards and Winston Churchill who escaped from Pretoria during the war in South Africa and hid on a train under sacks of wool for two days until he reached safety. The cards contain colour illustrations of the action with details given on the numbered backs. Carreras also produced two other sizes of Famous Escapes, a small and a large size, but these have additional cards as they are sets of 25 each. Please note that due to the glaze-coating of these cards they are slightly concave. That said this is an excellent set and well worth adding to any collection with cards size 133 x 70mm.

Wix Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Henry 5th Series 1936 Henry 5th Series 1936 L50 - Kensitas cigarettes, produced by J Wix & Sons, were one of the top brands for many years, helped no doubt by their innovative promotions. In 1935 they began issuing cards featuring the antics of a mischievous boy called Henry who was the invention of well-known American strip cartoonist Carl Anderson. Each colour picture was a complete episode in Henry’s life as he gets himself embroiled in some hilarious situations. Over an eightee- month period Wix produced five different series of fifty Henry cards, with this 5th series from 1936 being their last. The backs bear some outrageous claims, including “Kensitas – your throat protection against irritation.”. These charming colour pictures are sure to raise a smile. Cards size 78 x 65mm.

Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Notable MPs 1929 Notable MPs 1929 M50 - Living as we do in the world’s oldest democracy, the British people seem to enjoy a love/hate relationship with their members of parliament. Whether things were the same back in 1929, we don’t know, but Carreras series of 50 Notable MPs certainly included some controversial characters, not least of which was Winston Spencer Churchill, at that time Chancellor of the Exchequer who had already led a chequered career in and out of politics. Among Members locking horns with “Winnie” were three former Prime Ministers, David Lloyd George, Stanley Baldwin and Ramsay MacDonald and a Prime Minister to be, Neville Chamberlain, plus the first woman MP Nancy, Viscountess Astor, all under the gimlet gaze of the Speaker of the House, Captain Fitzroy. Terrific caricatures with excellent descriptions. Size 70 x 60mm. This set was also issued as a standard size set.

Wills Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Overseas Dominions Canada 1914 Overseas Dominions Canada 1914 50 - These cards show the major Canadian industries of the time such as logging, farming, fishing and producing maple syrup as well as major cities, beautiful views, buildings ranging from humble backwoods cabins to government offices and even a picture of an ice-boat sailing on the frozen St. Lawrence River. I am sure much of the stunning countryside including the Rockies has hardly changed, but interestingly even in 1914 the cards described the Rockies as being largely unexplored and mapped. The numbered backs are full of fascinating information and these interesting and colourful cards are worth a place in anyone’s collection. Size 68 x 36mm.

Rothmans Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Punch Jokes 1935 Punch Jokes 1935 50 - These are described on the back as real photographs reproduced from original drawings from ‘Punch’ by the special authority of this world famous Journal. One was available with each pack of 10 Rothman’s Pall Mall Virginia cigarettes. The delightful snapshots of life from the between-the-wars era can still raise a chuckle - especially such gems as the old man reading his paper who remarks to his wife “I see that in London a man is run over every half-hour” and she replies “Poor fellow!” or the boy brushing his tiny sibling’s face with a broom who when asked what he is doing replies “I’m only getting baby used to kissing grandpa when he comes to stay.

Woods Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Romance of the Royal Mail 1935 Romance of the Royal Mail 1935 25 - This set covers the history of the postal service from the mounted relays of the 15th century, via letter-carriers and mail coaches of the 18th century (the first of which ran from Bristol to London in 17 hours on August 2nd 1784), early mail trains of the 1830s, postcards which were first used in the 1870s, early mail vans which began service in 1898, the first airmail in 1911, a Great War field post office and 1930s sorting machinery through to the Post Office which never closes in London’s Leicester Square. In this history of the postal service in this country there are a couple of unusual inclusions such as Thomas Waghorn and the Indian Mail and mail delivery in the Tonga Islands where apparently mail is sealed in petrol tins and thrown in the Pacific for natives to swim out and collect! The charming and distinctive colour artwork is backed by plenty of text and the cards are size 64 x 38mm.
