Carreras A Special Offer of £2, £3 and £5 Sets Military Uniforms 1976 Military Uniforms 1976 50 - This set takes a look at British uniforms from 1860 to 1960 and provides a historical record of the changing times in the armed services. We see how breeches give way to trousers and the ornate braiding, gold edging and lace are gradually pared down. The set starts with a Musketeer of the King’s Royal Regiment of Guards in 1660 with his blue breeches and red gaiters and continues with an officer of the First Regiment of Foot Guards 1685, a Garde Te Voet in stunning blue and gold uniform who accompanied William of Orange when he succeeded to the British throne, a Private of the Grenadier Company 1791, a Sergeant of the Coldstream Regiment of Foot from the time of the American Revolutionary Wars, an 1812 Foot Guards Ensign carrying the regimental colour, a Light Company Officer of the Scots Fusilier Guards 1846, Coldstream Guards Drummer, a Grenadier Guards Pioneer of 1853 portrayed with apron and axe, 1853 Bandsman etc. Also included is a 1925 Subaltern wearing “plus fours” and puttees which had been adopted in the First World War, battle dress from 1950, kilts of the Irish and Scots Guards and No. 1 Dress of the Coldstream Guards of 1960. Good pictures with informative text on the reverse. An album was also issued to accompany this set. Size 69 x 36mm

Players Birds, Butterflies & Moths Birds and Their Young 2nd Series (unissued) 1955 Birds and Their Young 2nd Series (unissued) 1955 25 - In 1955 Players prepared two sets of 25 cards for issue. The pictures and text for both these sets was taken from the 1937 set of the same name, but split into two sets of 25 and unlike the original issue these did not have adhesive backs or the album advert. We love the pictures in this second set showing a Mute Swan and cygnets, the Starling feeding its chick from a bowl, the adorably fluffy chicks of the Redshank, a Greenfinch who looks like he has had enough of his greedy chicks and the Bullfinches using teamwork to keep their chicks fed. A delightful set with cards size 66 x 36mm.

Carreras Fish, Fishing & the Ocean Sport Fish 1978 Sport Fish 1978 50 - This is set an angler’s dream as it not only contains rather good colour pictures of fish that can be caught in an around the British Isles, but the text on the back gives you helpful hints on when and where to find them, what sort of bait to use, the average weight, markings and habits. For instance we are told that the Porbeagle Shark averages 100lb and is an ideal quarry for big fish hunters. It can be found between June and October off the Isle of Wight, West Country and coast of Ireland, but you will need a heavy shark rod and 120lb line to go after this beauty. There are plenty of more common examples from our rivers and seas including Dace, Roach, Chub, Common Carp, Tench, Catfish, Perch, Eel, Pike, Trout (both Rainbow, Sea and Brown), Salmon, Dab, Flounder, Turbot, Mackerel, Common Skate, Pollack, Ling, Bass etc. Catching all of these would be quite a challenge and respect to any who have achieved this, but this set is not just for anglers as the detailed pictures are also worth adding to any collection, especially if you are a nature lover. Size 70 x 35mm. A special album to contain this set was also issued – see website for availability

Fax Pax Miscellaneous Trade Cards Fables 1988 (1995 redesign presentation box) Fables 1988 (1995 redesign presentation box) L36 - This set of 36 cards with rounded corners feature modern translations of well-known fables, mainly Aesop’s classics, charmingly illustrated by Gesine Mahoney. The pastel pictures are beautifully drawn and the backs tell the fable and give the moral at the bottom. For instance The Dog and his Bone shows the dog and his reflection in the water and the back tells the tale with the moral at the end explained i.e. If you are too greedy you may end up with nothing. I must admit I had not heard of some of these like the Pedler and the Donkey or the Dog in the Manger, but it’s a fascinating set beautifully drawn. Size 102 x 64mm
