Aesop's Fables. W.H. & J. Woods Ltd., Cigarette Manufacturers. Preston. Series of 25. $20 at Noah's Ark, Milwaukee, June, '87. Second set for $13.50 from Colin Fawcett, Wisbech, England, through Ebay, Sept., '01.
This was my first set of cigarette cards. I went on to find a great deal more, including two different renditions of this same set in color, done by Gallaher in 1931 and Anstie in 1934. These cards are in very good condition. The copies here of the earlier colored work are unspectacular. The texts repeat those of the Gallaher original.
