Insect and Butterfly cigarette cards
Insect and Butterfly cigarette cards

Take a stroll in the country on a warm summers day and see the insect life creeping and crawling through the undergrowth and the butterflies drifting by on a warm breeze.
You will not see all the species on the cards below because some are now extinct.
So keep a bit of the past alive forever with these beautiful cards.

Players Butterflies [1932] 50 cards
Although I leave you in no doubt which my favourite Butterfly set is later on this set is actually very highly rated among people that know what they are talking about when it comes to butterflies. It really is a wonderful set of cards.

Players Butterflies & Moths [1904] 50 cards
An early set of cards. Issued by a number of manufacturers but get this one, they are all the same series but this is less expensive than the others. Well illustrated, high quality card. They have stood the passing years very well indeed. This set finds a home in many a collection.

Wills Garden Life [1914] 50 cards
These are creepy crawlies doing their creepy thing. Truly unpleasant but you have to admire the way its done. The same set was done by Lambert & Butler but only as a series of 25 rather than this series which is 50 cards. I don't know why either.

Lambert & Butler Wonders of Nature [1924] 25 cards
A pretty varied set as you would expect given the title. Wonderfully illustrated it reminds me I should make more effort to tell you about Lambert & Butler

Godfrey Phillips British Butterflies [1927] 25 cards
These are all set against a solid black background. I have scanned a reasonably high contrast image here. Some of the butterflies are brown orange combinations which are not exactly scan friendly.

Gallaher Butterflies and Moths [1938] 48 cards
Gallaher does their usual commendable job with this set. Nice to see the butterflies and moths in some sort of context although don't ask me if it is the right one. Sometimes the backgournd can become a little bit too foreground but this is me being fussy after seeing thousands and thousands of cards over the years.

Godfrey Phillips British Butterflies No1 issue [1911] 30 cards
A 30 card series which is rarer than some of the butterflies it depicts. Although not extinct you could wait a long time to collect this entire set if you wanted to capture them in the wild.

Wills British Butterflies [1927] 50 cards
An oddly flat offering by Wills this one. Somehow the artist has left the things rather two dimensional. Still it is a good workman like set perhaps more suited to old text books than cigarette cards mind.

Players British Butterflies (Large) [1934] 25 cards
How many of these sets could I sell on the back of this scan. Well if I scanned the whole lot I'd sell more. This really is a first class set. Beautiful subject matter done beautifully.

Wills, Butterflies and Moths (Large) [1938] 40 cards
Again the large format is wonderful for these cards and Wills get it right with some lively illustrations
