Description: Nottingham, John Player & Sons, N.d. Complete series of 25 colour cigarette cards. Each is captioned, numbered, and with extended explanatory text on verso. Placed in pockets in 3 clear plastic sheets. In a very good condition. ¶ ~ First edition of this rare series. One of the earliest Player's card series, (ca. 1910). The beautifull cards were printed in chromolithography, a process which yielded a much more delicate result than later, mechanical processes. Complete series of this work, comprising of unused, unglued cards which are preserved entirely in the original state, are very scarce.
