The set is not typical English but the 7th card definetly is only printed in English ! There are more sets of the Liebig Company that have been edited in one language with 6 cards and in other countries with 1, 2 to 6 more cards. Sometimes it is so, for instance with the 30 year war between France and Germany that in France all German-armee cards were left out and changed to cards from other countries arrmy. In this set it is a whole puzzle to know the exact set. Here follows the correct information : The Italian army set miss the RUSSIA card, French set which has no difference however with the Belgian set doen't possess the English ANGLETERRE card, English sets miss the Belgian card, Spanish sets don't have the RUSSIA either. So all editions don't have a seventh card, which means, they have all only six cards ! So no Belgium card in the English set. You can only see the English ANGLETERRE card in the full catalogue; so to see it, click on the picture here-under and the click under the photo on : Show more pictures

  • This study is limited to all sets edited in English language
  • Please note that some of these have never been printed in other languages and therefore do not appear in other catalogues
  • We distinguish 5 ONLY-ENGLISH sets as a first notice
  • then the other ENGLISH-LANGUAGE sets, which appeared also in other languages
  • So will list all those which appeared in the UK, Canada and U.S.A. including LEMCO and OXO

This study, my notes started in 1958, continued and on the internet from 1997 until 2003. This new initiative starts 1-1-2004 and has a planning for 5 years
