Valentine & Sons

Valentine & Sons Ltd were better known for their postcards, but they also published a number of small books in the early 1900s.  Here is a list of the other Valentine books that I know of.

The Book

Here is the cover of one of the books in Valentine's Do You Know? series.  This book holds pictures of 24 cars, laid out 3 to a page, with a brief description of each.

Here are two more pictures of the book.

Published When?

Thank you to Bryan Norfolk, a collector of cigarette and trade cards that feature the Austin Seven motor car of the 1920s/30s, for sending me the photos above.

Brian estimates that this book would have been published around 1926/27.  One of the cars in the book is a Rolls Royce 'New Phantom' that was introduced in 1925.  If you can provide a more accurate date for when this book might have been published, please email me.

Thank you.    -  Peter Stubbs:  January 31, 2009
