Description:
Imperfect: three cards wanting (the nurse card, the perambulator card, the eye glass card).
Title supplied by cataloger.
A game consisting of 30 cards in groups of five cards each; object of the game appears to be to collect as many complete groups as possible.
The five cards in each group have the same "wants" caption but four of the cards depict the individual objects wanted and the fifth depicts all the objects together with the person who wants them. Thus, the group with the caption, "A lady going for a walk wants boots, bonnet, mantle and parasol," will consist of one boots card, one bonnet card, one mantle card, one parasol card and, finally, one card showing the lady and all the items she wants.
Printed in red, blue and/or black.
Versos of cards are blank.
