TitrePresentation of Liebig

The presentation of Liebig (that which is written on the reverse of the cards):

The Leibig Company is the oldest and most powerful entreprise in the world, concerning the rearing of cattle. Its factories are situated in South America (Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay) and in South West Africa where it posesses enourmous terrains, which provide grazing ground for it's herds.

The series of cards:

The production of cards by Leibig started in 1872. Each was made up of 6 or of 12 cards. The series finished in 1939, but new publications were made up until 1973. There were more than 1 800 series, edited in multiple languages: French, English, Italian, German... The society was taken over by Brooke Bond Tea who, it would seem, contined to publish the cards.
The back of the cards were used for publicity, but equally commented on the scene depicted on the front.
