Swaps of Randolph Caldecott postcards?

If we are told about any duplicates of Randolph Caldecott postcards, we will post the information here.  This indicates that the owner is willing to swap the card for another card that he/she does not have.  We are happy to put owners in touch with one another; after that, any negotiations are up to them!

"No.":  Card series and number.  For Warne cards, only applies to original 1914+ edition.

"Publr":  W=Frederick Warne & Co.;  WLtd=Frederick Warne & Co. Ltd.;  V&A=Victoria & Albert Museum;  BM=British Museum;  Dover=Dover Publications, USA.

"Back":  "S" = sepia, "B"=black.  Only applies to 1974+ edition.  Can anyone tell us whether the colour of ink is any indicator of date of publication, or whether some designs always had one colour and others always had the other?

"Condition": 1= pristine; 2=very slight wear at corners / slight marks on back.

Any information shown above is as supplied by the present owner: we can take no responsibility for its accuracy.  In particular, the date of production of any card can only be very approximate as no dates were printed on the early edition of the cards. The later reissue is marked " 1974" but individual cards might be more recent than this.

The postcard illustrated on this page was published by the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.  It shows a water-colour sketch by Randolph Caldecott for his book "A Frog he would a-wooing go" (1883).  It has on its back two numbers: "E.122", and "E.133-1948".  We think it was on sale in the V&A at about the Centenary of the publication of the book, ie 1983.
