This is an ONLY-ENGLISH set. The Liebig Company started editing advertising after 1865 In the begin only spanish and french, soon Flemisch and Italian folowed. After that many countries were provided and many sets of the Liebig company were also edited in English language. Distribution of english language sets was for USA, Great Brittain, colonies and international public in many countries. Collectors were very international at those days, on the contrary what we think now. This set was never editied in another language and we condider it as the first English set, although many were preceding but those were also available in another language. The set was printed on a higher quality of paper and is seldom found in mint quality.
