Notes: This set contains 100 cards, but they are divided into three groups as follows:

The cards from this set were released in two different sizes. All the cards can be found in either size.

According to German collector Nick Bolton, albums were issued in various versions and sizes. In some, the cards are meant to be glued, in others they can be slotted in. No text in the albums, so they could be used for all issues. The smoking bulldog on the front of the album, and on the back of all Casanova cards, is an iconic image designed by famous artist Ludwig Hohlwein in 1914.

Date info: The film "Ein Walzertraum" was released in the last few days of 1925, so this set was likely a 1926 issue. According to Ralf Wierz, the company Casanova went out of business in 1928.

Thanks to Ralf Wierz and Nick Bolton for helping with this checklist.
