Multum in Parvo Company of 7 Water Lane, Ludgate Hill, London, was founded by descendents of Mullord Brothers in 1884.
The company published a range of indoor games until 1927, which were supplied wholesale.
However, they were not all card games:
Birds, Beasts and Fishes,
The Bogie Man, The Castle, Chameleon,
The Dockyard or Ship Building at Home,
Grand Prize, Happy Golliwog, Invasion, Judge & Jury,
Koker-Nut Shy, Lifeboats,
Merry Families, Money Matters, Music, Musical Dominoes,
Our Fleet, The Poets’ Conversation Cards,
Rabbits!, The Rescue, The Roaring Lion, Shop, Shute, Simple Games for Simple Folk,
The Soccer Game, Speculation, Stock Exchange,
Tennis, Tommy's Wedding, Touring, Turnover, The Walk to Brighton,
Word Making & Word Taking.
Most games sold for between 6d and one shilling, but miniature packs of playing cards, one penny.
Several of the card games shown below contain the same images, repurposed to fit a different game format, particularly the Merry Families and Snap characters.
For example, the same animal caricatures are seen in “Birds, Beasts and Fishes”, “Consil” and “The Improved Game of Snap”.
