Heath Robinson's Great War
The Satirical Cartoons
Best known for his humorous cartoons featuring over-elaborate contraptions, William Heath Robinson published drawings in magazines satirizing the First World War throughout the conflict, among the most popular being his series ‘Inventions Rejected by the Inventions Board’ which included the ingenious ‘Hot-bottler for Warming Highlanders’ Legs after a Night in the Trenches’. This volume reproduces three collections of the best of this work, originally published during the war: Some Frightful War Pictures, Hunlikely! and The Saintly Hun.
Heath Robinson's Golf
Classic Cartoons and Ingenius Contraptions
Heath Robinson’s genius for creating absurd machines to execute unnecessary functions is well suited to the world of golf as the telescopic putter, moveable bunker and curled niblick in these cartoons prove. This collection of his drawings making fun of the royal and ancient game is a reproduction of a volume entitled Humours of Golf, first published in 1923, and retains the original introduction by celebrated golf writer and commentator Bernard Darwin.
