Illustrated card covers, some very light shelfwear but otherwise Fine condition, slightly oversize catalogue page to front end. First edition, pp 163, colour and b&w illustrations throughout. This 2011 comprehensive catalogue, which accompanied a selling exhibition, explores this aspect of Heath Robinson's achievement with breadth and imagination - placing his ingenious cartoons in the context of his work of an illustrator, with which he even rivalled Arthur Rackham. Heath Robinson's cartoons reflect a very English response to progress, and particularly the technological developments of the early twentieth century, in both war and peace. Very Scarce Title.
