John Lewis covers Heath Robinson's serious illustrations and his comic drawings and discusses with humour and understanding the influences that formed his art. The book is lavishly illustrated with line drawings, half-tones and colour plates. It outlines Heath Robinson's life and in its detailed analysis of his work should prove invaluable to anyone interested in graphic art as well as to the book collector. . . ."

In original pictorial dust jacket; edges lightly age-toned. Interior generally bright; half-title and title-page lightly foxed. Very good. (Inventory #: 38552)
