"Britain at Play is a must-have collection of spectacular and hilarious drawings by the celebrated illustrator William Heath Robinson. Though he became famous as 'The Gadget King' for his humorous pictures of ingenious and improbable contraptions (featuring steam kettles, candles and lengths of knotted string), Robinson's mechanical devices were only part of his huge and wide-ranging output. His work for such publications as The Tatler, The Sketch, The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News and The Bystander features the British at play in the home and outside it, indulging in outlandish sports, going to extraordinary lengths to hunt down an elusive prey, or finding opportunities for romance in surprising circumstances. Now these stunning illustrations are presented together for the very first time." "Here we find Britain in the garden, at the beach and on the golf course. We find distinguished gentlemen playing aquatic golf, fish squash or mountain cricket, gathering edelweiss, trapping whelks and catching tigers - or perhaps indulging in some Jazz-tennis. We find automobile disasters ('cartastrophes') aplenty, and bizarre acts of kindness by well-meaning boy scouts. We find city commuters sprinting across sand dunes, ladies reading whilst waltzing, lovers stealing a bus-top kiss in the midst of a traffic jam."--BOOK JACKET.

From the creator of the popular A.Word.A.Day e-mail newsletter A collection of some of the most interesting stories and fascinating origins behind more than 300 words, names, and terms by the founder of WordSmith.org. Did you know: There’s a word for the pleasant smell that accompanies the first rain after a dry spell? Petrichor, combining petros (Greek for stone) and ichor (the fluid that flows in the veins of Greek gods). An illeist is one who refers to oneself in the third person. There’s a word for feigning lack of interest in something while actually desiring it: accismus. For any aspiring deipnosophist (a good conversationalist at meals) or devoted Philomath (a lover of learning), this anthology of entertaining etymology is an ideal way to have fun while getting smarter.
