    DescriptionIn "Britain at Play" we collect the finest of William Heath Robinson's studies of the unique British character. Here we find Britain in the garden, at the beach and on the golf course - the 9th hole played with the grim reaper, rotating sunbathing machines, a double cross tennis match 'For economising space in local tournaments and generally gingering up the game'. Heath Robinson perfectly captures the peculiar character of the great British nation at leisure.
