The Kinecar by William Heath Robinson

Double page illustration by William Heath Robinson (1872-1944) showing a well-equipped omnibus transporting passengers while they watch a film. The caption reads, a luxurious vehicle fitted with many devices for the comfort of passengers returning home on a winter's evening, an interesting (and true) forecast for the future of travel. Robinson was a regular contributor to the Sketch, the Bystander and other ILN titles during his lifetime. His weekly drawings featuring mind-boggling contraptions and designs were immensely popular.

Signing the Treaty of Peace at Vienaa [sic]

Signing the Treaty of Peace at Vienaa [sic]. Coloured aquatint by J C Stadler after William Heath, published by Thomas Tegg, 1 April 1818. Wellington, with heads of state of Austria, Prussia and Russia. Illustration for a narrative poem by Dr Syntax, 1818. The Duke of Wellington signs the treaty, which was aimed at redrawing the continent's political map after the defeat of Napoleonic France. Across from him sits Tsar Alexander of Russia with King Frederick of Prussia standing to the Tsar?s right. Behind the table stands Marshal Blucher. The treaty was signed on 30 May 1814 and restored the Bourbon monarchy to the French throne and withdrew the nation?s borders to their 1792 locations. The treaty was hugely unpopular in France and helped mobilise support behind Napoleon on his return from exile and resumption of power in March 1815. Date: 1814

A (Y)appy Idea! by William Heath Robinson, WWI rationing

The Ventrimetric System: Rational weights and measures for use in hotels, restaurants, and clubs for the limitation of appetites. One contraption restricts the diner by measuring his expanding waistline, while another, rather embarrassing solution, is to parp a warning once a diner exceeds a certain weight. A humorous comment on the introduction of rationing in Britain during the First World War. The title of the cartoon is a kit on the name of Arthur Yapp. Sir Arthur Yapp (1869-1936) was Deputy President of the YMCA and Director of Food Economy during the First World War. Date: 1917
