#19 of 230 copies, signed by the printer/publisher Alec Bolton. Tall 8vo. 44pp. Black cloth with mylar dustwrapper. A nice clean copy in fine condition. Loosely inserted is the small card from McAuley's funeral (he died 15 October 1976), with an inscription on its rear from the poet's wife, presenting the book to a fellow UTas academic. *** The seventh publication of Alec Bolton's Brindabella Press / Officina Brindabella (the latter title used between 1985 and 1992). 'Published after our old friend's death... Many copies were bought by his friends, and few have come onto the market - this is one of the hardest Brindabella books for collectors to find' (Alec Bolton, in Michael Richards: A Licence to Print, p23). Apparently 40 of the 230 were destroyed while printing (publisher's annotation on copy sold at Australian Book Auctions in 2007).
