This slim volume of poetry is the rare first book by the highly-regarded Australian poet Rosemary Dobson. It was published when Dobson was just 17 and still a student at the exclusive girls’ school, Frensham, in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. It was printed in an edition of 200 copies on the Frensham Press. The paper used to cover the boards is printed with an original linocut by the author, signed in monogram.
