Clyde School was a prestigious girls’ school founded in St Kilda in 1910 and relocating to Mt Macedon in 1919. Notable alumni include Elisabeth Murdoch, philanthropist; Peggy Glanville-Hicks, composer; Joan Lindsay, author; Mary Turner Shaw, architect and Veronica Seton-Williams, archaeologist. The school closed in 1976 when it amalgamated with Geelong Grammar.

A very rare book of original linocuts printed no doubt in very small numbers by the girls themselves in Woodend.

A single example recorded in Australian collections (State Library of Victoria).
