Quarto, xx, 140 pages with numerous black and white illustrations, and colour plates of 50 paintings (often accompanied by an explanatory diagram prepared by Judith Ryan).
Papered boards lightly bumped; an excellent copy with the fine dustwrapper.
Inscribed, dated (19 August 2000) and signed by the author to a significant collector of Aboriginal art. Loosely inserted are two TLSs from Geoffrey Bardon to the collector, retained copies of his replies, and some related ephemera, including the lovely 'Thank You' card issued by the family after Bardon's death in May 2003. The letters are more than routine, and deal in the main with specific matters of Aboriginal art, occasionally touching on personal affairs.
