[Adelaide], Brolga Books, 1970.
Square quarto,  pages plus 27 plates (7 in colour).
Flush-cut card covers slightly foxed on the inside surfaces; essentially a fine copy with the fine colour-pictorial dustwrapper.
This copy is signed on the title page by the author, and signed and dated (1970) by James Cant, under his frontispiece photographic portrait. (The handwriting clearly shows the effects of advanced multiple sclerosis, the disease that had confined Cant to a wheelchair from the mid-1960s.) James Montgomery Cant (1911-1982) was married to fellow-Australian artist, Dora Chapman. Loosely inserted in the book is a small card (130 × 100 mm) printed with a monochrome illustration ('Drawing ... 1963') by him on the recto; it is inscribed on the verso 'Ruth & Mervyn, wishing you a very happy & prosperous New Year. Love, Dora & Jim'. The recipients were fellow-artists Ruth Tuck and Mervyn Smith. A small four-panel catalogue for the James Cant Exhibition at the 1974 Adelaide Festival of Arts is also loosely inserted. [3 items].
