About This Item

[Adelaide]: Brolga Books, 1970. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. [Adelaide], Brolga Books, 1970. Square quarto, [18] pages plus 27 plates (7 in colour). Cloth very slightly marked; an excellent copy with the slightly used dustwrapper. This copy is signed and dated (10 April 1970) by the artist under his frontispiece portrait; the handwriting clearly shows the effects of advanced multiple sclerosis, the disease that had confined Cant to a wheelchair from the mid-1960s. He died in 1983 at the age of 71. It is also signed on the title page by Elizabeth Young, the second daughter of John Young of Macquarie Galleries fame (she published her later books under her married name, Jean [Elizabeth] Campbell). Her husband was the artist and arts administrator Robert Campbell.
