        Tides of sensuality (deluxe edition)

      Working drawings and studies for a major work to be titled Bumbooziana by Donald Friend. Foreword by Elizabeth Summons. Melbourne: Gryphon Books, 1978. Quarto, gilt-decorated red cloth in black dustjacket, illustrated throughout with Friend's sketches in preparation for Bumbooziana. Limited to 350 copies signed by the artist, this is one of the 100 copies of the deluxe edition (this is copy no. 5) with an original signed drawing from the Bumbooziana series; light flecking to top-edge, otherwise a fine copy. Friend had a prickly relationship with publishers, especially the roguish Richard Griffin, with whom he produced the grand opus Bumbooziana, for which this work Tides of Sensuality is a prelude. While discussing details of publishing the elephant folio of grand erotica (Diaries, Vol. 3, p. 462), Donald Friend brought some preliminary drawings for Bumbooziana to show Richard Griffin on 19 September 1978. 'Richard proposed publishing them very quickly - before Christmas - under a title we concocted, Tides of Sensuality' (p. 462). It must have been quick indeed for on November 8th Friend records his thoughts the night of the book's launch at the bookshop of Margareta Webber: 'It is very elegant and beautifully produced. Richard and everyone concerned have done a marvellous book' (p. 464). The success of Tides of Sensuality reinforced Friend's commitment to produce Bumbooziana with Griffin, which would prove to be one of the highlights in Australian publishing of the twentieth century.
