Frensham Press, [Mittagong, NSW] 1937 - [30]p. Original cloth-backed, patterned boards featuring a lino-cut designed by Dobson with her initials, red paper label title on upper board. Moderate wear to the black cloth spine lacking several pieces but overall a lovely copy. The author's scarce first book restricted to 200 copies and published when she was only 17. Unrecorded by Farmer, Miller/Macartney and The Oxford Companion to Australian Literature and restricted to 200 copies. The Press was established by the Australian children's author Joan Phipson after she visited some private presses in England and consulted Leonard and Virginia Woolf at their Hogarth Press. Leonard Woolf was later to praise Dobson's book as equal to any of the initial efforts by the Hogarth Press. Dobson assisted Phipson in the book's production but was not fond of her first book. Her first commercially published work, In a Convex Mirror, did not appear until 1944. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
