Notes

Publisher's special version limited to 25 signed copies on hot press pure rag 190 gsm paper with the text screen printed. Bound in full goat skin within a clam shell box by binder Paul Schubert.

The seven tipped in etchings are intaglio impressons and hand coloured according to Pro Hart's direction and signed by him.

The essay constitutes original research on the story of Waltzing Matilda and the social and political context of the story. It researches the powerful union movement, the shearers' strikes and the social circumstance of the squatters in regional New South Wales and how these influenced Lawson's writings and the naive artworks of Pro Hart. It synthesises the writer's and artist's perspectives on this period of Australian history and contributes new original material to the narrative of Waltzing Matilda.

First published 1995.
