First edition of the first novel by the only Australian to have won the Nobel Prize for Literature. White did not allow the novel to be republished during his lifetime, fearing libel from the family whose story he had appropriated.

Octavo. Original orange cloth, titles to spine blue. With the dust jacket. Housed in a dark blue cloth flat back box. Gift inscription to front free endpaper. Spine rolled, a little foxing to edges. An excellent copy in the jacket with short closed tear to fold of front flap, and some minor nicks to tips.
