The Dawn of Time

Australian Aboriginal Myths in Paintings

Paintings by Ainslie Roberts

Text by Charles P. Mountford

Rigby, 1969 [First Edition], colour plates, black and white illustrations, hardcover with embossed illustration on front, dust-jacket

Very Good Condition, some edge and shelf wear, some rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, front fly-leaf removed, tape residue to front and back end-papers, price-clipped dust-jacket shows some edge and shelf wear with rubbing, bumping, chips and small tears to edges, residue to repair at back (see photographs)

"A selection from this exhibition, together with others painted at various times, is reproduced in The Dawn of Time, once more accompanied by myths interpreted by Mr Mountford.  In this book, all the paintings are reproduced in full colour, with black and white drawings which also illustrate the myths.  The result is an even more attractive book than The Dreamtime, and like its predecessor it is a unique contribution to Australian art and literature and a genuine record of Aboriginal mythology."
