Handset by Alec Bolton on Basingwerk Parchment this is the fourth book and seventh publication of the Brindabella Press. The work was begun with the "generous collaboration of the author and [was] finished to his memory, Christmas Day 1976." (colophon). On publication most copies were bought by friends of McAuley and for some time this was the most difficult Brindabella Press title for collectors to find. (A Licence to Print, p 23).
