Bear Dinkum, Curtis, Neil
2 Curtis, Neil Bear Dinkum
Balgowlah, NSW Boobook 1980 0908121032 / 9780908121038 First Paperback Good Small Quarto Neil Curtis 
Very light general and edgewear to illustrated covers. Upper corner bumped, leaving shallow creases to all upper page corners. Cover is just beginning to come unstuck from the text block (easily repaired, probably). Internally bright and clean. I think this is satire. Certainly not a children's book. "I predict this book will eclipse Princess Tiara ballet books for years to come; that it will inspire choreographers throughout the land to make more use of our natural Australian talent. Bearavo!" -- Graeme Murphy, Artistic Director, Sydney Dance Company.
