The book in the writer’s collection is missing the rear cover. It is made up of a number of individual sheets of paper stapled together with the text on the recto side of the page only.

There is no title-page and the above scanned imaged is from the front cover. A typewriter (desktop publishing was unknown in 1973) has been used for the text, whilst the music and pictures are all hand drawn. It was privately published in Australia.
