Edition Notes: 10 printed; 3 in France. Editions incomplete. Some images have only 1-3 copies. Further printing of plates impossible due to corrosion of plates, damage or lost plates. Those done in France are unable to be printed in Australia, due to the lack of technical skill. The closure of Lacouriere Print Studio and the high cost of printing, especially the colour plates, was a factor for the small editions.
