The folder is foxed, as is the Noel Counihan cover image, though the latter lightly and mainly at the edges. The introductory sheet is stained at the head, this has seeped though the blank verso and again underneath the title. It is obviously there but not shatteringly obnoxious. A scan is available on request. The list of prints and the prints themselves are in fine condition. A nice set. "A portfolio of four unbound sheets of letterpress and fourteen linocuts produced by ten artists from the left wing Melbourne collective sympathetic to the unionist sentiments of the Ballarat miners. The cover has a tipped-on original Noel Counihan linocut printed in light blue ink. It is known that one (or more?) copies were issued with an additional proof linocut of The sentry by Maurice Carter, printed in umber. The portfolio was produced in an edition of 500 copies, priced at 7/6. 1. Peter Lalor (silk screen) / by Ray Wenban 2. ‘‘Joe! Joe! The traps are coming” / by Noel Counihan 3.
