Poetry was the main concern of Basil Dowling, a friend of Charles Brasch’s and James K. Baxter. Hatherley, a collection of poems that hark back to Dowling’s boyhood in Canterbury during the 1920s and 30s, was printed by students of the Bibliography class of 1968. It is a tidy production with a wrap-around blue card cover.
