This wash drawing was reproduced as the frontispiece to Dulcie Deamer's 1929 book As It Was in the Beginning which was published by Frank Wilmot, Melbourne in 1929.

Prior to that, the story had won The Lone Hand competition in 1907 and the first chapter was included in The Lone Hand, Vol II dated 1 January 1908. The rest of the story and illustrations were reproduced in later volumes of The Lone Hand. Dulcie Deamer was born in New Zealand and she first moved to King Cross, Sydney in 1923 where she became the grande dame of the Bohemian set. She wrote four plays, eight novels and hundreds of short stories as well as having three books of poems published. She was a great friend of Norman's who illustrated two of her novels. She lived in Kings Cross from 1923 until her death at 81 in 1970. The book is not for sale.
