From the cover: “Ainslie Roberts began to see Australian Aboriginal Myths in terms of colour and design, and the result was the series of paintings first exhibited at the Osborne Art Gallery, Adelaide, in 1963. In order to incorporate the paintings in a book, Mountford wrote a text which explained the background of the myths, accompanied by his interpretation of the myths them- selves. This book, The First Sunrise, contains a further thirty-two new paintings by Ainslie Roberts based on Aboriginal mythology. Charles Mountford has once more written an introduction and his interpretation of the myths.”
