A discussion of the peculiar, slow nova Delphini 1967 is given, based on a large amount of data obtained in Victoria. A summary of the important changes in the spectrum is given, and consideration of the line profiles and line velocity curves leads to the conclusion that the photosphere attained a diameter in excess of 109 km for an extended period of time. After June 1968 no further matter was ejected and collapse of the photosphere left an auroral type spectrum with complex structure in its emission lines.
