A History of the Book in Australia, 1891-1945 : A National Culture in a Colonised Market
The first of a series of studies of Australian book production and consumption. The work is organised into four sections: 'Publishing and Printing', 'Bookshops and Libraries' (including histories of small and specialised libraries), 'Genres and Their Place in the Market' and 'Reading' (including accounts of reading groups and societies). Within each grouping are chapters on related subjects, in some cases accompanied by illustrative case studies.
