This is the first illustrated edition of the diaries kept by Australian-born photographer and film maker Frank Hurley about his work on the Mawson and Shackleton Antarctic Expeditions, his two expeditions to Papua in the 1920s, and his experiences during the First and Second World Wars. While Hurley is best known today as a photographer and film maker, there is another source, so far little known to the public, which also gives us a startling sense of the presence of the past – his voluminous manuscript diaries, which have survived years of world travel and are now carefully preserved in the archives of the National Library of Australia in Canberra and the Mitchell Library in Sydney. This illustrated edition of his diaries presents Frank Hurley in his own words, explores his testimony to these significant events, and reviews the part he played in imagining them for an international public.

While the European, English, and American literary traditions are justly celebrated, Australia's literary landscape has long been neglected. This richly illustrated book puts Australia in its place on the literary map, discussing writers past and present in all genres of popular and serious fiction and nonfiction; notable publishers and booksellers; literary gathering places; artists who wrote or whose work influenced writing; and patrons of literature.

This is both an index and a survey of Australian writing from 1789 to 1988, supplementing and expanding Grahame Johnston's original compilation published in 1970. The editors have interpreted literature in a broad sense, including such genres as history, biography, bibliography, correspondence, autobiography, and travel writing as well as poetry, fiction, and drama. Although the listings are necessarily selective, many new titles for the period covered by Johnston's edition have been added.
