Australian Short Stories

Selected by Walter Murdoch and H. Drake-Brockman

Oxford University Press, 1963, hardcover, dust-jacket 

Very Good Condition, minor edge and shelf wear, price-clipped dust-jacket shows a little edge and shelf wear with a little rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, a little soiling in spots (see photographs)

"More than one classic novel has been added by Australia to the literature of the English-speaking world, and this anthology shows how fertile her writers have been, also, in the production of short stories.  No fewer than forty-eight authors are represented, with one or more complete stories each.  Henry Handel Richardson and Katharine Susannah Prichard are among those whose work has already reached a large public far beyond Australia itself, and readers in many lands will find in the present volume further evidence of a growing creative literature in the Commonwealth.  The earliest story included dates from c.1894 and the latest from c.1956."
