Waltzing Matilda

A Background to Australia

by Arnold L. Haskell

The Diggers’ Edition

Adam & Charles Black, 1943, [Fifth (Diggers’) Edition], black and white photographic plates, black and white photographic frontispiece, hardcover, dustjacket

Very Good Condition, a little edge and shelf wear, a little rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, minor foxing to front endpaper, no inscriptions, dustjacket shows some edge and shelf wear with some rubbing, bumping, chipping, creasing and tears, part missing at front top (see photographs)

“This is a wartime, battle-dressed edition of Arnold Haskell’s famous book about modern Australia.  With a new preface, it contains the same number of words, pages and illustrations as the previous bulkier edition.
On his first visit to Australia the author promptly fell in love with that as yet little understood continent and made it his business to discover it for himself.  This is the fascinating and intensely personal record of that discovery.”
