***All volumes are now out-of-print. This is the most important single work of Australian historical and bibliographical reference, containing about 20,000 entries, and despite the now-accumulated substantial number of errors and omissions, a remarkable achievement and probably one of the best and most detailed national bibliographies in existence. #43350
