Miegunyah Press Series takes its name from Miegunyah, the home of Lady Mab and Sir Russell Grimwade; it was made possible by bequests under their wills.
The Grimwade bequest enabled MUP to publish eighteen Miegunyah Press titles between 1967 and 1994. The list is strong in Australian history, maritime history, natural history and biography. (Adapted from the publisher's website: http://www.mup.unimelb.edu.au/Miegunyah.html)

Carlton:Melbourne University Press,1992Z3688101992single work bibliography While it covers the same period (1788-1972) as Muir's two-volume bibliography, published in 1970 and 1976, this work is described by the author as 'not just an updated edition' of the earlier work. It involved an 'integration and revision' of the two original volumes as well as the incorporation of new material. Muir worked in close co-operation with Kerry White, author of the companion volume, Australian Children's Books : A Bibliography : Volume Two 1973-1988, ensuring a 'common process of arrangement, description, and so on' and a uniformity of 'standards, methods and definitions.
