'I started working for Angus & Robertson in my university days, around 1927. At that time they were booksellers, publishers and printers, but I worked part-time in the bookselling side. After I took my degree I became full-time, working for some years in various departments of the bookshop at 89 Castlereagh Street. I also worked at Halstead Press, the company's printing arm, where I learned typesetting on a linotype machine. Later on in the 1930s I joined the publishing side.' (Introduction, 10)

1 y separately published work icon Spheres of Influence: Angus and Robertson and Australian Literature from the Thirties to the Sixties Neil James , Sydney : 2001 Z1297347 2001 single work thesis This thesis analyses how literary institutions buttressed the qualitative improvements made in Australian literature between the 1930s and 1960s. It demonstrates that a professional Australian book publishing industry first emerged as a result of the Second World War, dramatically increasing publishing opportunities for Australian writers.When the extraordinary wartime conditions dissipated, a handful of key institutions maintained an improved status for Australian writing. Most prominent was the publisher, Angus & Robertson, which promoted Australian literature through various spheres of influence: in publishing, government, industry and internationally.
