The Angus & Roberston edition of 1940 lists the 1936 and 1937 editions but does not indicate that these were in fact published by The Bulletin. Later A&R editions have assumed that the early editions were A&R publications and by 1974 A&R editions expicitly state that the work was first published by A&R in 1936. This has led to confusion and misinformation on many library records. Sighting of original editions and information from Professor Jill Roe has ensured that the AustLit record correctly represents the publication history of this work.
