AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'American editions of Australian novels have been appearing since the late 1800s, but we know little about the cultural and economic processes that brought them to this significant group of readers. Excellent archival retention and good fortune have preserved most of the records that relate to the publication of Joseph Furphy's Such is Life by the University of Chicago Press in September 1948. These records tell us about the publication of an Australian novel in an American edition, and detail one of the first instances of the sale to the American market of a culturally-sanctioned "classic" of Australian literature' (Author's abstract).
