Angus   Robertson and the British Trade in Australian Books  1930   1970

The underlying expectation, like that of 'Operation London', was to offset short-
term losses on the prospect of future gains as Australian books in Britain became
more established and commercially successful. It was a 'policy of development ...

‘Angus & Robertson and the British Trade in Australian Books, 1930–1970’ traces the history of the printed book in Australia, particularly the production and business context that mediated Australia’s literary and cultural ties to Britain for much of the twentieth century. This study focuses on the London operations of one of Australia’s premier book publishers of the twentieth century: Angus & Robertson. The book argues that despite the obvious limitations of a British-dominated market, Australian publishers had room to manoeuvre in it. It questions the ways in which Angus & Robertson replicated, challenged or transformed the often highly criticised commercial practices of British publishers in order to develop an export trade for Australian books in the United Kingdom. This book is the answer to the current void in the literary market for a substantial history of Australia’s largest publisher and its role in the development of Australia’s export book trade.

How Books, Reading and Subscription Libraries Defined Colonial Clubland in the British Empire argues that within an entangled web of imperial, colonial and book trade networks books, reading and subscription libraries contributed to a core and peripheral criteria of clubbability used by the "select people"—clubbable settler elite—to vet the "proper sort"—clubbable indigenous elite—as they culturally, economically and socially navigated their way towards membership in colonial clubland. As a microcosm for British-controlled areas of the Caribbean, Asia and Africa, this book assesses the history, membership, growth and collection development of three colonial subscription libraries—the Penang Library in Malaysia, the General Library of the Institute of Jamaica and the Lagos Library in Nigeria—during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This work also examines the places these libraries occupied within the lives of their subscribers, and how the British Council reorganized these colonial subscription libraries to ensure their survival and the survival of colonial clubland in a post-colonial world. This book is designed to accommodate historians of Britain and its empire who are unfamiliar with library history, library historians who are unfamiliar with British history, and book historians who are unfamiliar with both topics.

Books and the British Army in the Age of the American Revolution

But he thought the basic military constitution of eighteenth-century Britain

fortifications, siegecraft, and drill; and he completely ignored recent British books

Historians have long understood that books were important to the British army in defining the duties of its officers, regulating tactics, developing the art of war, and recording the history of campaigns and commanders. Now, in this groundbreaking analysis, Ira D. Gruber identifies which among over nine hundred books on war were considered most important by British officers and how those books might have affected the army from one era to another. By examining the preferences of some forty-two officers who served between the War of the Spanish Succession and the French Revolution, Gruber shows that by the middle of the eighteenth century British officers were discriminating in their choices of books on war and, further, that their emerging preference for Continental books affected their understanding of warfare and their conduct of operations in the American Revolution. In their increasing enthusiasm for books on war, Gruber concludes, British officers were laying the foundation for the nineteenth-century professionalization of their nation's officer corps. Gruber's analysis is enhanced with detailed and comprehensive bibliographies and tables.

THE following Index to Part IV of the 'Catalogue of books printed in the XVth -century now in the British Museum' (London 1916), containing the books printed at Subiaco and in Rome, is the result of the joint initiative of the author and publisher, who have undertaken the work on their own responsibility. Now that, owing to the -outbreak of the war, the work on the catalogue has been temporarily discontinued, they trust that students of incunabula of whatever nationality will feel indebted to them for two reasons: (I) Many of the books described in this Index have appeared without name of printer, which makes it very difficult to find a certain book without an Index. '(2) The editors of the present work have arrived at a great many fresh conc1usions which all students of this branch of 1earning will have to take into account. The order of this Index, as of the Index to Parts 1-IH, is the same as that in Hain's 'Repertorium Bibliographicum', the books not known to Hain being interpolated as nearly as may be on the same system. As this Index, as a matter of course, is only a provisional one, the names of the printers have been indicated with the greatest possible succinctness, the place-name 'Rome' having been omitted throughout. Only the three books printed at Subiaco are accompanied by a reference to their place of origin.

Combining insights from imperial studies and transnational book history, this provocative collection opens new vistas on both fields through ten accessible essays, each devoted to a single book. Contributors revisit well-known works associated with the British empire, including Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre, Thomas Macaulay's History of England, Charles Pearson's National Life and Character, and Robert Baden-Powell's Scouting for Boys. They explore anticolonial texts in which authors such as C. L. R. James and Mohandas K. Gandhi chipped away at the foundations of imperial authority, and they introduce books that may be less familiar to students of empire. Taken together, the essays reveal the dynamics of what the editors call an "imperial commons," a lively, empire-wide print culture. They show that neither empire nor book were stable, self-evident constructs. Each helped to legitimize the other. Contributors.
