The second volume, by Kerry White, is arranged alphabetically by author, with individual titles entered chronologically; variant editions and translations follow in order. Cross-references are given for pseudonyms, and where an author's books are included in a series entry. Title and illustrator indexes are included. A milestone in Australian publishing, this major bibliography remains an essential reference work.
