This article is in this list because it shows how a conscious decision by the management of the Hogarth Press could very well have had beneficial effects on Woolf's Australian reception. The production of an attractive uniform edition series of her books shows a firm which takes advantage of Woolf's growing reputation and sales overseas, to judiciously repeat her success in Australia. The Hogarth Press also do some clever marketing, by announcing in advance the imminent Australian arrival of Woolf's latest novel, "Orlando", also to be bound in the attractive fornmat.
I am adding this article to this list because it deals with non-literary factors which impinge on the sales of books. I do this because I am interested in the factors which may or may not have had an effect on the Australian reception of Woolf's books. It is clear from "Australian Women's Weekly" and newspaper material that the literary characteristics of Woolf's works had effects on her Australian reception, but primary sources have less to say about Woolf's reception in non-literary terms.
