This is an early draft version of Miles Franklin's My Career goes bung, a work which remained unpublished until 1946. The novel was originally written shortly after the author's success with her first publication, My Brilliant Career (1899), and details the setbacks and struggle of achieving literary recognition at that time.

This is the final revised version of the play Ned Kelly by Douglas Stewart as it was sent to the publishers, Angus & Robertson. The 170 pages of typescript have many annotations in the authors own hand reflecting his final thoughts on the form of the text. Together with this typescript of the play, the Library also possesses the original pencil sketches, and the pen and ink drawings, by Norman Lindsay which were used to illustrate the published edition.
