An acknowledgement at the front of this book notes that previous editions of this publication were published by Gregory's Guides and Maps; Murray Book Distributors Pty Ltd, the publishers of this volume, is an associate company. Comparing the content and other details of Murray's Guide to Bowls with that of Gregory's Australian Guide to Bowls, it seems almost certain that the latter was an earlier edition of the former.
