1840s Australian periodical mastheadsPosted: July 23, 2013
Via the National Library and the Australian Cooperative Digitisation Project, here is a selection of first edition mastheads from periodicals published between 1840 and 1845.
I particularly like The Bee of Australia which held on in the market for just two months.
“The bee still gathers sweets where flowerets spring, but knaves and fools beware – our bee can sting”
The Teetotal Advocate had previously gone under the banner of The Launceston Courier. One wonders what prompted the name change.
