SHIP'S NEWSPAPER. - The Sorata Scorcher Vol. 1 No. 2. October 10(?) 1883.
Printed on the ship Sorata, 1883. Six sheets foolscap with ten pages printed by duplication from manuscript, fastened with a split pin. Some separation along the fold and insect nibbling; the first page very faded, others vary from faintish to dark. ¶ The Sorata plyed the London Sydney route through the seventies and eighties and presuming other passengers were as enthusiastic as this lot there must have been a lot of Sorata newspapers at the time but I can't find any mention of any of them. This was a London to Sydney voyage - arriving on November 4 - and this was issued just before calling at Capetown. It has the expected amount of whimsy and one correspondent has contributed a lost child in the Queensland bush tale.AUD 95.00 [Appr.: EURO 67.25 US$ 72.43 | £UK 58.25 | JP¥ 8064] Book number 9762
