PUTTICK, A.A. [Athol Alfred?]. - Television. A simple story which provides a peep into the treasure trove of Television. [cover title: Television Without Tears].

Melbourne, Ruskin Press [1943?]. 15x10cm publisher's plain light card wrapper and illustrated dustwrapper; 69pp, frontispiece and illustrations throughout. Minor signs of use, rather good. ¶ This scarce, perhaps even rare, little book is the first Australian book on television. J.A. Kline's preface notes that war had put a hold on the development of television in Australia - by 'put a hold' we mean nothing had been done - and Puttick canvases the financial problems faced by a small population in a large country. An optimistic, perhaps foolishly optimistic, book to put out in the middle of the war, presumably it was ignored and Puttick never returned to it. I can't find that he published anything else but I came across a reference to an A.A. Puttick playing a part in aircraft design in the mid fifties. He worked in technical education and died in 1965.
