Book Description Melbourne University Press, Australia, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Second Edition, Second edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. The early Sydney Bulletin , a parade of expressive tricks and marvels , came out of the vociferous clamour that was the late nineteenth-century press - British radical weeklies, battling American dailies, lively news sheets from bush towns and goldfields. Turning up every week in its violent pink cover - half Australia writes it , they said, all Australia reads it - the Bulletin was the Great Print Circus: a better book said one of its veterans than any of the books that came out of it . In this remarkable study of the Bulletin and its founding editor, J. F. Archibald, Sylvia Lawson provides a provocative re-interpretation of the legendary 1880s and 1890s, looking at the dark side of the circus as well as its high entertainment.
