First Catechism and Hymns, translated into the language of Panaeati, Papua. Melbourne : Spectator Publishing Co. Pty. Ltd., [1918]. Octavo (182 x 123 mm), string bound, original cloth backed printed blue papered boards, 72 pp; a superb copy; from The Papuan Collection of Charles Fletcher (Melbourne), his bookplate to the front free-endpaper.

Copies are recorded in three Australian collections (National Library of Australia; University of Melbourne Library; University of Adelaide Library). The NLA catalogue entry states “[Adelaide : Methodist Missionary Society of Australasia]”; however, the colophon (page 72) in the present example shows this is a Melbourne imprint.
