This 'Handbook to the Colony of Tasmania' was one of a series of similar guides to the Australian colonies written by the editor of the Australian and New Zealand Gazette as information for potential emigrants.
This small, but very useful, book tells the history and current state (as at 1858) of the colony very concisely. It mentions the convict period, the geography and description of the country, climate, political institutions, revenue and finance, population, society, education, productions and exports, minerals and agriculture. The sale of land regulations are also included.
A useful guide to Tasmania in the 1850s.
