170pp. Soft covers. A very good clean copy. ISBN 1925333701 ***Smith, a lawyer in his native Britain, became a wealthy pastoralist in Van Diemen's Land / Tasmania and is perhaps best known for his bequest to found a teacher training college, the building for which still stands on Hobart's Domain (though the college itself does not). The diary is a lively account of an emigrant ship's voyage, with the 'first impressions' of Hobart Town comprising the last nine pages of the book.
Title: The Diary of Philip Thomas Smith on board the Royal Admiral en route for Van Diemen's Land... 27 November 1831 -- 8 April 1832, and his first impressions of Hobart Town.
