Excerpt from Twelve Years Wanderings in the British Colonies, Vol. 2 of 2: From 1835 to 1847

Van Dieman's Land is an island situated near the south-eastern extremity of the mainland of New Holland, or Australasia, or Australia. It extends from 40° 40' to 43° 40' S. latitude, and lies between the meridians of 144° 40', and 148° 20' east. The surface of the island is about twenty-four thousand square miles, which is very nearly the extent of Ireland.

Van Dieman's Land was discovered in 1642 by Tasman, a Dutch navigator, despatched from Batavia by the Dutch, on a voyage to ascertain how far south Austral-Asia extended. Van Dieman was the name bestowed by Tasman on the land he first fell in with, in 46° south. He so called it in honour of the Governor-General, who at that time presided at Batavia; but in remembrance of its first discoverer, it is frequently called Tasmania.
