Baron Bischoff - Philosopher Smith and the Birth of Tasmanian Mining, by Nic Haygarth, 2004,  209pp,  B5, soft cover, indexed.
 
Extremely well written and researched book. "For a man whose 44 years had been a lonely climb towards self-worth, the summit of Mount Bischoff must have been a giddy prospect for James 'Philosopher' Smith. He presided over a fortune, was embraced by his social 'betters', and was hailed as the father and saviour of Tasmania"
