Since the discovery of tasmanite in 1851, scientific interest in this oil shale has shown much variation. The recent resurgence of research activity on tasmanite has been occasioned by the availability of new techniques which now permit the organic matter to be examined in considerable detail. This paper presents a summary of the history, nature and chemistry of tasmanite, followed. by a comprehensive bibliography. The survey was prompted by a recent catalogue of Tdsmanites from the palynological viewpoint, and the lack of a similar publication on tasmanite itself. The references are given in alphabetical order, together with an abstract. Additional annotations are made, if pertinent.
