Sir William Fox (1812-1893) explorer, author, businessman, and politician, he was one who helped shape the Constitution Act of 1852, which established home rule for New Zealand.
 

Sir William Fox (1812-1893) explorer, author, businessman, and politician, he was one who helped shape the Constitution Act of 1852, which established home rule for New Zealand. He also served as the nation's prime minister for a period.

After emigrating to New Zealand with his wife in 1842, William became editor of the 'New Zealand Gazette' and 'Britannia Spectator'. Fox became an agent for the New Zealand Company the following year and its principal agent in 1848. His lobbying in England (1851–52) was probably responsible for the addition of Taranaki to the five original provinces in the Constitution of 1852, which granted self-government.

Published in 1851, this 177 page work is Fox's description of the events leading up to the Constitution. This work provides statistical and descriptive accounts of each of the colonies of New Zealand, as well as providing details relating to the Maoris, and government both current and proposed ideas.

Fox's leading role as an explorer, New Zealand Company agent and incipient colonial politician gave the book an authority and pungency lacking from so many contemporary accounts.
