"The colonist ([is] Wakefield himself) ... dictated to A. Allom in 100 days ... when plans for the Canterbury settlement were gathering momentum ... today it is chiefly of interest as much for the autobiographical passages as for the oft-repeated theoretical concepts. Includes in appendix Charles Buller's April 1843 speech in the House of Commons on systemic colonisation and a letter to Sir Benjamin Hawes, Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies, by four leading colonists protesting at Grey's interpretation of the New Zealand Government Act of 1846"--Bagnall

An inquiry into the nature and causes of the wealth of nations by Adam Smith( Book )
15 editions published in 1843 in English and held by 135 libraries worldwide
First published in 1776, the year in which the American Revolution officially began, Smith's Wealth of Nations sparked a revolution of its own. In it Smith analyzes the major elements of political economy, from market pricing and the division of labor to monetary, tax, trade, and other government policies that affect economic behavior. Throughout he offers seminal arguments for free trade, free markets, and limited government. Criticizing mercantilists who sought to use the state to increase their nations' supply of precious metals, Smith points out that a nation's wealth should be measured by the well-being of its people. Prosperity in turn requires voluntary exchange of goods in a peaceful, well-ordered market. How to establish and maintain such markets? For Smith the answer lay in man's social instincts, which government may encourage by upholding social standards of decency, honesty, and virtue, but which government undermines when it unduly interferes with the intrinsically private functions of production and exchange. Social and economic order arise from the natural desires to better one's (and one's family's) lot and to gain the praise and avoid the censure of one's neighbors and business associates. Individuals behave decently and honestly because it gives them a clear conscience as well as the good reputation necessary for public approbation and sustained, profitable business relations

"First section sets out ... his principles of colonisation, New Zealand's peculiar suitability for the experiment, the Association's plans for the Māoris, government and the churches. The second ... probably the result of a literature search by Ward ... information ... on the country, its climate, soil, inhabitants, trade and shipping from numerous publicatons. The Rev. Hawtrey's anonymous and naive plans (Appendix A) for Māori improvement received justifiably rough handling"--Bagnall
