Sydney George Fisher (March 2, 1809 July 25, 1871) was a Philadelphia lawyer, farmer, plantation owner, political essayist and poet. Fisher wrote several books and delivered numerous talks. Of most interest was his highly sought after diary, full of keen, witty and unabashed observationsand often criticismsof individuals from society, national politics, and his own day-to-day activities. He was largely disconnected from the world of work, save for the exceptions when he reluctantly agreed to practice law. He did not need to make money (though he never felt his income sufficient), so his views of land speculation and the war against the Second Bank of the United States, the panics, and the commercial activities of those around him are particularly thought-provoking. Fisher wrote frequently about politics and the U.S. Constitution, including Evolution of the Constitution of the United States, the purpose of which was to show that it is a development of progressive history and not an isolated document struck off at a given time or an imitation of English or Dutch forms of government. His large book tracks the origins of the Constitution, analyzes its wording, and discusses changing interpretations over the course of the first century of American history. This edition of Evolution of the Constitution of the United States is specially formatted with a Table of Contents.
