Notes

First edition in Dutch, exceptionally rare. OCLC records just two copies in institutions outside the Netherlands: one at the British Library and one at the Vlaamse Erfgoedbibliotheek in Beglium; there are eight listed as located in the Netherlands. First published in English earlier the same year, On Liberty, "perhaps more than any other of his works, has been viewed by posterity as the kernel of his social philosophy" (ODNB). "Many of Mill's ideas are now the commonplaces of democracy. His arguments for freedom of every kind of thought and speech have never been improved on. He was the first to recognize the tendency of a democratically elected majority to tyrannize over a minority" (PMM).
