Notes

First edition, published in volume XXII of The Pamphleteer, and here issued separately. "Bentham's main preoccupation during the last ten years of his life was the preparation of a Constitutional Code for the use of all nations and all governments professing liberal opinions. A short avant-courier pre-announcement appeared as an original contribution to The Pamphleteer 1823 (vol. xxii, no. lxiv), and next year he writes: 'A trifle of mine, a Constitutional Code which, should it happen to reach the year 2828 you will then see in force among nations, is at the point of completion.' Vol. i, however, was not published until 1830, and the rest not until it was edited for the Works" (Muirhead).
