Notes

First edition, prepared for publication by John Bowring. "Correct views of the changes which it is desirable to introduce into our present plan of commerical policy, do not appear to the writer to have been in all respects well condensed, or satisfactorily developed; and he was not a little gratified when the ill-judges Decree of the Spanish Cortes, dated in July last, induced his venerable friend Mr. Bentham, whose profound and discerning mind had been for some time directed to the interesting events of the Peninsula, to record his opinions of that baneful anti-commercial system which has too long blinded the eyes and contracted the habits and feelings of so large a portion of society." (Preface).
