Notes

First collected edition of Bentham's works, edited and partly translated into French by Bentham's collaborator and disciple Etienne Dumont, preceding by 8 years the first English collected edition. "Even in the English-speaking world it was largely through Dumont's versions that Bentham came to be read" (Dinwiddy, p. 293).
