Notes

First edition. In 1809 Basil Montagu (1770-1851), author and legal reformer, "along with the Quaker philanthropist William Allen and others... formed the Society for the Diffusion of Knowledge upon the Punishment of Death and the Improvement of Prison Discipline (re-established in 1829 as the Society for the Diffusion of Information on the Subject of Capital Punishments). As part of this effort he wrote The Opinion of Different Authors upon the Punishment of Death (1813)" (ODNB).
