Notes

First edition. "In the stormy years between 1815 and 1825 Bentham was glad to publish with anyone prepared to take a risk of prosecution, and in consequence favoured the radical and atheistic publishers like the Hunts and William Hone... It is not surprising to find the courageous Hone sponsoring a Tract on Liberty and three more Tracts relative to Spanish and Portuguese affairs which, while ostensibly relating to those countries, had a continual eye on English affairs and dealt some hard knocks at the House of Lords and the Judicial System." (Muirhead).
