Notes

First edition of Bentham's landmark work on the law of evidence, published in English (but still in the form defined by Dumont's editorship) two years later, in 1825, as A Treatise on Judicial Evidence, Extracted from the Manuscripts of Jeremy Bentham, Esq. by M. Dumont. Dumont (1759-1829) had started his work of editorship and translation of Bentham's manuscripts in 1801, after travelling around Europe with Lord Henry Petty, with the publication of the Traité de législation civile et pénale (1802). He continued his Bentham project, which closely reflected his own growing interest in the judicial and penal system of his country, until 1828 (De l'organization judiciaire et de la codification).
