New material to transcribe: Constitutional Code

By Tim Causer, on 1 May 2013

We are pleased to say that another batch of new material, this time dating from 1823 to Bentham’s death in 1832, is now available to transcribe. Box 41 contains material relating to Bentham’s massive, unfinished Constitutional Code, the major work of his final years. The Code was addressed to ‘all nations and all governments professing liberal opinions’, as in the course of drafting it, Bentham had been encouraged that the Code might be adopted in Portugal, Greece, and a number of South American nations.

We hope that you find this material of interest, and enjoy attempting to decipher it! Do let us know if you have any queries.
