Preliminary download of Jeremy Bentham, Writings on Political Economy, Volume IV: Circulating Annuities and other writings on National Debt

ChrisRiley25 September 2019

The Bentham Project is delighted to announce that a preliminary version of Jeremy Bentham, Writings on Political Economy, Volume IV: Circulating Annuities and other writings on National Debt, edited by Michael Quinn, is now available for free perusal and download from University College London’s digital repository.

All but one of the works presented in this volume were written between September 1798 and August 1801, and all but the first concern Bentham’s Annuity Note plan for the issue of an interest-bearing paper currency by government which might become the standard medium for holding government annuities.

For the first five parts of the text, and a very brief editorial introduction, please visit the following link. The remaining eleven text files will be made available via the same source in the next three weeks.

The online version lacks a full editorial introduction, and name and subject indices, which must await the publication of the volume in due course.

Dr Quinn would like to express his sincere gratitude to all of the Transcribe Bentham volunteers whose transcripts of material from Boxes 1–3 of the Bentham Papers were invaluable in the preparation of the text—they are thanked by name (or by username) on p. 9 of ‘Ed Int & Prelims’.
