Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 294 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.6in.Excerpt from The Spirit of the Age: Or Contemporary PortraitsMr. Bentham is one of those persons who verify the old adage, that A prophet has most honour out of his own country. His reputation lies at the circumference; and the lights of his understanding are reflected, with increasing lustre, on the other side of the globe. His name is little known in England, better in Europe, best of all in the plains of Chili and the mines of Mexico. He has offered constitutions for the New World, and legislated for future times. The people of Westminster, where he lives, hardly dream of such a person; but the Siberian savage has received cold comfort from his lunar aspect, and may say to him with Caliban - I know thee, and thy dog and thy bush! The tawny Indian may hold out the hand of fellowship to him across the Great Pacific. We believe that the Empress Catherine corresponded with him; and we know that the Emperor Alexander called upon him, and presented him with his miniature in a gold snuff-box, which the philosopher, to his eternal honour, returned. Mr. Hobhouse is a greater man at the hustings, Lord Rolle at Plymouth Dock; but Mr. Bentham would carry it hollow, on the score of popularity, at Paris or Pegu. The reason is, that our authors influence is purely, intellectual. About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
