Description

This is an extremely rare edition of Burke's works for on October 23, 2012 I searched WorldCat for this edition of Burke's "Works" and only 10 libraries in the world had copies of this 1808,  8 volume edition.

Henry Thomas Buckle calls Burke "one of the greatest men, and, Bacon alone excepted, the greatest thinker, who ever devoted himself to the  practice of English politics."

Buckle cites Nichols, who knew Burke, as saying ""the political knowledge of Mr. Burke might be considered almost as an ecyclopedia; every man who approached him received instruction from his stores."

Buckle also cites Fox who, in 1790, stated in the House of Commons "that if he were to put all the political information which he had learnt from books, all which he had gained from science, and all which any knowledge of the world and its affairs had taught him, into one scale, and the improvement which he had derived from his right hon. Friend's instruction and conversation were placed in the other, he should be at a loss to decide to which to give the prefrence."

Adam Smith told Burke "after they had conversed on subjects of political economy, that he was the only man who, without communication, thought exactly as he did."

Burke described the majority of mankind, who do not form their own opinions, as "those  whom Providence has doomed to live on trust."
