EDITED BY HIS SISTER LADY TREVELYAN.
IN EIGHT VOLUMES.
In preparing for publication a complete and uniform edition of LORD MACAULAY's Works, it has been thought right to include some portion of what he placed on record as a Jurist in the East. The Papers selected are the Introductory Report upon the Indian Penal Code, and the Notes appended to that Code, in which most of its leading provisions were explained and defended. These Papers were entirely written by LORD MACAULAY, but the substance of them was the result of the joint deliberations of the Indian Law Commission, of which he was President. They are by no means merely of Indian interest, for, while they were the commencement of a new system of law for India, they chiefly relate to general principles of jurisprudence which are of universal application.
