Most widely held works by John Bowring
An introduction to the principles of morals and legislation by Jeremy Bentham( Book )

61 editions published between 1838 and 2008 in English and held by 854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Having a two-fold object in view, the work herewith submitted to my countrymen is in two parts. By the first, which is nothing more than a familiar biographical sketch, they are brought acquainted with the man Jeremy Bentham: by the last, which may be regarded as an abridgment of his whole system of philosophy, with the Philanthropist, the Lawgiver, and the Statesman. Of the biographical sketch referred to, which precedes the following translation of his celebrated work on morals and law, by M. Dumont of Geneva, a small part has already appeared in the Yankee and other journals of our country; the remainder is entirely new. The whole of the second part has been carefully reviewed and compared with the originals, paragraph by paragraph. The readers (and the writers) of the Edinburgh, Quarterly, Westminster and North American Reviews, will now have what they never have had before--an opportunity of knowing the truth and the whole truth about the character and opinions, the philosophy and the faith of a man, whose followers--the calumniated Utilitarians--are now so numerous and so powerful, as to be reckoned a party in the British empire"--Preface.

The kingdom and people of Siam by John Bowring( Book )

43 editions published between 1857 and 2013 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published in two volumes in 1857, this was the most successful work of the linguist and politician Sir John Bowring (1792-1872). His varied career included work as an editor and translator, service as an M.P. in Britain and as a consul in China, and the controversial governorship of Hong Kong. His appointment to this last post in 1854 saw him aggressively assert British interests with little regard for Asian sensibilities. The following year he travelled to Siam (Thailand) to negotiate a treaty with that country which became a model for future agreements, giving the Siamese government an insight into Western diplomacy which would be invaluable. Volume 1 contains chapters on the country's geography and history; population; manners and customs; legislation; resources, industry and finances; culture and religion; and its capital, Bangkok. Volume 2 covers the political make-up of the nation, containing chapters on its dependencies and diplomatic relations"--Publisher's description
