The ‘New Wales’ material written in 1791, which is published here for the first time, constitutes Bentham’s first detailed engagement with Britain’s infant penal colony in New South Wales, which had been established in January 1788. It is also intimately connected to Bentham’s campaign to persuade the British government build his panopticon penitentiary, which he had offered to the Pitt administration in January 1791.
