An Account of Denmark, With Francogallia and Some Considerations for the Promoting of Agriculture and Employing the Poor

Title page

Molesworth’s An Account of Denmark was one of the canonical works of 18th century Whiggism. It is a detailed description of how tyranny and corruption worked, the institutions that made this possible, and the ideas that supported it. This volume also includes his translation of François Hotman’s Francogallia and Some Considerations for the Promoting of Agriculture and Employing the Poor. Molesworth’s Preface to Francogallia was published separately as “The Principles of a True Whig” (1705). These texts encompass Molesworth’s major political statements on liberty as well as his important and understudied recommendations for the application of liberty to economic improvement.

An Account of Denmark, With Francogallia and Some Considerations for the Promoting of Agriculture and Employing the Poor, Edited and with an Introduction by Justin Champion (Indianapolis: Liberty Fund, 2011).
