George Edwards (1752–1823)

Edwards, George. An English or Scotch writer on sociology and social reform; born in 1752; died in London, Feb. 17, 1823. Possessed of the conviction that he held the precious secret of the relief of man’s estate, he wrote some fifty books to disseminate the information, among which is one with the long title: ‘The Practical System of Human Economy, or the New Era at Length Fully Ascertained, Whereby We are Able in One Immediate Simple Undertaking to Remove the Distress, Burdens, and Grievances of the Times, and to Bring All our Interests, Public, Private, and Commercial, to their Intended Perfection’ (1816).
