Comments¶ When Lowell served as the American Foreign Minister to the UK, he gave a series of lectures in various parts of England and Scotland, several of which were first separately published (as here) and later collected in Democracy and Other Addresses (1887). The first separate editions of those lectures are all very scarce.
