Of this work, which went through at eleven English editions, several 19th century American editions, an abridgement, and translation into German, Samuel Johnson stated, "this book is a pretty Essay, and deserves to be held in some estimation."
Henry Home, Lord Kames (1696-1782), made his name, both in his own time and for posterity, in law, criticism, philosophical history and, to some extent, philosophy. Born in Scotland, he became an advocate (barrister) in 1723, and served as a judge in both the civil and criminal courts. Not only did he achieve the highest judicial offices, but he became a member of the main government boards managing the Scottish economy. Through his influence he obtained university professorships for Adam Smith, John Millar and Thomas Reid.
