Howard鈥檚 book on the Lazarettos of Europe appeared four years after Paley鈥檚 work. Although it did not deal directly with crimes, it indirectly treated of their connection with punishment. Howard was able to show that whilst in Middlesex alone 467 persons had been executed in nine years, only six had been executed in Amsterdam; that for a hundred years the average number of executions had been one a year at Utrecht and that for twenty-four years there had not even been one there. The inference therefore was that the diminution of punishment had a direct[58] effect in diminishing crime. Howard also advocated the restriction of capital punishment to cases of murder, arson, and burglary; highwaymen, footpads, and habitual thieves should, he thought, end their days in a penitentiary rather than on the gallows. Even this was a bold proposal, in a state of society yet in bondage to Paley.?

No man has gratuitously parted with a portion of his own liberty with a view to the public good; that is a chimera which only exists in romances. Each one of us would wish, if it were possible, that the[122] covenants which bind others should not bind himself. There is no man but makes himself the central object of all the combinations of the globe..

But if the interest of Beccaria鈥檚 chapter on Torture is now merely historical, an interest that is actual still attaches to his advocacy of the total abolition of capital punishment, this being the cause with which his name is most generally associated, and for which it is likely to be longest remembered. Previous writers, like Montaigne, if they deprecated the excess or severity of the death penalty, never thought of urging that it should be abolished altogether.
This essay on the 鈥業magination鈥 was published soon after the 鈥楥rimes and Punishments鈥 in the periodical to which Beccaria alludes in his letter to Morellet. 鈥楾he Caff茅鈥 was the name of the periodical which, from June 1764, he and his friends published every tenth day for a period of two years. The model of the paper was the English 鈥楽pectator,鈥 and its object to propagate useful knowledge pleasantly among the Milanese, whilst its name rested on the supposition that the friends who composed it executed their labours during meetings in a coffee-house. The most interesting contributions to it by Beccaria are his 鈥楩ragment on Style,鈥 his article on 鈥楶eriodical Newspapers,鈥 and his essay on the 鈥楶leasures of the Imagination.鈥
