Bailey, Samuel (1791-1870)

Bailey, Samuel, was born in 1791 in Sheffield, where afterwards he became a banker. He twice contested his native city as a 'philosophical radical' without success, and died there, after a remarkably busy but unusually quiet and uneventful life, January 18, 1870, leaving £80,000 as a bequest to the town. Between 1821 and 1862 he published thirteen works, chiefly on political economy and mental philosophy.
