Moral Inquiries of the Situation of Man and Brutes (1824)
Gompertz was one of the pioneers of animal protection in England and key figure in the early history of the RSPCA. His work is an early attempt to lay out the rational foundations for non-injury to animals. Gompertz was a vegetarian who argued that 'Every animal has more right to the use of its own body than others have to use it.'
