Summary/Abstract: In the XIX c. the lessons of British democracy were still being written and had the ring of novelty for native and foreign ear alike. Some of the representative names or texts reached the Bulgarian national culture in due time, yet not within a system of direct British influences or organised Bulgarian choices. The main problem was that the British and the Bulgarians had no way of communicating on equal terms. The former belonged to a colonial empire and enjoyed a secure place in the political and cultural limelight, while the latter formed a small and heterogeneous community on the territory of another colonial empire and shared a degree of general invisibility.
