General contextRoget's 'Thesaurus' is his most famous work and since its first issue in 1852 has not been out of print. Overall, Roget published over a hundred articles in his lifetime with a variety of publications. While he was from a Geneva family and was well-versed in multiple European languages, he did not venture abroad after his initial tour in 1802. This stemmed from him having been arrested during the outbreak of the Napoleonic wars. He argued for his Geneva ancestry and was released, arriving back in England in November 1803. His tour companions included Lovell Edgeworth and remained imprisoned for further years.
