Add MSS 33547 is a volume of manuscripts from the British Library's Bentham Papers collection. It consists of Bentham's thoughts on prize law, and the payment of bounties to seamen for the capture of foreign ships during periods of war. These manuscripts were written between 1805 and 1811, with the majority being composed in 1810.

The volume also includes printed versions of the Prize Acts of 1805 (45 Geo. III. c.72) and 1809 (49 Geo. III c.123), which feature Bentham's notes and annotations.

Below is an outline of the manuscripts.
