Karl Marx as a newspaper reporter... The State of Europe...



Item # 653572

July 19, 1854

NEW YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, July 19, 1854  Taking approximately 2 1/2 columns is a page 6 article, "THE STATE OF EUROPE," which is written by Karl Marx, and is appropriately signed in block type: KARL MARX.

Note: This is an interesting issue which provides the opportunity for a collector to own an original/authentic newspaper with an article written by Karl Marx, the communist revolutionary who would become more famous after his death than during his lifetime. Karl spent most of his life in exile, part of which was in London where he joined the Communist League. As noted in the website "The History Guide": "...during the first half of the 1850s the Marx family lived in poverty in a three room flat in the Soho quarter of London. Marx and Jenny already had four children and two more were to follow. Marx's major source of income at this time was Engels who was trying a steadily increasing income from the family business in Manchester. This was supplemented by weekly articles written as a foreign correspondent for the New York Daily Tribune ."

Other news of the day accompanied by period advertising is found throughout.

Eight pages, and in very nice condition.
