Karl Marx & Friedrich Engels as newspaper reporters... A collaborative effort...



Item # 653817

July 8, 1854

NEW YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, July 8, 1854  Page 4 has the 2 column article, "STATE OF THE RUSSIAN WAR," which is a collaborative report by the team of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, foreign correspondents for the New York Tribune. Although unsigned, the website headed, "Articles By Marx In The New York Tribune," identifies it as such (along with others).

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.
