Karl Marx as a newspaper reporter... Russian policy against Turkey...



Item # 663875

July 15, 1853

NEW YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, July 15, 1853

* Karl Marx - as a correspondent to the NY Tribune

On page 6 under the heading, "LATER FROM EUROPE", is a nearly 3-column article by Karl Mark headed: "Russian Policy Against Turkey - Chartism", which is signed by him in block type: KARL MARX. See images for details.

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 with period advertisements found throughout. Complete with all 8 pages, a rough left margin, but  in overall nice condition.
