Karl Marx & Friedrich Engels as newspaper reporters... multiple articles..

Item # 667854

March 17, 1859


* Karl Marx - German revolutionary socialist

Page 6 has the 2 column article, "THE NEW BRITISH REFORM BILL," which is an article written by the NY Tribune foreign correspondent, Karl Marx. Also included on page 4 is, "CHANCES OF THE IMPENDING WAR," which is a report Friedrich Engels, foreign correspondents for the New York Tribune. Although both are unsigned, the website headed, "Articles By Marx In The New York Tribune," identifies them as such (along with others). Nice to have an issue with multiple articles by Marx and Engels.

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.
