Resource description

This volume contains a selection of 120 documents from the hitherto unpublished document collection entitled "The political history of the English labour movement, 1857-1872". These writings were assembled by the German historian and emigre Gustav Mayer (1871-1948) between 1937, when he became an associate member of the International Institute of Social History, Amsterdam, and 1944. Mayer, biographer of Friedrich Engels and editor of the Lassalle papers, was one of the few historians in this period to devote attention to the decades between the demise of Chartism in 1848 and the rise of organized labour in the 1880s.
