William Plate, an Unknown Acquaintance of Karl Marx at the British Museum: A Biographical Sketch'

2005

Abstract

Though much has been written on Marx's association with the British Museum, the circumstances of his admission to that institution have remained undocumented. A recent find in the British Museum Archives throws some light on the subject, and reveals for the first time the name of the remarkable gentleman who helped Marx gain access to the Round Reading Room.
