Karl Marx letter

Scope and Content

Address: London. To Maurice Lachâtre. Marx approves of the 'idée de publier la traduction de "das Kapital" en livraisons périodiques', but thinks that 'le public français, toujours impatient de conclure' will not continue to buy the parts because of the difficulties encountered in the introductory chapters. The letter ends: 'Il n'y a pas de route royale pour la science et ceux là seuls ont chance d'arriver à ses sommets lumineux qui ne craignent pas de se fatiguer à gravir ses sentiers escarpés.'
Autograph, with signature.
