Selling Marx

For sale at the International Antiquarian Book Fair at Olympia was 49 small manuscript pages, scribbled in ink and written in 1845, mostly in French, this item was a fragment of Karl Marx’s notes for his forthcoming book, Capital. The price? £2 million.

Or how about a letter - a single sheet of two brief paragraphs from the same author, for £110,000?

Hat-tip to Rene Gimpel in his letter to Weekly Worker
