Linton- Life in the Collections
10) Geschichte des Sozialismus in England.
The still suitable survey on the formation of English socialism by the Austrian historian Max Beer was issued in Stuttgart by the noted radical publisher Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Dietz. Beer mentions “the famous xylographer and poet W.J. Linton” in connection with the publishing programme of James Watson and refers to his activities as a member of a Chartist delegation in Paris in 1848.
