Liberty  (London 1894-1896) pamphlets

Page history last edited by Barry Pateman 9 years, 9 months ago

As yet these are not in any chronological order


Tcherkesoff, W         Let Us Be Just ( An open letter to Liebknecht)   1896


" Ireland"                  Environment and Character  ( interestingly an extant copy has the title  " Social Conditions and Character") 1896


Bevington, L.S.          Anarchism and Violence (appears in November 1896 " Liberty")


Henry, Agnes            Anarchist Communism and It's Relation to State Socialism


Hamon, A.                 Definition of Crime


Bevington, L.S.           Common-Sense Country


E. Domela Nieuwenhuis  ( trans. R. Grierson)      Socialism in Danger, Part One


-------------------------------------       Socialism in Danger , Part Two


"Spokeshave"               Jones' Boy : Dialogue on Social Questions between an "Enfant Terrible" and his father

                                   The Liberty edition includes the songs " True Freedom, " No Master" and " England Arise"

                             ( This was published by James Leatham at the Deveron Press, Turriff, Scotland around 1916? ). Carl Slienger suggests it was originally published in Canada.

                                    The earliest edition I have found is by James Leatham in 1890 and, perhaps by the same publisher in 1891.These were published in Aberdeen. W. Reeves and Co published  the 6th edition in London in 1906. The Twentieth Century Press in London published an edition in 1908 with the note " collected and repr. from the "Toronto Labour Reformer". In 1909 " Commonweal" the organ of the New Zealand Socialist Party" published an edition after having published some(all?) of the text in Volume 2 No 5, July 1 1904. Then Leatham published it again in 1916? at the Deveron Press. If the Liberty edition was the 3rd there must have been two more after ( or some before I haven't found) to make the Reeves edition the 6th



Bevington, L.S.             Liberty Lyrics


Reclus, Elisee               The Ideal and Youth (1895?)


-----------                An Anarchist on Anarchy (1894)

                                   (Reprinted from the Contemporary Review") A fourth edition 1897


De Cleyre, Voltairine     In Defence of Emma Goldmann and the Right of Expropriation


Duncan, H.H.                 A Plea for Anarchist Communism


Various                         The Why I Ams (First Series) ; Why I am a Socialist and an Atheist by Conrad Naewiger; Why I am a Social

                                     Democrat by G. Bernard Shaw; Why I am an Idividualist Anarchist by J. Armsden


Various                          The Why I Ams (Second Series) ; Why I am a Communist by William Morris; Why I am an Expropriationist

                                      by Louise Bevington


In our copy of " Common- Sense Country" (nd)  above the list of Liberty pamphlets is written "in the Press". One of the two pamphlets mentioned is Nieuwenhuis' "Socialism In Danger" Part 2 which was printed. The second pamphlet was " Parliamentary Politics in the Socialist Movement" by Errico Malatesta. That doesn't appear to have been published.

"Pariiamentary Politics in the Socialist Movement" was published in the Feb-April 1895 issues of "Liberty" (three issues) It did not appear as a pamphlet
