An Edition of the Papers of the London Corresponding Society

To prepare for publication an edition of the papers of the first working and class reform group in England, the London Corresponding Society (1792-1798). This controversial organization of artisans, mechanics, and small shopkeepers sought a radical reform of Parliament. Within two years their cause had attracted 10,000 members. The unpublished papers of the Society - letters, minutes, financial records, reports from spies - will help us to decide how close England was to revolution. They will also show us the intricacies of the British working-class movement in its infancy.
