The Anarchist: A Revolutionary Journal

I've just bought a contemporary article by David Nicholl on the 1893 Featherstone Massacre which was published in an edition of The Anarchist: A Revolutionary Journal, and which I'm going to put onto libcom once I get a scanner. Unfortunately, I only have Nicholl's article and not the whole edition, which also contained articles by Peter Kropotkin, Errico Malatesta, Louise Michel, J. Blair Smith, Jean Grave among others. Does anyone know anything about this journal, or have other articles/ editions that were published under its name?

Edited for clarity and to correct spelling mistakes.

Sorry, the 'among others' are H. H. Duncan and George Cores.

Admin: any need to be so arsey over a typo?

"Enrico" Malatesta? Really? That's like spelling it "Durutti," ffs. And I'm pretty sure it's not Jean "Grace." What's next? The "International" Workers of the World?

Yes. Two careless mistakes in one sentence screams out to be corrected.

And Arbeiten, spelling is not the same as grammar, and correcting shitty grammar doesn't make one a nazi. Godwin's rule, motherfucker.

Then again, BB, being snide and disparaging over a couple of honest mistakes, especially in the context of someone trying to find information and promising to add interesting things to the site, seems a little bit rude. Just saying...

Right, because nobody on Libcom has ever posted anything snide or disparaging or rude.... Or were all those responses to dishonest mistakes? Just saying....
