In this connection it has gathered
rare material such as the original
copies of the first official journals
of the Knights of Labor, a first edi-
tion of Proudhon's "La Propriet3",
published in 1849, and a leaflet issued
during the 1848 Revolution in Vien-
na. Miss Inglis is making every at-
tempt to conserve contemporary
leaflets, as she has found very little
preserved material in this field.
The oldest item in the Labalie
collection is a file of Robert Dale
Owen's "Free inquirer." Owen, the
son of the famous Utopian Socialist,
first brought out his paper in 1828.
Other valuable newspapers in the
collection include John Swinton's
Paper, a highly comprehensive one-
man journal published in 1883 to
1887, and the London Freiheit, which
appeared in 1880.
The collection has also gathered
a large amount of labor art, drama,
poetsy, and novels.
