Marx and Engels thoroughly exposed the provocation of the organisers of this trial and the despicable tricks the Prussian police state employed against the international workers' movement. 10] [13] A quotation from a speech by W. Bevan, President of the Trades Union Congress, delivered at a meeting of the Congress held at Swansea in 1887. Bevan's speech was reported in the journal Commonweal on September 17, 1887. 11] [14] Woodbull and Claflin's Weeky, an American journal published by the bourgeois feminists, Victoria Woodhull and Tennessee Claflin, in New York from 1870 to 1876.

This was the last edition collated by one of its authors. It also included the prefaces to the German editions of 1872 and 1883. A part of Engels's preface to this new edition was reprinted in an editorial entitled "A New Edition of the Communist Manifesto " in No. 33, August 16, 1890, of Der Sozialdemokrat, organ of the German Social-Democratic Party, as well as in an editorial of Arbeiter-Zeitung, No. 48, November 28, 1890, celebrating Engels's seventieth birthday. 16] [22] Engels is referring to his preface to the German edition of 1883.
