Why Marx would never cut it as a Marxologist.

In ‘Second Nature: Gender in Marx’s Grundrisse,’ Amy Wendling provides this amusing anecdote about Marx’s notes on John Millar’s The Origin of the Distinction of Ranks; or, An Inquiry into the Circumstances which give rise to Influence and Authority in the Different Member of Society: ‘In the notebook itself, Marx has misspelled Millar’s name as ‘Millard.’ He has also rendered the title of the book differently, as ‘Observations concerning the distinction of Ranks in Society’, and dated it as a second edition from 1753, leaving readers to wonder if he was working from an earlier version than the standard first edition of the Millar work from 1771.’ Wendling, p. 351.
