The Commonweal

The Commonweal

An incomplete archive of the publication The Commonweal produced by the Socialist League which was one of the earliest socialist/anarchist organisations in the UK, and edited by William Morris.

The Socialist League was formed in 1885 after a split from the Social Democratic Federation. By 1888 there was a split between the parliamentarians and anti-parliamentarians.

I tried to upload the files as PDF's but they're too large for the site(i.e. over 16MB)

Ah right well thanks for this. Could you try compressing them with this? https://smallpdf.com/compress-pdf

That usually works to get stuff below 16 and keep it readable

I tried but it only seems to have reduced it from 97.5 MB to 35.4 MB. Trying again.

thanks for trying! If they are down to 30 MB, then you could still post each one in two parts if you split the PDF https://smallpdf.com/split-pdf
sorry about the hassle we really appreciate your help! Unfortunately we have to keep the file size limit down to avoid using up our bandwidth

I've added documents in docx and odt as these have resulted in much smaller file sizes than the pdfs.

I had a look through these and unfortunately they were rife with OCR errors, so I have added the PDF in three parts instead
