Dirk Struik's article is in an old issue of Science & Society, and
Smolenski's article was in the JPE but, as I recall, did not say that much
about the notebooks. There's an extensive discussion in Paulus Gerdes, "Marx
demystifies calculus", Studies in Marxism, Vol. 16, Marxist Educational
Press (Minnesota, 1985). This may be the one filled with commentary that
Alan mentioned.
