Item Description: S.-Peterburg, N.I. Poliakov, 1872. Large 8vo. Nice contemporary Russian half calf binding with gilt title to spine. Minor wear to capitals and corners. Inner hinge a little weak. Old Russian library markings to back pasted-down end-paper. An unusally nice copy. (2), XIII, (3), 678 pp. First Russian edition (first issue, with the issue-pointers), being the first translation into any language, of Marx' immensely influential main work, probably the greatest revolutionary work of the nineteenth century.Marx' groundbreaking "Das Kapital" originally appeared in German in 1867, and only the first part of the work appeared in Marx' lifetime. The very first foreign translation of the work was that into Russian, which, considering Russian censorship at the time, would seem a very unlikely event. But as it happened, "Das Kapital" actually came to enjoy greater renown in Russia than in any other country; for many varying reasons, it won a warm reception in many political quarters in Russia, and it enjoyed a totally unexpected rapid and widespread success. The first Russian translation of "Das Kapital" came to have a profound influence the economic development of of Russia. It was frequently quoted in the most important economic and political discussions on how to industrialize Russia and the essential points of the work were seen by many as the essential questions for an industrializing Russia. " "Das Kapital" arrived in Russia just at the moment that the Russian economy was recovering from the slump that followed Emancipation and was beginning to assume capitalist characteristics. Industrialization raised in the minds of the intelligentsia the question of their country's economic destiny. And it was precisely this concern that drew Mikhailovsky and many of the "intelligenty" to "Das Kapital"." (Resis, p. 232).The story of how the first printing of the first translation of "Das Kapital" came about, is quite unexpected. As the "triumph of Marxism in backward Russia is commonly regarded as a historical anomaly" (Resis, p. 221), so is the triumph of the first Russian edition of "Das Kapital". The main credit for the coming to be of the translation of "Das Kapital" must be given to Nicolai Danielson, later a highly important economist in his own right. The idea came from a circle of revolutionary youths in St. Petersburg, including N.F. Danielson, G.A. Lopatin, M.F. Negreskul, and N.N. Liubavin, all four of whom participated in the project. Danielson had read the work shortly after its publication and it had made such an impact on him that he decided to make it available to the Russian reading public. He persuaded N.I. Poliakov to run the risk of publishing it. "Poliakov, the publisher, specialized in publishing authors, Russian and foreign, considered dangerous by the authorities. Poliakov also frequently subsidized revolutionaries by commissioning them to do translations for his publishing house. Diffusion of advanced ideas rather than profit was no doubt his primary motive in publishing the book." (Resis, p. 222). Owing to Danielson's initiative, Poliakov engaged first Bakunin, and then Lopatin to do the translation. Danielson himself finished the translation and saw the work through press. It was undeniably his leadership that brought Marx to the Russian reading public. In fact, with the first Russian edition of "Das Kapital", Danielson was responsible for the first public success of the revolutionizing work. "Few scholars today would deny that "Das Kapital" has had an enormous effect on history in the past hundred years. Nonetheless, when the book was published in Hamburg on September 5, 1867, it made scarcely a stir, except among German revolutionaries. Marx complained that his work was greeted by "a conspiracy of silence" on the part of "a pack of liberals and vulgar economists." However desperately he contrived to provoke established economists to take up "Das Kapital"'s challenge to their work, his efforts came to nought. But in Octo. Bookseller Inventory # 52790

Item Description: 1887. First Edition. MARX, Karl. Capital: A Critical Analysis of Capitalist Production. London: Swan Sonnenschein, 1887. Two volumes. Octavo, original gilt-stamped burgundy cloth recased. Housed together in a custom clamshell box. $17,000.First edition in English of the first part of Marx's landmark Das Kapital, the only part published in his lifetime, containing substantial revisions made by Marx for the first French translation, this two-volume work edited by Engels and translated from the third German edition. A very scarce and important printing of a seminal work in economic and political thought.Expelled from Paris in 1844, from Brussells in 1848, and from Cologne in 1849, Karl Marx moved to London where, with the loyal financial support of Frederick Engels, he endured hunger, the deaths of three children and his wife's nervous breakdown, spending most of the next two decades in the British Museum, immersed in research for his great historical analysis of capitalism. "Marx himself modestly described Das Kapital as a continuation of his Zur Kritik des Politischen Oekonomie, 1859. It was in fact the summation of his quarter of a century's economic studies. The 'Athenaeum' reviewer of the first English translation (1887) later wrote: 'Under the guise of a critical analysis of capital, Karl Marx's work is principally a polemic against capitalists and the capitalist mode of production, and it is this polemical tone which is its chief charm.' The historical-polemical passages, with their formidable documentation from British official sources, have remained memorable; and, as Marx. wrote to Engels while the volume was still in the press, 'I hope the bourgeoisie will remember my carbuncles all the rest of their lives.' Carbuncles, financial embarrassment and political preoccupations of many kinds hampered Marx's work on Das Kapital, which he would never have completed but for the material and moral support of Engels." (PMM 359). "In his funeral eulogy for Karl Marx, Engels concluded that 'Marx was above all a revolutionary. It is doubtful that any figure in history has inspired more violently contradictory opinions than Karl Marx" (Downs, 22). "Only this first part of Marx's magnum opus appeared in his lifetime," with its publication in German in 1867 (PMM 359). The remainder was constructed by Engels from Marx's posthumous papers. Containing Marx's central concept of surplus value, this first edition in English is translated from the third German edition of Moore and Aveling, is edited by Engels and incorporates substantial revisions Marx made for the first French translation (1872-5). Although Engels published the German edition of volume II in 1885, his preface notes that a translation of it without volume III was necessarily incomplete; the German edition of volume III did not appear until 1894. Draper II:M129; ST/M5. Bookplates of Manchester Reform Club with penciled notations.Interiors very fresh with only a few leaves roughly opened, closed tear to one leaf (I:337) expertly repaired, light expert restoration to original cloth.

Item Description: London: Swan Sonnenschein & Co., 1887, 1887. First English edition. Two volumes. 8vo. xxxii, 364; (ii), 365-816 pp. Original American state binding of dark green cloth, gilt titled to the spines with the name of Sonnenschein's American agent, J. Bordollo of New York, at the feet, the contemporary booksellers' ticket of Koelling, Klappenbach & Kenkel of Chicago to the corners of the front pastedowns and an early pencilled ownership inscription of a Chas. Cook to the front free endpapers. Both volumes neatly recased, a very small puncture to the head of the upper joint of volume I though not causing any stress on the binding, an excellent set. The first volume of Karl Marx's groundbreaking work was published in German in 1867 with a second edition in 1873. The author died before the third edition could be issued with Engels stepping in to bring it to completion in 1883 using Marx's notes for his extensive revisions for the earlier first French edition. Engels compiled and edited Volumes II and III from Marx's papers and these appeared in 1885 and 1894. In this period Engels was also able to oversee this translation of the first part, its first appearance in the English language. The translation was carried out by Moore, well connected in British socialist circles, he translated the Communist Manisfesto a year later under Engels editorship. He was ably assisted by Aveling - the partner of Eleanor Marx, the youngest daughter of the author, who was also enlisted to check the quotations used in the work. Printing and the Mind of Man, 359.

Item Description: Paris: Maurice Lachatre et Cie., [1875]., 1875. 351,[1]pp. Quarto. Recent cloth, gilt label. Portrait. Pictorial title- page. Alternate pictorial title from first wrapper of parts issue. Facsimile letter. Text in double columns. Modest foxing early and late, some hand smudges and a few marginal nicks to first two leaves, but generally a very good copy. First edition in book form of the first translation into French of the first volume of DAS KAPITAL, first issued in parts from 1872-75. The translation was undertaken by M.J. Roy, with the intimate collaboration of Marx himself, who acknowledges the importance of his own substantive revisions in his postscript to the text (dated London 28 April 1875), emphasizing the independence of this text from that of the first edition. This printing includes rather ornate engraved head and tail pieces (somewhat out of character with the text itself), earning it the curious sobriquet of the "first illustrated edition." This copy has the following features which are generally taken to indicate the first issue: a) "1er livraison" and "Prix de la livraison: dix centimes" at the lower corners of the engraved title; b) engravings of buildings, a city square and obelisk on main title; c) ornate imprint of "typographie Lahure" on verso of title; and d) the text of a letter from Maurice Lachatre to Marx on the verso of the facsimile of Marx's letter to him. These features were either altered or omitted from the second "issue" of ca. 1878 issued under the imprint of the LIBRAIRIE DU PROGRESS. When the first translation into English was undertaken ten years later, Moore and Aveling, under Engels's editorial direction, incorporated the important revisions published first in this edition into their text.

Item Description: 1908. MARX, Karl. Capital: A Critique of Political Economy. Chicago: Charles H. Kerr, 1908-09. Three volumes. Thick octavo, original maroon publisher's cloth. $1200.Early mixed multi-volume edition in English, with first edition of Volume III, second editions of Volumes I-II, this work considered the definitive English edition, including the first volume written by Marx and the second and third volumes written by Frederich Engels from Marx's notes, in original gilt-lettered publisher's cloth."It is doubtful that any figure in history has inspired more violently contradictory opinions than Karl Marx. In his funeral eulogy for Marx, Engels concluded that 'Marx was above all a revolutionary" (Downs, 22). Expelled from Paris in 1844, Marx moved to London where, with Engels' support, he endured poverty and family tragedy, spending decades researching his defining analysis of capitalism. Upon publication of Marx's masterpiece in Hamburg, 1867, the International Working Men's Association officially named Das Kapital the "Bible of the working class." Only the first volume of the work was completed and published in Marx's lifetime, with the remainder constructed by Engels from Marx's posthumous papers. "Marx described Das Kapital as a continuation of his Zur Kritik des Politischen Oekonomie, 1859. The 'Athenaeum' reviewer of the first English [edition] later wrote: 'Under the guise of a critical analysis of capital, Karl Marx's work is principally a polemic against capitalists and the capitalist mode of production, and it is this polemical tone which is its chief charm. [Marx] wrote to Engels while the volume was still in the press, 'I hope the bourgeoisie will remember my carbuncles all the rest of their lives" (PMM 359). Das Kapital's English translations have a complex history. As Untermann, editor of this edition, notes, "The first English translation of the first volume of Capital was edited by Engels and published in 1886. Marx had in the meantime made some changes in the text of the 2nd German edition and of the French translation, both of which appeared in 1873, and he had intended to superintend personally the edition of an English version. But the state of his health interfered with this plan. Engels utilised his notes and the text of the French edition of 1873 in the preparation of a 3rd German edition, and this served as a basis for the 1st edition of the English translation. Owing to the fact that the title page of this English translation (Swan Sonnenschein [1887]) did not distinctly specify that this was but volume I, it has often been mistaken for the complete work, in spite of the fact that the prefaces of Marx and Engels clearly pointed to the actual condition of the matter. In 1890, four years after the publication of the 1st English edition, Engels edited the proofs for a 4th German edition of volume I and enlarged it still more after repeated comparison with the French edition and with manuscript notes of Marx. But the Swan Sonnenschein edition did not adopt this new version in its subsequent English issues. The American edition will be the first complete English edition of the entire Marxian theories of Capitalist Production. It will contain all three volumes of Capital in full."

Item Description: Paris: Guillaumiin & Cie., 1893, 1893. Small octavo (144 x 90 mm). Original light brown ribbed cloth, spine and front cover lettered in black. Lower corner of front cover bumped. Paper stock lightly browned throughout as usual, portrait lightly foxed; a very good copy. Frontispiece portrait of Marx. First edition of this selection from Marx's Capital, published in the series Petite bibliothèque économique française et étrangère, the product of a surprising collaboration. Lafargue, a founder of the French socialist party and later Marx's son-in-law, of all the French Marxist writers closest to German orthodoxy, made the selection of the extracts. Pareto, whose economic and sociological views by no means coincided with those of Marx, provided the lengthy introduction. Einaudi 3771; Mattioli 2285; Sraffa 3881. Bookseller Inventory # 105286
