“The last capitalist we hang shall be the one who sold us the rope.”

― Karl Marx

 

Capital’ is one of the most important and foundational texts on materialist capitalism, written by German economic philosopher Karl Marx. Along with the ‘Communist Manifesto’, ‘Capital’ was one of the motivating forces that propelled the exploitation of labor and unpaid capitalism in Europe. He presents structures for capitalism by means of production during economic crises and how to use technology to produce material wealth. ‘Das Kapital’, as it was originally titled, was published in separate parts, and the second and third parts were published posthumously.

 

This 1889 first American edition is exceedingly rare and valuable! Published by Appleton, this edition was edited by Samuel Moore and Edward Aveling (Marx’s son-in-law)!

    • PMM: “Marx himself modestly described Das Kapital as a continuation of his Zur Kritik de politischen Oekonomie, 1859. It was in fact the summation of his quarter of a century’s economic studies, mostly in the Reading Room of the British Museum. 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 (a chronic furunculosis victim) 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’.”
