PMM 359 (first ed. vol. I only); Rubel 633, 635-636 - SECOND EDITION of Vol. I and FIRST EDITION of Vol. II OF ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BOOKS OF THE MODERN ERA. Only the first edition of vol. I was published in Marx's lifetime; his friend and supporter Friedrich Engels edited and published volume II in 1885 and volume III in 1894. "The history of the twentieth century is Marx's legacy. Stalin, Mao, Che, Castro -- the icons and monsters of the modern age have all presented themselves as his heirs. Whether he would recognize them as such is quite another matter... Within one hundred years of his death half the world's population was ruled by governments that professed Marxism to be their guiding faith. His ideas have transformed the study of economics, history, geography, sociology and literature" (Wheen). Marx's great polemic was the summation of his quarter of a century of economic studies, mostly at the British Museum. - Visit our website for additional images and information.
