Eleven works from the library of Eleanor Marx Aveling.
8vo and 12mo. 11 volumes, mostly in unsophisticated wrappers, stored loosely in contemporary green cloth covers (138 x 205 mm) and preserved within a green half morocco solander case.
Unique collection of eleven early, extremely rare publications by Marx and Engels, including English, Italian and Polish translations of the Communist Manifesto, Russian and Spanish translations of "Misère de la philosophie", as well as English and Italian editions of "Discours sur la question du libre échange". From the personal collection of Karl Marx's youngest daughter Eleanor ("Tussy") Marx (1855-98), the companion of the socialist Edward Aveling. One of the works in this collection bears her autograph ownership on the title page, while three others are inscribed to her, one by Friedrich Engels. An outstanding ensemble.
