First Swedish edition of "Das Kapital". The Social Democrat Rickard Sandler had been tasked with preparing a translation as early as 1912, and the Bolshevist-leaning Swedish banker Olof Aschberg donated 6000 crowns toward the project. However, Sandler's service in various political offices (including that of Prime Minister) forced him to postpone the publication for nearly two decades.

Slight waterstaining to the outer margins of the first few pages in the final volume, otherwise perfect.


Not in Marx-Engels Erstdrucke. Cf. PMM 359.
