Das Kapital, also called Capital. A Critique of Political Economy (in German: Das Kapital. Kritik der politischen Oekonomie) was first published in 1867 by Karl Marx.
Capital, Volume I (1867) was published in Marx’s lifetime, but he died in 1883 before completing the manuscripts for Capital, Volume II (1885) and Capital, Volume III (1894) which friend and collaborator Friedrich Engels edited and published as the work of Marx. The first translated publication of Das Kapital was in Imperial Russia in March 1872. It was the first foreign publication and the English edition appeared in 1887. Despite Tsarist censorship proscribing “the harmful doctrines of socialism and communism”, the Russian censors considered Das Kapital as a “strictly scientific work” of political economy, the content of which did not apply to monarchic Russia, where “capitalist exploitation” had never occurred and was officially dismissed, given “that very few people in Russia will read it, and even fewer will understand it”. Nonetheless, Marx acknowledged that Russia was the country where Das Kapital “was read and valued more than anywhere”. For instance, the Russian edition was the fastest selling as 3,000 copies were sold in one year while the German edition took five years to sell 1,000, therefore the Russian translation sold fifteen times faster than the German original.
