It is a crime that no matter how hard one searches there is NO hardcover edition of this book available, but only these very flimsy editions that turn yellow and brittle in no time. I need a copy of this book that I can use heavily without it falling apart as all penguins and vintage pb's do. Help anybody?

I give this book 3 stars - 5 stars for the original author's book, but 1 star for this typo-filled, poor translation with a long Trotskyite introduction. They should have spent more time on typos and translation than interpretation. For example, look on page 511
Mr. Baynes, of Blackburn, in a lecture published in 1858, estimates that "each real mechanical horse-power [25] will drive 450 self-acting mule spindles, with preparation, or 220 throstle spindles, or 15 looms for 40 inch cloth with the appliances for warping, sizing, &c."
Every other translation of Capital says 200 throstle spindles, not 220. And 220 throstle spindles doesn't even make any sense. This particular version of Capital is full of errors and typos like that.

I finally finished all Karl Marx had penned in the Capital series! The book is unfinished, in an extremely tempting way. Seriously, there was a line that was just started, and so it feels like SOMEONE ... Read full review
