Karl Marx is a renowned communist philosopher, economist, journalist and revolutionary socialist that managed to influence intellectual, political and economic history thanks to his incredible work. His three-volume book named Das Kapital is still being read in our modern times, and a very rare first signed edition of its first volume will soon be put under the hammer courtesy of Bonhams.
The first volume of this book was published while Marx was still alive, which is why it is so incredibly sought after. The one that we’re talking about is dated September 18, 1867, which means that Marx signed it just four days after it was published. Another aspect that increases the book’s value is the fact that it was gifted by Marx to his former friend, Johann Eccarius. Overall, this unique piece of history is expected to bring in between $116,334 and $174,516.
