About This Item

The Hague: Liebers & Co,, [1881]. The rare first Dutch edition First appearance in Dutch of Marx's Lohnarbeit und Kapital, with a flattering dedication to Marx by the translator and compiler, Ferdinand Domela Nieuwenhuis (1846-1919), a Dutch socialist. "Originally a Lutheran pastor (1870-1879), he left the church, founded the socialist weekly Recht voor Allen (1879). He played a leading part in developing the Social-Democratic movement in the Netherlands; was elected to parliament for a term (1881-1891); disappointed in legislating social reform, he turned to anarchism (1890s). He authored a number of propaganda brochures." (Draper: The Marx-Engels Glossary, p. 154.) Nieuwenhuis sent a copy of the work to Marx on 8 January, 1881, Marx replying in a letter of 22 February in which he expresses a desire to make a list of changes and corrections for a second edition, but regrets that personal difficulties prevent him from so doing. A second edition was published in 1889. Octavo (204 x 126 mm.), viii, 82 pages. Disbound, preserved in a glassine wrapper under acetate. Housed in a black cloth flat-back box by the Chelsea Bindery. Spine re-glued. Paper stock lightly browned, a few small marginal chips, occasional pencil markings; a very good copy. WorldCat locates 5 copies in the Netherlands, 3 in Germany, and 1 in the USA.
