I used to know this but it escapes me… so, the first edition of Capital v1 had a different opening section (some comments on this here). Marx revised and expanded the opening later, incorporating an appendix into those opening chapters. I know at some point I ran across a citation for an english translation of the first version of the opening section of volume 1, but now I can’t find. I’m once again intensely curious about this and interested in reading the first edition intro. Does this ring any bells for anyone? Any help finding this text?
