> * Added to the Marx-Engels Archive:
> Marx's Economic Manuscripts of 1861
>   Written Aug 1861 and March 1862, at which point Marx abandoned the
> work to take up what became known as Theories of Surplus Value
> (Currently nearing completion on MIA courtesy of Hans Ehrbar), this was
> to be Chapter Three of Contribution to the Critique of Political
> Economy, on capital. Marx returned to the work in January 1863, and
> abandoned it again in July to begin what finally became Capital. Thus
> this manuscript is the immediate predecessor of Capital. It deals mainly
> with Marx's concepts of capital, relative and absolute surplus value,
> with an important digression on Productive Labour. The manuscript breaks
> off in a consideration of the role of machinery, where Marx will pick up
> again in January 1863.
>   The only previous publication of this manuscript is in Volume 30 of
> http://marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1861/economic/index.htm
