Simon repeats, with more details, what I've already told to Michael in a
private post. Looking at both C&C 4, 1978, and at Simon's book, I found
in the editors preface to the appendix (Mike Roth and Wal Suchting) that in
fact the first version of the first edition of Capital vol. I *has* been
translated in English. They refer to Axel Davidson's translation in Marx
1972, Chapter One of Capital, Bulletin Marxist Classics Series n. 1, New
York, Labor Publications. Now, this (small) book is out of reach for me
here in Italy. Do anybody of you have it, or know some library who owns
it? Is it too much to ask for a photocopy to be sent here in Italy?
Definitely, I'll pay for having it!

By the way: in Roth's and Suchting's bibliography it is quoted also a
book edited by Albert Dragsted, Marx 1976, Value: Studies by Karl Marx,
London, New Park. Does somebody knows what is included in it?

Any advice on the English editions of Theories of Surplus Value and the
1861-63 Manuscripts?
