Two multipage sets of text were inadvertently omitted from the volume of the Karl Marx, Frederick Engels: Collected Works (MECW) that contains Volume I of Marx’s Capital. In 2009, the Errata providing the missing pages will be distributed to libraries possessing the MECW . To view the Errata online, click here.
The text of volume I of Capital that can be found online in the Marx/Engels Collected Works section of the Marxists Internet Archive under volume 35 of the Collected Works does not have these pages missing. Before volume 35 had been printed, this text had been copied from the three-volume edition of Capital published in 1965 by Progress Publishers (Moscow), reprints of which were subsequently copublished by them with International Publishers (NY) and Lawrence & Wishart (UK). The text for the missing pages in this errata was taken from that edition.
