Razvitie kapitalizma v Rossii. 1899

LENIN, Nikolai, pseud. (i.e. Vladimir Ilich Ulyanov, 1870-1924). Razvitie kapitalizma v Rossii [The Development of Capitalism in Russia]. St Petersburg: A. Leifert, 1899.

First edition of Lenin's only specifically economic work, 'the only comprehensive economic history of a country from a Marxist perspective' (The New Palgrave). 'The Development of Capitalism in Russia is an example of Lenin's acute observation of all facets of the Russian economy. Its detailed documentation of the peculiarities of Russian capitalism - peculiarities stemming from the 'simultaneous existence of the most advanced forms of industry and semi-medieval forms of agriculture' - provides a concrete answer to the questions of how it was possible for the October revolution to succeed twenty years later and to what it owed its specific features' (Walicki, A History of Russian Thought p.440ff.). IESS (1899a).

Octavo (215 x 145mm). With 3 plates (2 folding), complete with the errata leaf. Preserving the original rear wrapper and bound in contemporary quarter roan (rebacked with the original spine laid on).
