Lot Details
ENGELS, FRIEDRICH & KARL MARX.

Provenance: Mark Zborowski (stamps). Zborowski was an anthropologist and NKVD agent. Zborowski was embedded with the Trotskyists in Paris and is thought to have a hand in the deaths of both Trotsky and his son Lev Sedov. As an anthropologist, he co-authored Life is with People, a study of Jewish life in the shtetls of Eastern Europe before WWII.

FIRST EDITION OF MARX AND ENGELS' FIRST COLLABORATION. Marx and Engels began their lifelong friendship in the summer of 1844 while Engels was visiting Paris. The two decided to collaborate on a critique of the intellectual trend of the day, the Young Hegelians. The book received a fair amount of newspaper coverage, some drawing attention to its socialist views and one conservative newspaper wrote that "every line preaches revolt... against the state, the church, the family, legality, religion and property." The book itself is a great rarity, and we can find no examples in the auction records.
