I am not either. I have Das Kapital on my book shelf introduced by
Ernest Mandel and translated by Ben Fowkes. It is a pretty good edition
(Vintage books, A division of Random House, NY). It was assigned to a
Marxist theoory reading group I was part of at grad school here.

The last edition has an intro by Hobsbawm.
