This is the first Turkish translation of Das Kapital. It was made by Ḥaydar Rifat, one of the major translators and authors of outstanding political works since the time of the late Ottoman Empire.

In 1910, he published the first Ottoman book on the socialism. It was a translation of a little known French book Le socialisme, notions élémentaires by Georges Tournaire, published only a year before, in 1909. It introduced the basics of the socialism, its faults, the participation of working women and its relation to the religion.

In the following decades Ḥaydar Rifat published books on the Bolshevism, Communism, Soviet Union and Democracy and on Mussolini.

We could not find any institutional examples on Worldcat.
