Marx has a strong command of his text: it's been published, discussed, restructured, translated, refuted, misunderstood, clarified… he's grumpy, but kinda funny :)
N. Sieber is interesting: Professor of Political Economy in the University of Kiev, in his work “David Ricardo’s Theory of Value and of Capital,” referred to my theory of value, of money and of capital, as in its fundamentals a necessary sequel to the teaching of Smith and Ricardo. That which astonishes the Western European in the reading of this excellent work, is the author’s consistent and firm grasp of the purely theoretical position.
Sieber wrote the Russian translation of Capital. it took 130 years for Sieber to be translated from Russian, but Marx learned Russian to read Sieber. (see: here, here, here, here, here).
Paul Zarembka (with Rashika Desai), one of the editors of Revitalizing Marxist Theory for Today's Capitalism (includes above papers on Sieber); also wrote: Marxist Political Economy without Hegel: Contrasting Marx and Luxemburg to Plekhanov and Lenin discussing Hegel's role in Marx & what Sieber did with Marx's Hegel (removed it entirely w/o Marx's objection). also noting Engels warned Marx about his Hegelianisms—Marx notes in this Afterword they were criticized (plus, he already dealt with Hegel anyway)—and half of Hegelianisms in the first edition were removed in future editions.
Afterword also brings up the role of metaphysics in Marx: Marx is accused of treating economics metaphysically, but Sieber sets things straight on that one too.
