Does anyone know? I'm looking for the month, but the day would be helpful as well. Thank you so much in advance!

this wiki says 14th of September, but whether that is the German edition or the English translation I do not know. Why do you want to know the specifics? are you going to have a Capital birthday party?

Arbeiten, the English translation was only published after Marx's death.
