Some brief notes on Marx's Capital:

When Marx first published his Critique of Political Economy (1859) his plan was to write six volumes listed as "capital, landed property, wage-labour, the state, foreign trade, and the world market." By the end of 1863 this plan was abandoned. By 1866 Marx had created a new outline for this work:
Book I - The process of production of capital
Book II - The process of circulation of capital
Book III - Structure of the process as a whole
Book IV - On the history of the theory

The books were indeed published in the order given above but only the first book was published during Marx's life. However, the order in which the manuscripts were largely written follows this order:
Theories of Surplus Value
Capital volume one
Capital volume two
Capital volume three

The most "complete" work is volume one. Volumes two and three were edited and prepared for publication by Friedrich Engels. Theories of Surplus Value was later published by Karl Kautsky.
