The German PDF facsimile versions come from Google Books and other public domain sources. The HTML versions come from the Deutsches Textarchiv, Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften which have been put online under a Creative Commons License. <http://www.deutschestextarchiv.de>. These HTML versions have been difficult to edit as they have been "over coded" in my view in order to try to replicate the original page layout of the books. I have done my best to simplify them and make them easier to read and search.

The revised 4th ed. (1890) of volume 1 comes from an East German edition of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, Werke, Band 23 (Berlin/DDR: Dietz Verlag, Berlin/DDR 1962), S. 11-802, which is the Public Domain. Online version: <http://www.mlwerke.de/me/me23/me23_000.htm>. HTML and facs. PDF.
