We also want all of these works in the library individually, so if anyone fancies taking on this mammoth task (or part of it, if it were split between a bunch of people it wouldn't take very long) it would be much appreciated!

i'm familiar with this edition, and have done some editing over at the marxists archive a few years ago. I have time to spare, and can volunteer.

that would be brilliant!

What you can do is just click "add child page" to add texts to this archive. I have added volume 1 as an example. So to add texts to volume 1 just go to the Volume 01 page, then click "add child page".

To add subsequent volumes, go back to this front page, click "add child page" and create a page for Volume 02 and so on.

To copy the texts across easily, you can just go to the texts on our archive or any of the mirrors, right click on the page and click "view source", then copy the HTML straight into the body field of the libcom articles. They may look a bit messed up, but don't worry that's just because an admin will have to do is change the Input Format to be Full HTML (as we can't give Full HTML permissions to people we don't know. On this note if you can have someone or some group vouch for you then we can give you full HTML permissions. Send me a private message for more info)

any help with this would be really appreciated! And if you need any help or support you can ask here or in our feedback forum. We have a guide to posting content already here as well: http://libcom.org/notes/content-guidelines

I'll get started shortly. I assume we will primarily want the individual works (as opposed to e.g. small newspaper articles) in html format, I'll post a few from volume one, and you can see how it goes. I have worked with the epub editing app Sigil as well, so might possibly create .epub versions as well at some point.

I read the entire Marx/Engels Werke auf deutsch in my youth. It took years

Oh no, you really want everything? Does this mean, eg, Marx's awful adolescent romantic poetry too?

I failed to begin at the very beginning sad
As a result, on this page the link to "Preface to MECW Volume 1" comes after "Leading Article in No. 179...", whereas it should come before it, directly after "General Introduction"

Thanks

Perhaps there are a few things that can wait until we get to the end, at least I am working under that assumption

Anyone know the place where he speaks about Bakunin and the Bakunists of the First International?

Yeah, on this note if you can have someone or some group vouch for you then we can give you full HTML permissions.
