Vol. 2 of "Capital", published by Engels in 1885, will probably appear in 2007 (MEGA-
volume II/13). There is also a draft for this publication in 1885, a manuscript which
Engels dictated to his secretary Oscar Eisengarten. It contains the compilation which
Engels drew up from Marx's manuscripts. It will make up MEGA-volume II/12 and is
expected to appear at the end of 2005; this volume will also offer a list with differences
between the text prepared by Engels and Marx's manuscripts.

Marx's manuscripts for Book 2 of "Capital", dating from 1868 to 1870/71 and 1878 to
1881, will probably be published in 2006 (MEGA-volume II/11). MEGA-volume II/4.1
with Marx's draft for Book 2 from 1865 has already appeared in 1988. Besides, there
are several manuscripts with regard to Book 2 and 3, dating from 1867/68, which are
expected to be published in 2007 (MEGA-volume II/4.3).
