The price of the MEGA2 volumes is unfortunately rather high, varying from 128,- Euro
(for the volumes which have appeard before 1989) to 168 or 178,- Euro (e.g. for the
volumes II/12, II/14, II/15 on "Capital" which have recently appeared), volumes from the
third section with the correspondence of Marx and Engels (including the letters they got)
rate at 158,- Euro. (More details at

The appearance is still the same as in the time when the MEGA was published by
Dietz-Verlag. Only the blue is a bit more dark, but both books forming a volume, text
and apparatus, are bound in blue linen, with two red bands on the back and the letters
written in gold. I think, from the outside, they have lost nothing in the new times. (From
the inside, I, of course, would argue, that they have won.)

Best, Regina
