Thanks very much for this info. Any other offers of a subject index? CA.

Yes CA

One very great problem with Moscow is that they do not distinguish reprints
from new editions. Thus the 1985 Progress one claims simply to be
reprinting the 1954 one but as we have seen both pagination and indexing
were changed along the way as well as the publisher! And maybe other
things.

Draper (The Marx-Engels Register) gives Kerr 1906-09; FLPH 1954-59; PP
1965-67. BUt CW 37 says that FLPH V.3 was 1958

There are a lot of more or less pirated editions of Moore and Eveling. IN
one way the crucial thing is translations of which I know oly the three AR
gives.
