Notes about the German versions of this volume:
There was no offical stenographer at these lectures. The audiece was about 100 young people aged 18-25. Presumably their notes were the source of the intital texts. The 1st edition was an undated private printing from late 1925. It had numerous typos and many sections did not parse in a comprehensible manner. It was followed very quickly by a second private printing issued by the Youth Section at the Goetheanum in numbered copies. The second edition was presumably improved based on supplamentary notes that are no longer extant. The second edition was edited by Marie Steiner in 1947 for a reprint, and that version was the basis for the first public release, currently considered the 3rd edition, in 1953. That version was reprinted 1964, 1979, and 1988.
