Among the new features of this volume are the references at the head of each sermon to the page or column and volume of the Erlangen, Walch and St. Louis Walch editions in German, where each sermon in the original may be found. Erl. stands for Erlangen edition; W. for the Walch, and St. L. for the St. Louis edition. The c. and other letters referring to different editions of Luther’s complete works are according to the Erlangen edition. The number 14 on the back of the book and on the first title page correspond with the number of the same volume in the Erlangen edition.
