      1. Sämtliche Werke und Briefe - Clemens Brentano, Jürgen Behrens, Wolfgang Frühwald, Detlev Lüders 1975-

        Book  Volumes 6,7 and 8 contain the three volumes of 'Des Knaben Wunderhorn.' Volume 9 is actually three volumes (9.1, 9.2, and 9.3), and each volume contains notes to the corresponding volume of 'Des Knaben Wunderhorn'. In these notes you can find the sources of every poem, along with the changes that Arnim and Brentano made to this original material. It's a colossal work of scholarship, and very absorbing!
