The following numbers are those of the journal, The Communist Internatonal for 1929 . No Editors Listed. All Were Published – the Communist Party of Great Britain at 16 King Street, London, WC2.

Note Regarding v0lume Names:

the First Series of Communist International bore no name or v0lume number. It includes issues numbers 1 - 30. Published in London 1919 - Early 1924. it is often referred to as the “Original Series”or as the “Old Series”. the latter because the next series is officially called the “New Series”. We are calling this volume 1 in the file names of the pdf files provided here.

The Second Series of Communist International stated on it that it was the “New Series”. It includes issues numbers 1-23. This spans early 1924 through early 1926. we are noting it as “New Series” in the v0lume names (because it calls itself that in print), but also calling “Volume 2”.

After that, the Communist International began assigning volume numbers to subsequent runs of issue numbers. Starting with Volume 3 for October, November, and December of 1926. Hence our back-numbering of Volume 2 and Volume 1. It Wasn’t Until Volume 8, 1931, that a given v0lume number was assigned to a single year of publication of CI.

Here is a text file Listing the series / volume numbers and dates of issues of CI.

Note: things get a bit muddled after 1934, when ci began to be published both in London and in New York City, with different content in same numbered issues, and even different issue numbers. Our listing is primarily if not entirely of the London-published issues.
