Rosa Luxemburg in the HathiTrust Digital Library

The HathiTrust Digital Library contains full-text scans of three Rosa Luxemburg classics. Two U.S. editions of the Junius pamphlet are available, as well as the first U.S. edition of her critique of the Russian revolution. The latter was translated by Bertram Wolfe and published in 1940 by Workers Age, the Lovestoneite publishing house. In addition, a beautiful 1921 English-language edition (published in Berlin) of a selection of her prison letters to Sophie Liebknecht is available.
