The volumes in this series provide commentaries on each volume of text with the same number. They document how the letters have been transmitted, provide evidence of different versions and quotes and give annotations on persons and events. They contain a list, arranged according to the name of the author, of the literature mentioned directly or indirectly in the correspondence as well as an index of places and subjects. Volume 1 includes a genealogy of the Clermont and Jacobi families. The biographical research, some of which is presented here for the first time and summarized, give the knowledge of Jacobi a new basis. A text which was previously thought to be anonymous is assigned to Jacobi for the first time. Also new is the evidence that Jacobi was a member of the Düsseldorf loge La Parfaite Amitié.
