Strack and Billerbeck via Internet Archive

The Internet Archive has PDF scans freely available three volumes of Hermann Strack and Paul Billerbeck’s Kommentar zum Neuen Testament aus Talmud und Midrasch (München: Beck, 1922–1961):

Each of the files is reasonably large (75.7–81.5 MB). So, they may take some time to load on slower connections or browsers.

As a side note, these PDFs cover the whole New Testament. But, the SBL Handbook of Style notes a 6-volume edition of Strack and Billerbeck’s work (§6.4.7). Does anyone with better knowledge of the 6-volume version know whether (a) volumes 4–6 have contents beyond those of volumes 1–3 listed above, (b) the 6-volume version is simply a different printing of the 3-volume version, or (c) something else?

    1. Okay. I was wondering if that might’ve been the case and the reason they don’t also seem to be available openly in PDFs. Thanks so much.
