Where appropriate, references to Hobbes's works are given in the form of the chapter and article number (e.g. 'De cive, V.7', 'De corpore XI.2'); these are equally valid for all editions. For De cive, the text cited is the edition by Warrender, and the translation that by Tuck and Silverthorne (except where otherwise stated). For other printed works by Hobbes, I normally cite from the first edition; where the work is not divided into chapters and articles, I also give a page-reference to EW or OL.
