Usually CCC then the paragraph number: CCC 1849

There are MLA guides on the net.  In general, you'd want to cite by paragraph as Spooky suggests, but if you are using a specific copy, you can cite by page number.

 

For the full reference, you'd need translator, etc., since the main text is in Latin.

Modern Language Association.

 

In academic papers, there are specific style guidelines.  The prof / instructor usually picks one of the standard formats.

 

MLA is one of the stock formats.   The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers is their standard reference.

 

More than you ever wanted to know (seriously) is here:

Citation Machine! (find it here: http://www.citationmachine.net/) All you do is plug in all the info from your book, and it'll give you the proper format for textual citations and the citation for your bibliography/works cited page. I don't see any reason why you couldn't just put in the info from whatever English copy of the CCC you have...

You also may do well to cite which edition you are citing from, as you know the second edition just came out recently.

Oh, that's right- you guys would have known that already right?
