    "Dťesse" Roland Barthes, 'Mythologies', 1957

    The Dťesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Dťesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    There is an extensive list of Citroen documentation in pdf format here:
    https://sites.google.com/site/citroenpublicationslist/
    It links to Dropbox as Greenblood posted.

    Those manuals in the photo appear to be bound reprints of the factory books and the Autobooks. The Autobooks manual is handy but expect some omissions and errors when using it with a late car.

    The Peter Russek Pocketbook, which you do not seem to have, is handy for the DS, but a bit scarce. The GS version is easy to find, but not so the DS edition.

    You seem to have prints of the two volumes of the factory '814' manual. The PDF versions of these that are available on line are updated from time to time - so it's also worth periodically downloading PDF copies.

    In addition, manual 518 from 1966 covers the early five bearing engines. Although some of the stuff in it is duplicated or superseded by the stuff in 814, 518 also contains some stuff you won't find in 814 - so it's handy to have access to a copy.

    Continuing this theme, manual 583 comes in five volumes and is from the 70s. French language only - but its got things in it that you won't find in 814.

    Lastly, download a copy of manual 843 or 844 - "Hydraulic course notes". these are useful bedtime reading if you want to understand the workings of your hydraulic system.

    For a later DS23 with EFI and A/C, you need to have the relevant supplementary pages in the manual. The pdf will have these, but they may not be in all printed copies of 814 our in circulation.

    In addition to those course notes, there are the technical guides for different models that contain a lot of handy information. For example document 639/6 is the tech data for DS23ie 1973.

    If you have EFI and are not familiar with it, please ask for advice before the fire!
