On looking at Ludo Rocher's "The Puranas" in "A History of Indian Literature" (1986) I see he also has a bibliography for each purana he lists and a list of editions and also a general bibliography.Harry Spier
What I would find useful is if someone could list the critical editions or even editions made from multiple manuscripts of Puranas.Harry Spier

A critical edition of the Vāyu-purāṇa is underway at the Oriental Institute, Vadodara.
The Ānandāśrama editions used multiple manuscripts. These include the Padma (1894), Brahma (1895), Agni (1900), Vāyu (1905), and Matsya (1907) purāṇas.
Of the Bibliotheca Indica editions, at least the Vāyu edited by Rajendralala Mitra (2 volumes, 1880, 1888) used multiple manuscripts.
A composite edition of the Bhāgavata-purāna with three or four commentaries is Śrīmad Bhāgavata Mahāpurāṇam, edited by P. Radhakrishna Sarma, and N. C. V. Narasimhacharya, 12 volumes (in 14 parts?). Tirupati: Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams, 1989-2005 (not yet completed?).
A composite edition of the Brahma-purāṇa is found in Sanskrit Indices and Text of the Brahmapurāṇa, by Peter Schreiner and Renate Söhnen. Purāṇa Research Publications, Tübingen, 1. Wiesbaden: Otto Harrassowitz, 1987.
According to the extensive researches of R. C. Hazra, most of the purāṇas now extant are not the original ones. This is based on his gathering quotations from the purāṇas found in the old smṛti-nibandhas, and on descriptions of the contents of the purāṇas given in some of the purāṇas. The results of his researches were published in a series of journal articles, and mostly included in his book, Studies in the Purāṇic Records on Hindu Rites and Customs. He concluded that only seven of the now extant mahā-purāṇas can legitimately claim to be the original ones: Mārkaṇḍeya, Vāyu, Brahmāṇḍa, Viṣṇu, Matsya, Bhāgavata, and Kūrma, and even the Kūrma with considerable qualifications. Of the other eleven erstwhile mahā-purāṇas, he discovered the original Agni-purāṇa in manuscripts under the name Vahni-purāṇa. This was edited and published after his lifetime:
Vahni-Purāṇam, also referred to as Āgneya-Purāṇam, edited by Anasuya Bhowmik. Bibliotheca Indica Series, no. 336. Kolkata: The Asiatic Society, 2012 (includes as an Introduction the extensive 2-part article by Rajendra Chandra Hazra titled, “Studies in the Genuine Āgneya-Purāṇa alias Vahni-Purāṇa,” originally published in 1953 and 1954).
