Barbara VA (barbarava) | 3 comments Please add this first edition to the current listing.

Current Listing: ISBN 05448442207 (978058442203)

Title: Together: Annals of an Army Wife.
Author: Katherine Tupper Marshall
Format: Hard Cover
Publisher: Tupper and Love, Inc.
Copyright: 1946
Pages: 308
Description: When widowed Katherine Tupper Brown told her sons that she was inviting an Army officer named Colonel Marshall to visit them at their home on Fire Island, the lads at once smelt a rat. "If it makes you happier, mother, it is all right with me," said Clifton (14). "I don't know about that. . . ." muttered Allen (12). But soon afterwards, the future Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army received a brief, secret note from Allen: "I hope you will come to Fire Island. Don't be nervous, it is O.K. with me. (Signed) A friend in need is a friend indeed. ..." A few months later, Lieut. Colonel George Catlett Marshall became Allen's stepfather.

Katherine Marshall has written what she frankly calls "this homespun account" because "General Marshall has told me that he will never write his own memoirs, his knowledge of people and events being too intimate for publication." The result is a friendly, chatty, modest collection of data and trivia that rarely goes beyond the bounds of domesticity.

for the link that you had posted, I seen the differences forom what Barbara had posted to what was on the book page, I looked at Amazon and the information on there is what is the same as what is on the link but It's not the origanal book, it states on Amazon that it's

This book is a facsimile reprint and may contain imperfections such as marks, notations, marginalia and flawed pages.

so i'm not sure if Barbara was wanting it to be updated to the Orignal book information?

message 5: by Daisy Sloan (new)

Daisy Sloan | 17 comments IDK. When I searched on the ISBN she provided (on google) it didn't come up with a book anywhere.

I'm not sure what to do so I've not done anything.

Robin (robin88) | 9 comments This is the link that I have found for the Edition she is refering to:

Also the ISBN that Barbara posted had one to many numbers in it

this is the correct one


0548442207, 9780548442203

But that ISBN will only direct you to the Reprint Edition. Not the original.

Lastly there are at least 5 editions to this book that I have been able to find.

From the book listed in #2
054_8442207 9780548442203

the _ marks the errors in ISBNs (the existing record was wonky so added the missing digit to the ISBN10)

The original book pre-dates ISBNs by approximately 20 years, so will create a record without using the WorldCat record that matches the rest of the information in #1.

Done - if you want to switch the edition you are reading, you can.

Ron Sadowski | 9 comments 2 days ago I added a new edition of "The Moon is Down" by Steinbeck. I can't find it in the edition listings. Can someone check and see it it was uploaded and if not tell me how to get it listed.

Thank you all! Yes, I saw the edition that was listed in GR. I had found a hard cover autographed first edition that I wanted to combine with the listed reprint so that I could save the corect page numbers for a challenge. I do not have a dust jacket and the only photo that I saw was on a booksellers site.
