Several of those sites are not sources we can use for bookcovers or other book data. Amazon is ok, but not any other booksellers. So not Tower, Eastern Gift Shop, Hidden Mysteries, and it looks like Logos is a problem as well.

Publishers and author sites are always fine, though.

Ren | 688 comments Done most of them with images from Amazon. For #2 and #11 I am not sure that the images you linked can be used (the cover should be from the publisher or Amazon), if you can provide alternate links or scan the cover yourself I'll put them up.

Could somebody also put the "A" in the title into lower case and remove the "(Civil Society)" which is not actually part of the title.

Z-squared | 8580 comments re 7, it looks like someone got the cover for you. i have edited the title as well.

Eoghan Rua | 12 comments Could you also space out the title properly "D. P. Moran"

Z-squared | 8580 comments re 9, we can't take images from librarything, nor could i find a cover image on amazon or worldcat. i did, however, properly format the title.

(2) Cover: http://www.deburcararebooks.com/genea... (the actual cover is just plain green, but this is how it is depicted on the publisher's website)

Could you also properly format the title as "Leabhar Genealach: The Great Book of Irish Genealogies." The correct way to spell the editor's name is also Nollaig Ó Muraile. Thanks.
