Renske | 10990 comments 1 done, except for one that is not only McTeague, but contains also an other work.

2 Each of those translations is combined with the original work, so I'm not sure what you are asking.

they are all 卡勒德.胡賽尼 works, why they didn't combine together"


Isn't 卡勒德‧胡賽尼 (without a space) the correct transliteration of his name?

I finally find out [‧]dot is different. one is smaller.
Chinese use dot (not space) between first name and last name when we translate a foreigner's name to Chinese.

Pleade combine~
Just because too many pages, publisher dismantle Chinese edition. Chinese edition don't separate selling.

I think you are right, but because a librarian separated this edition only yesterday, I'm going to ask for a second opinion, just to make sure.

Thank you! lethe, I learn much."


So do I :)

If 上+下 means vol. 1 + 2, I think it's OK to leave it.

Added 約翰.史坦貝克

Could you combine these editions, please? The second one also has a typo in the publisher's name, and I think the page number is 228 rather than 229 (although I'm not too sure; my source is my local library's online catalogue)

Thank you in advance! :)

Abcdarian | 19941 comments #24: Combined. If you are the author, and if you would like to, you can claim the author profile https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... by clicking the "Is this you? Let us know" link at the bottom of that page. When it goes through it would merge with your current personal profile page.

One is a paperback, the other a hardcover, so they are different formats. I corrected the author name on the hardcover.

lethe | 13747 comments #34 Does the Chinese edition contain both Little Women and Good Wives?


message 36: by Iris (last edited Sep 06, 2015 01:42AM) (new)

Iris Norton | 218 comments Yes.I check catalog and found I combined with wrong book.
This book has 47 chapters 512 pages.
I'm afraid that
https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...
many editions in here contains both Little Women and Good Wives.
Because Little Women#1 only about 300~380 pages.


message 37: by lethe (new)

lethe | 13747 comments I separated & combined the Chinese edition: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

It takes a braver person than I am to check the page counts of all the other editions :)
