Bea There are two editions for ISBN 1560985410 on Worldcat. One edition shows 384 pages; the other shows 450 pages. Neither exactly match the GR entry since the 384 page edition was printed by Smithsonian books in 2007 rather than 2005 per Worldcat and the 450 page edition was printed by Smithsonian Institute Press in 1991.

Both books are found on GR, so perhaps yours is the second one.

2005 copy

1991 copy

In the future it would be more helpful if you linked to the specific book itself.

The ISBN is from the version I have which is the 1991 Smithsonian version.

Bea, neither of your links work. Regardless, the only record on Goodreads with ISBN 1560985410 is the 2005 edition: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/9...

(The 1991 edition on Goodreads has a different ISBN.)

On WorldCat, one record is actually a joint one for multiple ISBNs, and has a different cover. The one with the same cover as here also has multiple ISBNs, but since it agrees with the count provided by the user, I added that to the record.
