Ródope Amagapinyes (polylife) | 16 comments Seix Barral has this in-spanish world-contemporary-literature-book-collection, all of them with the same very-similar hardcover editions, and I couldn't help seeing that lots of the covers for them are poorly photographed (when there is a cover). So I took some time, my loyal scanner and uploaded them all to my computer: Here you have most of them in case you want to change them.

♦ No-cover entries:

♦ Wrong cover
- #34 Veinte poemas de amor y una canción desesperada/Cien sonetos de amor, Pablo Neruda [https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5... This ISBN and year of publication corresponds to this (http://i67.tinypic.com/20f83v5.png) cover.
- #48 Billar a las nueve y media, Heinrich Böll [https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...] These ISBN, year of publication and number of pages correspond to this (http://i66.tinypic.com/4dmdz.png) cover.
- #68 La destrucción o el amor/Sombra del paraíso, Vicente Aleizandre [https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... The ISBN, year of publication, and amount of pages correspond to this (http://i66.tinypic.com/2w1un1l.png) cover. Also, book title is wrong since it is a two-oeuvres compilation.


One more to go!

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments Covers added for no-cover entries. Taking a look at others. Done with message 1.

#7 La peste, Albert Camus - Got a message that ISBN 848280319X may be invalid. Can you please check your copy once?

No change for following entries as current covers look ok:
1, 4, 5, 8, 16, 18, 26, 28-30, 32

Ródope Amagapinyes (polylife) | 16 comments Regarding La Peste by Albert Camus:
ISBN 8432221678
#7 La Peste, Albert Camus
Also, I just realized it says the book is 224 pages long, when in fact there are 234.

Thank you for your work!


message 5: by Michael (new)

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments Added correct ISBN as well as updated page count (verified on worldcat) for La peste. Done with the books in message 1. Will take a look at message 2 tomorrow, if no other librarian does it by then.

Thanks for all the effort in scanning your covers :)

Please, remove Fernando Gutiérrez as a translator in #73 Mujeres enamoradas by D.H. Lawrence too. He translated #74 El gatopardo by Giuseppe Tomasi de Lampedusa, nothing to do with Women in Love.


And we are done here! :D
