Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments There was a cover change done recently that I reverted. It is possible that the book was released with a new cover but the same ISBN. In such cases we create alternate-cover editions instead. I'm checking other editions (363!) to see if your cover already exists..

Nephthys | 8 comments Thank you. The correct cover is showing now. It's from an older edition with the same ISBN, so now I can make an alternate cover edition. But the thing that really bugged me was that this edition showed the cover for Ovid's Amores before.

Nephthys | 8 comments btw I just scanned the cover of one of my editions:
just in case you'd like to use it instead of the low quality image:

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments I went through all the editions and couldn't find this cover. Created an ACE here. Can you confirm page count and publication date of your copy?

message 6: by Nephthys (new)

Nephthys | 8 comments this edition:

page count: 995

publication date 2002 (reprint of the 1994 edition)

this edition:

page count: 1019
publication date 2013 (also reprint of the 1994 edition)

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments Thanks!

For the first link, the GR record points to 1994 so I'm gonna leave it at that without any changes. I see your scan and it's different to the 1994 cover for me. If you wish, you can create another ACE for 2002 edition. Since you're a GR librarian, please add the hyper link to your new ACE to the 1994 edition's description so that people who end up on 1994 edition with ISBN search can still find other covers for the same ISBN.

For the second link, I added the details.
