Z-squared | 8580 comments scratch that, i couldn't figure out if your cover pic was from an accepted source, so i used one from stanford library instead.

Z-squared | 8580 comments i did all my searches by ISBN, not by title or author. however, i did note that Augusto Fraschetti is the editor and should be listed as primary, so I've edited the GR entry accordingly. as for the cover, i can only take images from accepted sources, e.g. Amazon, Worldcat, or scanned copies of personally owned books from users.

Z-squared | 8580 comments i don't know what to tell you. the version we have here IS in italian. it DOES have Giardina as a contributor, while Fraschetti is the primary author, which i've edited Goodreads to include. this is confirmed by worldcat here:

http://www.worldcat.org/title/roma-al...

i wouldn't be surprised if the cover image i found was actually for the inside front page, but it's the only image i could access that was legally acceptable to use on Goodreads. if you could confirm the provenance of the cover image you uploaded, i could make an alternate cover edition with that instead, but other than that, there's not much i can do.

The actual image is not the cover but certainly the inside front page, I can tell you that.

Do we keep it or I delete it?

Unfortunately the cover is not on Amazon or on the publisher's site. If Moira can scan it, we can upload that

Z-squared | 8580 comments I couldn't find an actual cover image from any acceptable source. I figured the inside front page displayed by a couple university library catalogs was better than nothing, especially as it helps clear up the author/editor mess. So unless an honest-to-god scanned image is uploaded, I'm inclined to leave it unless Rivka says otherwise.

Agreed. I added a Note to make that clear, in case anyone ever has a scan of the actual cover.
