Codex | 3400 comments #1: Combined.


message 5: by lethe (new)

lethe | 14836 comments #3 corrected author name and combined, including three books with a considerably smaller page count (less than 100)*.

#4 corrected author name and combined.

(*since abbreviated editions are also combined with full works even if there is a difference of >1000 pages)


message 8: by Codex (new)

Codex | 3400 comments #6: Combined. Some covers added (from Amazon); author name amended (several).


message 9: by Codex (new)

Codex | 3400 comments #7: Combined. Amendments to author/editor details (from WorldCat).


message 10: by Dot (new)

Dot | 139 comments Thanks!

These ones are a bit of a mess - Seaver published it and then Letchworth revised it, and Mary Jemison herself is mostly not credited as the author:

Sandra | 26901 comments #10 Seavers' all combined & author profile fixed. Letchworth remains as he is on the cover
#11 done
#12 not done - the poems selected for both books would need to be the same and also they have different authors
#13 done & also others combined
#14 done

Another request:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
(Exactly the same book and the same edition.)

Argh, I wish more librarians would be that careful. That first book has been combined with a lot of editions it shouldn't be combined with, including a duplicate of the second book (as I found out when I had corrected all the mistakes including the incomplete ISBN of that second book). :(

Sandra | 26901 comments Thanks lethe :)


message 20: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 26901 comments #18 combined & no info edition merged.


message 21: by Sam (new)

Sam Quixote (samquixote) | 376 comments Re #14, it doesn't look like those three were combined but rather two deleted with one left untouched?

Yeah, that's why I wondered if the Bly translation needed to be combined as well. Thanks for working on it.


message 23: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 26901 comments It's a caching issue I think - if you click on all editions they are there. They are certainly all there on the combine page :)

That last one has the author as Keith Nettle, but it's the Maugham book - though it's a student edition and I don't know what the difference is:

message 32: by Codex (new)

Codex | 3400 comments #27: Combined.
#28: Combined (ASIN B01D3U6278: author name amended to “W. Somerset Maugham”.)
#29: Combined (author name normalised; strange ISBN & publisher for My life in the convent: Or The marvellous personal experiences of Margaret L. Shepherd (Sister Magdalene Adelaide), consecrated penitent of the Arno’s Court Convent, Bristol, England—?!)


message 33: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 26901 comments #31 done
#32 done, though combined not merged

Having a look at #30


message 34: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 26901 comments #30 Done. Various incorrect author pages merged, books combined. The last one was indeed Maugham's book, Nettle provided an introduction.


message 38: by Dot (new)

Dot | 139 comments Please combine, and correct author name on the second:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...


message 39: by Dot (new)

Dot | 139 comments I think these need to be combined:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

The ISBN on the second one leads to this, which is inconclusive:

Thanks, Sandra!


message 43: by Geo (rain) (new)

Geo (rain) | 34 comments I was wondering if these should be combined. They're the same, but the first is in Spanish:

If I'm wrong, sorry! :)

The second one has the author's name wrong (it's Iyer, not Ayer)
