G.G. | 217 comments Might I trouble a librarian to add a publication date (as opposed to a date edition published) to the entry for this edition of A Place I've Never Been please? It shows up on my shelves as "Date of Publication unknown".
Many thanks in advance!

Wonderful! Alas, I don't read Spanish and read the UK Penguin edition in English, with the cover as shown in my original post--but never mind!

Abcdarian | 19829 comments As the Spanish was a translation, it can't have been the first edition. I think 1989 is a mistake and the 1990 English (Viking) edition is the first. Even though WorldCat lists that Spanish one as 1989, they say on this page http://www.worldcat.org/wcidentities/... "46 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in 10 languages". The author's web page lists it as Viking 1990; Amazon lists the Viking hardcover from Sept. 1, 1990 as the first edition: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/067...

Thank you Abcdarian: I'm sure you're right and the 1989 date is an error on WorldCat!
