Rafael da Silva (morfindel) | 1346 comments This edition must be in portuguese https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

The doubt: this edition have no cover, no pages, no year and no ratings. What edition it should be? It should be merged?

Abcdarian | 19392 comments This has the right publisher and is on AbeBooks, which we can use as a source: https://www.abebooks.co.uk/9788528903...

I think it would be better to add those details than to just merge it with the only other GR edition published by Hemus, many years earlier (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...).

Just my opinion. :-)

Rafael da Silva (morfindel) | 1346 comments But this edition have no data. How someone can know for sure what edition it is? But if someone want to fix it, please do it.

Agreed. What little info there is on this record, was added by different people. But the policy is: when in doubt, don't merge (or combine, whatever the case may be).

Since the edition on AbeBooks is not listed yet on GR (not with those ISBNs, anyway) and someone did add Hemus as the publisher, I think it's OK to complete it with the details from AbeBooks. If it's another edition than was originally intended, they should have added more details themselves.

Abcdarian | 19392 comments Once I added the ISBNs, found that edition on amazon.com and added description & larger view of cover from there.

Marcos Kopschitz | 98 comments Very interesting. I agree with the actions taken.
Just as an additional information, here's my edition for "Cinco Semanas em Balão".

Notice that the cover art is the same style of this Hemus book, but it is from another publisher and earlier. I'd say (just guessing) Hemus took the collection over from Matos Peixoto.
