Ayshe | 3032 comments I'll look into merging profiles/moving books, but regarding the "description of drivel " I think it comes from publisher(s). There are a lot of these around and it is just one of the issues with the public domain publishers.

Moderators/higher ups are probably aware :) I've been thinking whether to post in the Feedback group as suggestion to remove such descriptions when importing, but lack the energy. You can post yourself: https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/... if you want to.

Description says: "retains many of the original chapters" so I think they can be counted as editions of the 1937 one and combined them.
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... are volume 1 and 2 and should remain separate from the main work.

Authors corrected, descriptions changed and cover replaced.

No, not due to reading you :) just general "I have to explain and then someone will reply something and it will still remain this way" reluctance.
