Rafael da Silva (morfindel) | 1362 comments These books https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5... were combined with these https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4... but they were separated.

But if they cannot be combined, please, add the original publication date as 1977, it was when Patrick Ford translated it.

Empress (the_empress) It seems one is called 'The Mabinogion' and the other is 'The Mabinogi and Other Medieval Welsh Tales', where "and other medieval Welsh tales" would imply the content differs.

When was the edition that Mr Ford translated published? That would be the original publishing date I believe. That edition needs to have the same content as the translated editions to qualify as orig. pub. date.

Rafael da Silva (morfindel) | 1362 comments My research showed me that 1977 was the original publication of these content by Ford in that way. I have not found early editions for that.

Not exactly. It needs to have nothing published later, but it could have only parts and still qualify for that original pub date.

Rafael da Silva (morfindel) | 1362 comments So, you would not add the original publication date?

No, it would have the same original pub date.
