Margaret (igem36) | 2 comments Ordered new from (and fulfilled by) Amazon. The right cover doesn't appear on Goodreads, and there is a discrepancy in the publication date.

The Watcher and Other Stories
Italo Calvino
ISBN 978-0-15-694952-1
LC Catalog number 75-9829

At the top of the CIP page it says "Copyright (C) 1971 by Harcourt, Inc.
(but the GR data gives the copyright date for this ISBN as 1975)

181 pages

Something that makes me wonder if this is a print-on-demand book: on the very last page it states: "Made in the USA. Middletown, DE. 13 May 2017". There's a barcode to the left of that statement reading 43563908R00116.

(I ordered it May 12, 2017.)

I hope a librarian can add this cover, if it is indeed a legitimate edition. Thank you!
