Sandra | 24697 comments Tim, from the librarian manual on page counts:

"The number of pages in a book is meant to include all content except for advertisements and preview chapters for other books. Included end material may include acknowledgments, afterwords, appendices, bibliographies, glossaries, indexes, notes, and suggested discussion questions.

Introductory material paged using roman numerals is not included in the total page count.

Books already in the database often already have page numbers, and these are occasionally incorrect. These can be corrected, but only if you have the exact book with a matching ISBN, or by using WorldCat or another site with reliable page numbering.

Most ebook formats do not have a fixed number of pages since the pagination adjusts for screen size. If the publisher provides a specific page count, that number should be reflected in our book data. For PDF-specific editions, or any other fixed page ebooks, the normal paging rules may be used. ..."

Sandra | 24697 comments So from your example the 208 pages is correct as per GR rules.
