I see this record https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10377508-alla-ricerca-del-tempo-perduto-7-volumi for the box set of the entire Recherche series by Proust. The volumes were sold together, but each one of them is also on Goodreads separately:

1-https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17250604-la-strada-di-swann
2-https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17252663-all-ombra-delle-fanciulle-in-fiore
3-https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17252782-i-guermantes
4-https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17254565-sodoma-e-gomorra
5-https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17254630-la-prigioniera
6-https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17254760-albertine-scomparsa
7-https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17256795-il-tempo-ritrovato

As you can see, they are all pre-ISBN editions, with different covers. Pagination starts at 1 in each volume.

My question is, is the record for the whole box set https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10377508-alla-ricerca-del-tempo-perduto-7-volumi necessary/legit, or should it be merged into the first of the series?

Thanks

lethe | 13729 comments The box set should be kept in my opinion.

If the books were only sold as a set, official policy is not to have separate records for each book (but I would forget about that rule).
