I have this book, the main novel has 274 pages. Then there follows 'The Trial of John Jasper', a kind of proposed alternative ending and that finishes at Page 79. World Cat agrees with this. So the page count should either be 274 or 353, according to how GR would treat this particular case.

Thanks

Hi Pamela

Can you give the title as well as the ISBN number? It is a safeguard for us to make sure we are editing the right book.

Carol She's So Novel꧁꧂  | 4687 comments Thanks Pamela.

I'd like a second opinion on this. To me, the extra material looks like this edition should be separated out. It is an alternative ending to this book. It definitely at least needs to be mentioned in the description.

There is something in the award field in Greek. I'll run it through a translator site, but I may need advice from a Greek speaking librarian.


Carol She's So Novel꧁꧂  | 4687 comments Checked the Greek - it is a translator award, so allowed. :)


Carol She's So Novel꧁꧂  | 4687 comments & I have had a couple of opinions so I'm going to go with the total page count & a note in the description.
