Ayshe | 3032 comments I checked the first two links and "date pub" is shown as unknown (as there was no "original publication date" entered when you created the records) and "date pub (ed.)" shows whatever was entered for the "published" field.

Can you provide the dates that are to be added? For cover sources requirements see: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...


message 4: by idiffer (new)

idiffer | 34 comments The dates are already provided, under "published" field or otherwise, they are visible on the book pages. If I entered them in the wrong field, well, I made a mistake.
Will check out the link about covers now.


message 5: by Ayshe (new)

Ayshe | 3032 comments Under "published" field is the edition's publication date. The books may have had earlier editions in which case the original publication date will be different.

2008

2007

These I have in physical form, so I'm sure. The rest will take googling.

cover (source: publisher site)
Also, I was dumb - the guy I put in the author field is the editor who put together this anthology of many various authors. So, author should be Various?


message 9: by Ayshe (new)

Ayshe | 3032 comments "Психологическая защита" - done, I'm not sure if http://lib.mgppu.ru is acceptable, I used this cover from amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Psychologica... (Just FYI, your own scans or photos are also fine).


message 10: by Ayshe (new)

Ayshe | 3032 comments "Психология эмоций" - no, no, actual person editor is preferred instead of Various.

Publisher's site lists 2007 as year though, can you re-check your copy? There appears to be 2004 edition, too: https://search.rsl.ru/ru/search#q=aut...


message 11: by Ayshe (new)

Ayshe | 3032 comments "The Complete Works of Ramana Maharshi" - I read that it includes “Self-Enquiry” which was published after his death in the late 1920s - so I think that will be the original pub. year (for omnibus editions it is the original pub date of the newest book it includes) but I can't find exact year.

idiffer | 34 comments "Психология эмоций"
Uh, I don't know how that happened exactly, but my book has 2008 as the only date (except smth like "signed off to print in 22.08.2007"). + the isbn is different than on the book in your link.


message 13: by idiffer (new)

idiffer | 34 comments 騎士基本理論
2007 comes up everywhere in google. Tried searching for Angel Publishing, but couldn't find it. That's the publisher wikipedia gives, but the book page has 天施出班. Baka-updates lists 天使出版 as an alternative name.

旅に出よう、滅びゆく世界の果てまで。 Tabi ni Deyou, Horobiyuku Sekai no Hate Made.
Various sources, including the jap amazon, say 2008.

Which is the ISBN your edition has? If the cover is exactly the same as the one on the publisher site (which has ISBN-13: 978-5-94723-691-0 and year: 2007) then it may be reprint. ISBN 5-94723-691-5 which is listed on rsl.ru is the ISBN-10 converted from the ISBN-13 so I think it's the same book.

This text is the same as the one I have except the forward.
Sorry for the mix-up, didn't expect these kinds of surprises from books.

But they say that for the edition that's listed. I didn't see original pub. year/first published mentioned. It was 2010 here, too and then someone removed it, I messaged the librarian in question.

2015 (link to publisher book page)

The Human Familiar
I'm lost. Amazon says the paperback was published in 2017, but no info on kindle. This author has her own publishing house/store, but there's no info there.
I also have doubts, because The Void Mage (sequel) was also published in 2017, just a couple of months later (but suffers from the same "publication date unknown" thingy).
But author is living + goodreads author.

Then I dunno what to do because I don't speak japanese.

Added the cover and orig. pub. year of 1984.

message 26: by Ayshe (new)

Ayshe | 3032 comments #25.1: Publisher site's listing is from 2013 and with different ISBN, it just needs to be added as new edition

25.2: It was auto-imported this way and it's an ebook, it might have that number of pages: 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.

idiffer | 34 comments Ok.
The maharashi complete works still do not have original published date...
Exhumation: An Epic of Existentia at one point today had a orig pub date, but then went back to being dateless.

What about The Human Familiar and The Void Mage?

Did some digging on 空ろの箱と零のマリア 4 Utsuro No Hako To Zero No Maria 4 , I don't know what kind of proof you are looking for, but 2010 is everywhere, in every database I searched such as worldcat and webcat plus.

What do you think it should be?

The log doesn't show it ever having one, but I added it as I saw "1st edition" in the amazon preview.


message 29: by Ayshe (new)

Ayshe | 3032 comments idiffer wrote: "What about The Human Familiar and The Void Mage?" Added 2017 for those.

Added 2010 as there is First edition listed in the edition field.


message 30: by idiffer (new)

idiffer | 34 comments What do you think it should be? (c)

Well, you said that it should be the date of the last published work in the compilation, and you named it, so I thought the matter was settled. I don't know the rules for these things.


message 31: by Ayshe (new)

Ayshe | 3032 comments Here is one place the rule is mentioned: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

I also said I can't find exact year. I can't add something approximate.


message 32: by idiffer (last edited Dec 27, 2017 10:17AM) (new)

idiffer | 34 comments Oh, sorry, I completely missed that.
So maharashi and the japanese light novels that are left are in limbo until proof, right?


message 33: by Ayshe (new)

Ayshe | 3032 comments Someone familiar with their publication details might also come across them. I think "Unknown" is better than date that is likely to be wrong.
