Nicolas Chinardet (zefrog) | 181 comments Hi,

I've just acquired a paperback copy of a book titled "Poems by C.P. Cavafy". The ISBN for it is 070111679x. If I search this number, I come across this entry, which doesn't seem to match my copy:

The copy I have is a reprint of a book first published in 1951 by Chatto and Windus. It has 199 pages and is in English. It's a translation by John Mavrogordato with an introduction by Rex Warner.

The cover looks like this: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.c...

Arenda | 19990 comments Added missing details, and cover from Amazon:

The original page count came from Amazon. Worldcat also has 199 pages for isbn 070111679X.

When asking for cover to be added, please link to the book page on Amazon, not just the cover, as we have to confirm it is the same edition,

ETA I am wondering if there are any English editions with Constantinos P. Cavafis on the cover. From the author bio I would think that the correct English name would be C.P. or Constantine P. Cavafy.

Thanks. Hadn't noticed the alternate spelling of the author.
