Sandra | 23790 comments 1. Cover from WorldCat, details from WorldCat & Amazon
2. Cover from Amazon
3. Cover from Amazon, details from Amazon
4. Cover from Amazon
5. Cover from your pic, details from WorldCat
6. Edition info on Amazon wrong, but cover is correct according to Abebooks, used Abebooks as it is a better cover
7. Cover from Amazon

Google isn't an acceptable source for covers so we can't use it. We much prefer using Amazon or associated companies or WorldCat as we need to verify we are using the correct edition.

Thanks for the links it was much appreciated.

Nicolas Chinardet (zefrog) | 181 comments Thank you for doing this and apologies for using Google (the guidelines only mentioned booksellers, which I don't think Google is. Won't do it again though).

With regards to No 4 https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... you've added the cover for this edition https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... (Gazebo books) rather than the cover for the iUniverse edition. Since Google seems to be the only source for an image of this cover, here is a link to a personal pic of it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0sqfqx82m0l...

And a link to a better (personal) pic of this one too: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

I hope this is helpful.

Many thanks

Sandra | 23790 comments Ok Amazon had the wrong cover but WorldCat had the right one.

And also replaced the cover for the better quality one.

I've also added the link for acceptable cover sources for your info.

Actually, they are a bookseller.
