Janta | 34 comments Back again with another page count correction. :)

City of Light, City of Poison: Murder, Magic, and the First Police Chief of Paris
ISBN: 978-0-393-23978-2

Goodreads currently has its page count at 336 pages; my copy has 310.

Thanks!

Z-squared | 8580 comments WorldCat also has 336; is there additional back or front matter that might be messing up the page counts?


Janta | 34 comments Yes, now that I look more closely, some of the pages at the front of the book are marked with Roman numerals, and they do go up to 26. So never mind, I guess it has 336 pages after all!

Thanks again,

--Janta

But we don't count roman numerated sections before the regularly numbered sections when determining page count. Set to 310.
