Emy (emypt) | 5038 comments Your edition is here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8...

Investigating the truncation aspect.

Worldcat says that this ISBN has 451 pages. Can you tell us what is after page 323 on your edition?

The 1995 Bantam edition (9780593038895) has 348 pages, however: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

Both 1995 editions are first editions for their publisher, but barring any further information I find in the next few minutes, I'm confident that the truncated edition is the same as the ISBN you list.

Emy (emypt) | 5038 comments Just so you're aware - I will be separating those two editions from the main group for that title. They will remain separated until the merge of the truncated edition is complete.

Donna (donnawannaread) | 20 comments Page 323 is the last page, other side is blank. After that is the thicker end page and that is all. No text of any kind after 323.

Emy (emypt) | 5038 comments What does it say on the title page? Delacorte was the original US publisher, and Bantam the original UK publisher.

Emy (emypt) | 5038 comments Recombine is now complete. Your shelving should now have moved to the edition linked in the second comment.

There are a number of Worldcat entries for the 1995 Delacorte editions. The one in Summerset Co. Public Library has the same pagination as you. I have no idea what's going on with that HUGE difference, but I'm guessing someone somewhere has accidentally merged some records in Worldcat... Altering your edition to 323 now.
