Yelena (mursya) | 20 comments Yet another Isbn 9785917590 is taken by an existing book with the title "Генералы" whereas it should belong to https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

That looks like a truncated ISBN-13. If you know the full ISBN someone can add it to the correct record.

Scott | 21333 comments I added the ISBN to the book in your first post. It was not in use already.

Yelena (mursya) | 20 comments Yet another Isbn 9785917595 is taken by an existing book with the title "Девочка перед дверью" whereas it should belong to https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

If it starts with 978, it must be 13 digits long, not 10.

Scott | 21333 comments I added your ISBN from msg. 7 to the one you said it belongs to, but the next one does appear to be already taken.

Correct ISBN for https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4... is ISBN: 978-5-91759-584-9

And for the book https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... is is ISBN: 978-5-91759-371-5 and not 9785917595 (check here https://www.labirint.ru/books/499202/)
