Enrico | 32 comments Hello,

the page of the book "Tales of terror and mystery" (ISBN 9781847493842 - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...) has several issues:
- the book is presented as belonging to a Sherlock Holmes series, but it is actually a collection of stories that have nothing to do with Sherlock Holmes (see also the very description on your page of the book)
- the book is reported as first published in 1965, whereas it was first published in 1922; at least, it says so in the book itself and in the description of it on your page of the book
- My copy, from Alma Classics, 2014, has 248 pages
- there is a separate batch of manifestations of the same work (https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...) that are listed as a different book, in this case reported as first published in 1908 for some reason; the list of tales (on your page for the book) clearly confirms it's the same book

Thanks and best wishes,
Enrico

Abcdarian | 23463 comments I separated a couple of the problem editions (The Complete Sherlock Holmes and Tales of Terror and Mystery together), but can't separate the first one listed. It will need a higher up; I'll post elsewhere.
