Toviel (exagge) | 51 comments Heya!

The History of the Fall and Decline of the Roman Empire was originally published in six volumes. However, Penguin's 1996 version of Vol. I (link here) actually included Vol. I and Vol. II of the original work. It's currently combined with all the copies titled Vol. I.

I have no idea how many of the "Volume 1" titles combined together only include Vol. 1, thus why I'm not tackling the issue despite being a Librarian. At minimum, the Penguin edition needs to be separated from the other editions.

I added a librarian note to the 1996 book to help differentiate it from the other editions on the combine page. Feel free to remove the note if it's unnecessary.

Emily | 14468 comments I separated all of the other editions. It's good to leave the note. I did not go through the others either. Since the one mentioned is the default, that one was the most important so people don't add/review the wrong version.
