Octavia Cade | 177 comments Hi Goodreads,

is it possible to change the cover of a book, please? It's been given the cover of a different book by mistake.

The book is "On Liberty" by John Stuart Mill.

I own the edition in question - it's sitting in front of me as I type - and while all details including ISBN are the same, the cover you've got up is for the Penguin edition of a collection of two different works by Mill - "On Liberty" and "The Subjection of Women".

This edition does not have "The Subjection of Women" in it. It would be 100+ pages longer if it did. The correct cover (with matching ISBNs) can be seen here:

Therefore I replaced original cover file with the same, better quality cover:

Between 2011 and 2016 the book was listed with the more recent cover for this ISBN, so I added alternate cover edition with this cover - from Amazon - here:
