Kevin Lambert (yuck) | 4 comments The page count for ISBN 9781905574001, The Imitation of Christ is 320.

Thank you.

Bea Worldcat states the page count should be 305. Added. What is on the 15 other pages?

Kevin Lambert (yuck) | 4 comments My copy has a preface, table of contents, etc.

How can a book have an odd page count? Shouldn't it at least be 306 if you're using world cat as the SOR?

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Kevin,
as per Goodreads policy: The number of pages in a book is meant to include all content except for advertisements and preview chapters for other books. Included end material may include acknowledgments, afterwords, appendices, bibliographies, glossaries, indexes, notes, and suggested discussion questions.

Introductory material paged using roman numerals is not included in the total page count.

We also would not count blank pages etc., so it is absolutely fine to have odd number of pages.

Could you therefore state what exactly is included on pages 306 -320?
