lethe | 13729 comments Your Amazon link doesn't work, but searching the reseller's ASIN I found this: https://www.amazon.com/Melnikov-Imper...

We cannot add a book based on that information, because none of it seems correct.

If it is a Bulgarian edition, we need the title in Bulgarian. Moscow seems to be the place of publication (a Bulgarian book published in Russia?).

The ASIN is used by the reseller on Amazon but should not be added to a print book on Goodreads.

I don't know what format 84/108/32 means.

The description gives info on the seller, not on the book, except for this:
M 1989 Politizdat. 414 with. hardcover, enlarged format.

But what does it mean? Year of publication 1971, or 1989? Page count 414, or 526? Is Politizdat the publisher?

Is this the correct author: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... ?

Where? Please post a link, because it is not on D. Melnikov's page.

Arenda | 20157 comments I think this is the book: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

lethe | 13729 comments Thanks, Arenda.

I corrected the author names (both were added in one field).

Not sure if D. Melnikov is the same author. According to Worldcat there is at least one D. Melnikov who is a scientist (the IG Farben book is probably his). Judging from the title, the Lithuanian book could be by the same author as the Bulgarian one, but I can't find it in Worldcat.

lethe | 13729 comments Thanks. I think it is safest to keep him separate from D. Melnikov.
