Ayshe | 3055 comments I changed this one's https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...
author from 'Unknown Author 861' to 'Gérard Moss', combined with the two other editions, and deleted them (as they didn't seem to have differing details).
Now when I go to Combine editions, the book doesn't appear.

I suspect it might get deleted as that happened with another book I combined.

Can somebody advise if I am doing something wrong?

There is only one edition, probably because you deleted the other two. One was a hardback so was a different edition to the paperback you are linking to and therefore should not have been deleted.

I moved Gérard Moss to the primary author position (as per cover) but I only see one edition so there is nothing to combine.

Edit: The hardback was here

the other one, here

Ayshe | 3055 comments Sorry about the wrong deletion :(
I wasn't seeing even that one edition on the Combine Editions page, so I changed the order of the authors to see if it will make a difference (it didn't).

The other book I mentioned actually wasn't deleted(just found it looking at my edits), but I still can't combine it, can that be done, too please:
