Moloch | 2826 comments Another librarian pointed out to me that there are some problems with the editions of "Little Women" and asked me to report it in the Librarians group. It seems that editions containing 23 chapters (i.e. part 1) were erroneously combined together with editions containing 47 chapters (i.e. part 1 and 2 together).

The note on the combine page of the author explains it better
https://www.goodreads.com/book/combin...

For example this (default edition) https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... should not be together with https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

Unfortunately I am not familiar with the work, so I'm just reporting the problem, but I am not able to help.

Thanks to whoever will work on this.

Arenda | 20234 comments Since you posted this request, there have (not unexpected) already been several changes, including removing book 1, part 1 (= the 23-chapters Little Women) from the series page.

I was the one who has written the original Librarian Note about Little Women, but someone has added to that, so it's now credited to someone else.

The editions you linked are now listed as different editions, one as #1, the other as #1, part 1.
I've added #1, part 1 editions back to the series page, and corrected #1.5 back to #1, part 2.

I think there are now no full editions combined with the 23-chapter editions.

I spent a lot of time on this author back in 2017, leaving lots of Librarian Notes. It's an impossible task to keep it sorted. There are always people who don't read Librarian Notes and think they know what they are doing.
