John When I posted the quote, I began with the author name, Eugène Sue. The book I wanted was Atar-Gull, Un Corsaire, Le Parisien en Mer, Voyages et Aventures sur Mer de Narcisse Gelin. romans maritimes. Unfortunately, there are many variations of the title, but none that matched completely. So I chose the closest one, which turned out to be a graphic novel adaptation (which I only discovered after the quote was posted).

The quote to be deleted is at https://www.goodreads.com/work/quotes....

I don't know if you can add it to the correct book but, if you can, it belongs at https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... .

My apologies for the mistake. Thank you so much! :)

Arenda | 20008 comments There's no need to delete a quote when all that is needed is to correct the book.

About the book: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...
Is it a collection of four books?, or is Un Corsaire, Le Parisien en Mer, Voyages et Aventures sur Mer de Narcisse Gelin like a subtitle.
Currently it is combined with https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8..., which is the edition that shows in the list of books on the quote page.
ETA: I've added this edition to the book now.

John Wow, you were much faster than I expected! :D

Thank you so much for fixing this. I appreciate your time and hard work. Cheers!

EDIT: It's a sort-of collection. There are short novellas included with the longer work (Atar-Gull) but they all apparently share specific details. I'm not finished reading yet, so I'm not sure how interconnected they are.

Based on that information, I've separated Atar-Gull / Un Corsaire / Le Parisien en Mer / Voyages et Aventures sur Mer de Narcisse Gelin. romans maritimes. from Atar-Gull.

John Thanks, Arenda. The one I'm reading has 243 pages to the other edition's 216, so that makes sense. I'm sorry I couldn't be more concrete about what each edition contains, but I think we've got it correct. Cheers!
