Demi Fang | 9 comments Hi! The description for this book reflects the version of the book that has combined the 2 original volumes. Please update book title to reflect this (remove "Pneumatic Structures" because that is the name of Vol. 1). (Book cover needs to be updated too, but I will create a new ticket in the relevant discussion topic.)

Here is a link to the Amazon page (which is already correct) which could be used as a reference for the title: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/026...

Thanks!

Albert | 2407 comments Title has been corrected. I noticed, however, several sources including Worldcat show the title as this:

Tensile structures : design, structure and calculation of buildings of cables, nets and membranes

Do you have a physical copy. Does the title page of the book match the front cover or does it reflect the title above?

Thanks Albert - this looks a bit complicated and I'm not familiar with the ISBN system for combined volumes.

The Goodreads entry we've been editing has an ISBN number (0262150131) that corresponds with a 1973 entry on WorldCat simply titled "Tensile Structures": https://www.worldcat.org/title/tensil...

The longer title is associated with this 1977 entry on WorldCat: https://www.worldcat.org/title/tensil...
In this entry, both the old ISBN and a new ISBN (0262650053); I believe this reflects that the volumes are combined into one...

I wonder if the solution would be to update the ISBN editions on our Goodreads entry and to update the title to the longer one.

I'll let you make the appropriate decision as a librarian. Thank you!
