Anne Zandt (poisonpainter) | 114 comments Hi,

can someone please take a look at this German book?

The copy I own as published by Blanvalet, as is the copy shown, when you follow the Amazon link from the ISBN https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/3442...

Yet neither of the existing editions is by this publisher.
https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...

Should a new edition be added for this?

Neither of the others have a cover and both of them have a review as description instead of a blurb - I can give you the one from my copy if you need.

Please let me know how to proceed with this.

Thanks in advance

Anne

Arenda | 19989 comments Cover added to both editions, from Amazon DE: https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...

Also corrected the publisher on the paperback to Blanvalet. According to Worldcat, Goldmann is listed as the publisher and Blanvalet as the series. Series is probably intended as imprint here, and Blanvalet is prominent on the cover.

If you please can provide the description from your copy, we can add it to replace the current review.

Anne Zandt (poisonpainter) | 114 comments Thank you!

The description according to my copy:
Man kennt »Frankenstein«, eine der schaurigsten Figuren der Weltliteratur, meist besser als den Namen seiner Schöpferin. Doch Mary Shelley war eine der faszinierendsten Frauen des 19. Jahrhunderts und gilt bis heute - nicht nur in der Frauenbewegung - als Kultfigur.

There are also reviews added on the backside, not sure if you want to include them. They read as follows:

»Wie spannend Karin Priester mit sanftem Sarkasmus und scharfem Verstand die tapfere, kluge Mary aus dem Vergessenen Bewußtsein der modernen emanzipierten Gesellschaft heraufholt, das gibt Grund zur Begeisterung: Welch eine tolle Biografie!«
Welt am Sonntag

»Karin Priester schreibt verboten gut - klug, akzentuiert und fesselnd!«
Süddeutsche Zeitung

»Karin Priester porträtiert Mary Shelley mit bewundernswerter Könnerschaft. Man kann von einer Lebensbeschreibung kaum mehr erwarten, als daß man ihre Helden lieben lernt.«
Abendzeitung

Arenda | 19989 comments Added the description to replace the review that was on the book page.

Reviews and praise are not allowed in the description field, so they should not be included.

Anne Zandt (poisonpainter) | 114 comments Could anyone please add the page count to the paperback edition?

Didn't find it on Amazon or WordCat, but the last number in my copy is 341 without appendix and 352 with.
