Katie (BooksRUs) (katiesbooksrus) | 125 comments Hi! I have some books on my shelf that don't have the original publishing date on them, so they don't come up with the right dates on my shelves. According to a previous message, someone told me before "There are two publication dates available for the bookshelf: date pub - original publication date and date pub (ed.) - publication date for of the shelved edition. All these were missing the original publication dates, so it was empty on your shelf." I was wondering if someone could update the list I have here:

1. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...
2. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...
3. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
4. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...
5. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

6. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...
7. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...
8. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...



ALSO: why is 8 in a different language and 4's title wrong?

Emily | 14420 comments Is the original date the same as the other date in all of these cases? Next time just provide the original dates for each one, or indicate that they are the same. Thanks.

That said, I don't know what the original date for Arabian Nights should be, but the main record says 1315 so I changed it to that.

for 8. someone accidentally changed the default description, so I am changing it back.
For 4., someone appears to actively be sorting out the records for Arabian Nights. The dashes were probably to help sort the records to know which ones are to be combined with which editions. They will revert the changes when the sorting out is complete.
