Eileen | 385 comments François Fénelon was in Goodreads under several different names, so I merged several author profiles. Now the books need to be combined. Thank you!

lethe | 13759 comments Editions showing his full(er) name on the cover should have that name added as secondary author.

Example: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6...

There are many variants of his full name as well: https://www.goodreads.com/author/simi...

I'd suggest picking the most complete one that appears on a cover and add that to other editions with a fuller name so we can keep the variant names to a minimum.

Arenda | 20953 comments Merged all (found even more than the link on #2, not surprised if there are still more) the (often misspelled) versions of the full name into François de Salignac de la Mothe-Fénelon. Found another variant François de Pons de Salignac de La Mothe Fénelon.
Added François Fénelon as primary author to all editions on those two profiles.
Did a lot of combining on the François Fénelon profile.
