Wickedpen | 48 comments Hello, it's been a while that I've been working on my shelves.
Is this article still relevant, or have things changed?

https://help.goodreads.com/s/article/...

I need to update a cover of a book I own, but can't seem to find the correct way to go about it now, and I did attempt to research it, but have limited time and would appreciate help.

Thank you all for your guidance!


message 2: by Scott (new)

Scott | 17250 comments That article is current, but only a librarian can create an alternate cover edition.


message 3: by Wickedpen (new)

Wickedpen | 48 comments Oh. Well, should I wait and then post a thread with all of the covers, or is it preferred that I make a separate thread for each book cover? Some are not available on Amazon, as well - but I'm able to take a pic.

Thank you for your help.


message 4: by Scott (new)

Scott | 17250 comments It's fine to use this thread.


message 5: by Wickedpen (new)

Wickedpen | 48 comments Wonderful! Thank you so much. I'll look to the guidelines and other posts to go about that.

The Book on Amazon:

Note: this lists ASIN. I physically matched my book to the one in the Goodreads link. I was looking at the cover as I chose it. I'm going to be getting rid of these books soon, so please don't wait to tell me I can't ever have the cover - when I had the book in my hands. Just let me know in time and I'll do anything to get rid of blank covers. :)

lethe | 13664 comments Please post to the full page, not just the image. Librarians need to check if the book details match.


message 10: by Wickedpen (new)

Wickedpen | 48 comments Certainly. I'll edit it the above posts tomorrow.

Thank you.

Hello! I am new to Good Reads. Can you tell me what is ACEs? is something missing on my part?

Duplicate request has been removed. To avoid confusion, please only post requests once. If a day or two have gone by with no reply, it's fine to bump your request up by responding to the same thread. Goodreads Librarians are volunteers, and some requests may take some time to get a reply.

It was a message to other librarians. ACE stands for Alternative Cover Edition (new editions need to be created for the new covers). I don't do those.

Hello! Do I have to personally tag/ping anyone (ACEs) about my request?

The ISBN does not match, but I am holding the book in my hands, and that is the cover for that ISBN on GoodReads.

Sandra | 23216 comments #20 Not sure what you're seeing but that is the isbn here on GR. Cover added from amazon.

#11 is pending from almost two weeks, please let me know who is the correct person to whom shall I approach.


message 26: by Wickedpen (new)

Wickedpen | 48 comments Just so I may learn:

This book:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

matches the isbn in the book in my hand, so does the cover - but the publisher is Rainbird Publishing on the details page, but the cover page as you move in 2 pages says: EP Dutton.

The Goodreads listing is Dutton. So, I just was wondering why this was, not so much "hey, it needs edited".

Thank you, in advance.

This Cover:
https://pics.cdn.librarything.com/pic...

Unfortunately, the book is old, so this is the only place I could locate the cover. I have this book, the LCCN is 73-185630, and the above is the cover - but I don't know how to check if the ISBN listed on the goodreads link is a match.

Let me know if you need me to take pictures of it for proof. Thank you!

Wickedpen | 48 comments This Book:

Has no information. I have it. Mine is this cover:
https://pictures.abebooks.com/BASKETC...

From:
https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/Book...

Everything matches (I can add that it is 25 pages), but I don't know if it should be added to the existing listing, or created as a new ed. Let me know. Thank you.

Wickedpen | 48 comments This Book:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

This Cover & Publishing page:
https://www.evernote.com/l/AEgGRZae1D...

I took those pictures. While the one listed on GR shares the ISBN - the cover and the publisher are totally different from the one listed. I didn't know whether to make a new edition, or ask for an edit... or what. I think the one listed is later and has the blue backing, opposed to my copy's grey.

Another call for the experts. :) Thank you. Let me know if you want any other info.

#11 done. There is no one person to approach, all librarians are volunteers. You just needed to bump your request.

Wickedpen | 48 comments This Book:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Again... problematical. I only have the LCCN: 50-12311,
the Cover:
https://pictures.abebooks.com/isbn/97...

Source:
https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/Book...

But... there seems to be some confusion if you go digging. McMillan put out a young reader's version that some are calling #1 of a series, but mine is Grosset & Dunlap, and from their Illustrated Junior Library series of which this is the only Kipling.

I can post pics of further info if needed. Just don't know where to start with this. Thank you!

P.S. - this is what comes of finally clearing out storage and unearthing all your childhood books... >.>


message 33: by Wickedpen (new)

Wickedpen | 48 comments This Book:

Is most likely the 1925 copy, and not 1930. Mine says copyright 1925, and it's signed to a relative and dated 1925.

Here is the cover of mine:

And preferably start a new thread instead of posting in someone else's (improves visibility).

Actually written by my harp teacher, Betsy Goodspeed. It is paperback, self-published by Instantpublisher.com. ISBN is correct.

The Cover:

So that will add to the listing! :)

The new covers show immediately, look at the all editions link as we combine all editions of the same work.

The member who posted that book has found a cover, which is different to the one you posted, Wickedpen. Please add your book details and I'll add it as another edition.

Sandra,

The person who posted this said in the info:
" The photo I am attaching is my book that is missing the cover."

That is correct, if you lift my cover, that is the pic currently attached. I do not believe that it needs a new edition, but let me know if you still feel so and I will comply.

Thank you.
