Algernon Blackwood, The Extra Day

T992813 --NEED US 1st, US 2nd ; all three HDL

Contents list, page ix, shows 11 sections (ten numbered) within the 124-page Chapter XVII "A Day Has Come".

The US edition lists all chapters compactly on one page without any detail.

Text of UK and US eds. is not identical, page-by-page, but all 20 chapters begin on identical page numbers.

Neither the UK nor the US text is consistently ahead. At the end of 124-page Chapter XVII (p329) the US ed. is 18 lines, almost two paragraphs ahead. At p356/57 one word ahead, no diff at 357/58.
Perhaps no more than use of em-dash (spaced in the US ed.) and implementation of right justification

HathiTrust Digital Library provides full view of a stated [September 1915 reprint (see)]. That is probably the 2nd printing, and probably sometimes called the Second Edition. Early December advertisements by the publisher state "Fifth Edition Now Ready".

Title record

review-ish below
The "research magnificent" of the title appears to be protagonist Benham's lifelong search for wisdom or study of how to be noble.
"the kingly life" in NY headlines, explained in -09-12 review
aristocratic somewhere
HathiTrust Digital Library (HDL) provides full views of the 1915-09-21 London (1st UK), 1915-09 New York (1st US, 2nd printing), and 1922 edition/printings --and no others. See those three publication records.
At least one WorldCat library record reports London, 1915, v+460 pages. Probably that is spurious. HathiTrust copies of stated 1915 editions show that the novel ends on pages 460 and 406 in the US and UK editions respectively (with the identical Contents list numbered "v" and un-numbered). Back page promotions differ.

announced for -09-14 [22] [23]
received LCJ -09-13
NYT review -09-12 pBR321 [24]

from lead paragraph "The Research Magnificent, which will be published this week, is, as usual, a book of revolt, but it seems to indicate that Mr. Wells is drifiting away from Socialism. At any rate its ideal of a world rescued and ruled by the few nobler spirits is far from socialistic. Or did the author mean, by the failure of Benham's life, to demonstrate that such a dream is hopeless in a muddled world? ..." ... The volume is less a novel than the biography of an idea embodied in a man. William Porphyry Benham sets out to live what he calls the noble or aristocratic life, and the book is made up even more largely of his abstract ideas than of what happened to him because of his beautiful obsession. The whole is presented in the shape of a biography of Benham prepared by friends from a vast accumulation of notes left at his death." NYT headlines -08-29 and -09-15 call it "the kingly life"; -0912 prose notes "a self-sacrificing kingship of spirit applied to the social betterment of the whole world".

Help:How to verify data

References space

  • Reference:Verification Sources --table
    • "Secondary Verification" sources other than BleilerSupernatural and BleilerEarlyYears; those two not listed
    • every row linked to our Wiki page for the source

I don't know the two sources BleilerSupernatural and BleilerEarlyYears. Alone among the "Secondary Verifications" that we list in publication records, these two are not covered at Reference:Verification Sources. Are they organized by work rather than publication, an omitted for that reason? (We say that BleilerEarlyYears covers science-fiction stories and don't mention publications.) If so, we should note that at the head or foot of the table. Otherwise we should expand the table.

  • "Secondary Verifications" --list in publication records display
    • Contento1 and Locus1 linked to the external websites (maybe by oversight); every other row linked to our wikipage
    • OCLC/Worldcat --maybe shdbe listed first or last as different in kind

Two entries in our publication record list of "Secondary Verifications", Contento1 and Locus1 are there linked to the external websites rather than to our wikipages. I suggest that we link the wikipages Reference:Contento1 and Reference:Locus1 (which contain the relevant external links, as do our Clute/Nicholls and Clute/Grant wikipages). And that we provide some information about Locus1 eventually.

I revised the page to note that we know the online ed as "SFE3". Does secondary verification against Clute/Nicholls continue to specify the 2nd edition, or cover SFE3 also?

    • why second printing 1386 rather than 1370 pages --perhaps this print edition matches the 1995 CD-ROM, which includes addenda by John Clute?

"Twenty-five years ago, when Walker U.K. opened a U.S. branch, rather than continue to sell rights to U.S. publishers, it was forced to take a different name on this side of the pond. The name “Walker” was already in use, and Candlewick Press was born. ... In fall 2018, Candlewick will introduce its inaugural Walker Books U.S. list. " (our 25th year, upcoming Walker's 40th) -- "it will be a place for more commercial titles than Candlewick typically publishes" -- "The Walker Books U.S. list will include both U.K. and U.S.-originated titles, which will be available in the U.S. and Canada." -- "Candlewick plans to add three positions, primarily in New York, to help develop and launch the new list. All sales and marketing, as well as production and business function, will be supplied by the current Somerville, Mass.-based Candlewick team."

    re: My talk page re Jody Lynn Nye 1987 and 1989 Xanth titles (not publications).

    Why did you approve either of my title updates for the 1987 and 1989 Jody Lynn Nye contributions to the Xanth series? Are you asking that I undo the functioning link to lccn, delete the number as well,
    My prefatory phrase "Per Library of Congress catalog record of first edition LCCN 00-521241," (in the 1987 instance) is crafted so that the entire bullet list entry (here, a sentence unpunctuated by a closing dot) pertains to the title. It's regarding the Title, the work, not the Publication, that I referred to the Library of Congress catalog record for the first edition. My phrasing leaves it to more and less savvy users of the database to draw their own conclusions about a particular matter such as whether LC subject headings are likely to be valid for other editions or publications of the title.

    Do you mean that the active link is inappropriate but the dead text as quoted immediately above would be ok? Or the LCCN (that's the "number" 00521241 and/or 00-521241) is inappropriate?

    Per Library of Congress catalog record of first edition LCCN 00-521241

    Help:Screen:EditPub#Content Information

    When you are viewing or editing an ISFDB publication record, the data in the upper part of the page is from the publication record and the data in the lower (Contents) section is composed of ISFDB title records. The Contents section is in turn divided into three parts.

    actually the "Content" section of the editor has four sections, the first for Cover Art; both the Cover (linked illustrator name) and the Title Reference fields in the top half of the publication listing are edited in the lower "Content" half of the editor

    if i would inform users that the original fully illustrated title page is reproduced as one interior plate (or recto side of one plate?) INTERIORART appears in

    if i would synopsize a title from a copy of one edition/printing in which it appears, should i go ahead and ignore the list of editors who have PV? what if i would add a bibliog Note to the Title record? [example is original one-page introduction to the Wizard of Oz by the writer T1349863

    first British edition 19

    LCCN omits the subtitle for the British edition, as do 4 WorldCat records that are represented by "1930" and "Heinemann" in Formats and Editions (index); 1 more gives a shorter subtitle. SFE gives the subtitle as do 14 of 18 WorldCat records by the same criterion.

    Note: The subtitle is given by 1 of 2 WorldCat records explicitly cited.
