Contents resolution: high, mid, and low resolution (re Catherine Crowe)

2019-11-20 draft toward User talk notice with Dirk J Broer in mind; unfinished and shared in no part

Catherine Crowe - Ghosts and Family Legends, Sarob Press 2005 at, where the 7th of 9 images shows the copyright page and Contents list

This edition contains the original Second Part followed by the original First Part, whose (sub)titles are the main headings in Contents. For the First Part: Round the Fire it does not list any of named stories that are told on the 8 "Evenings", merely "First Evening" to "Eighth Evening". Other editions list those stories in the Contents, and they are sometimes catalogued as contents --for instance, by a previous editor of our 1st ed. publication record P444461 (whose contents I exported to our Gutenberg ebook record a few hours ago, with sequence adjustment in the queue as I depart).

Our later publication records do not list either the "Evenings" or the named stories told on those evenings (where today I added notes explaining that the edition is complete, but our Contents list is not). Some library records also pass over "Round the Fire".

One motivation to list stories as Contents must be that they are sometimes reprinted out of their "Evening" context. But there are latterday publications as an "Evening" too. Relying on our publication records and naught else, anthologies contain the "Seventh Evening" under that name and also as an excerpt from Round the Fire, the ISFDB "novella" that constitutes the entire First Part. And anthologies contain one story told on the Seventh Evening, "The Benighted Traveller", both under that name and as an excerpt from Round the Fire (no report as an excerpt from Seventh Evening).

When such parts of books as "First Part: Round the Fire" and "Second Part: Legends of the Earthborn" be listed as works, when their components are listed as well?

cf. Tenniel illustrations of the Alice omnibus, as well as the two Alice novels.

el   Catherine Crowe 19899 

Crowe "The Garde Chasse"

Unlike "The Dutch Officer's Story", from the same 1859 book, "The Garde Chasse" [a] is not the title of its 1859 chapter (which it shares with other stories told on the "First Evening"; [b] is printed in the 1898 anthology without its portion of the 1859 frame narrative (one paragraph that spans original pages p32/33). Further, "The Garde Chasse" is not a heading within its chapter, nor is there any break in the text where its part of the chapter begins; it is a listing without page number in the Contents.

(All of the 1859 Contents listings without page numbers --nor headings where they begin in the text, a previous editor reports-- have been entered as ISFDB Contents, rather than the chapter titles "First Evening" and so on.)

The soul of the book is its well-bred, intellectual banter. The plot concerns a little girl in Greenwich Village who pawns her conscience."

LC 1906 McClure, Phillips
LC 1919 Doubleday, Page (LC catalogues as 1919) but the linked record at HathiTrust Digital Library catalogues a 1918 ed./printing, correctly; and another that HDL catalogues as 1919 actually states 1916.

Hi. You verified our record of this 1919 collection P579893.

  1. Did you determine that only two stories are spec-fic by reading the book? Or list only those SHORTFICTION already in the database? If the latter I suggest a note such as the one I added to a couple of records this week, "Fiction contents listed below (7 of 11 in the anthology) are those in the database as contents of other publications (September 2019)." If the former, a different note.
  2. Ess Ess Publishing Company was the founding publisher of The Smart Set literary magazine. For one point of entry in the database see publisher Ess Ess Publishing Co. The 1902 statement you report from the copyright page indicates that some contents in the collection were published in that magazine during 1902. The 1903/1905/1906 copyrights by Doubleday, Page report suggest appearance of other stories in Doubleday, Page magazines OR Doubleday, Page books during those years. HOWEVER, the entire collection was published by McClure, Phillips in 1906 OCLC 1399985, and Doubleday, Page acquired the book publishing operations of McClure in 1908. I don't know how to interpret the listings as in the Doubleday, Page name. (This meagre record of a Doubleday book as 1903 must be spurious, probably based on copyright statement, OCLC 500066730.) (S. S. McClure is no relation to "Ess Ess" and "The Smart Set" as far as I know.)
  3. From your cited WorldCat record OCLC 6568967 is "Doubleday, Page & Co., for Review of Reviews Co." a quotation from the title page? (For instance compare another t.p. image.) If so then yours is a Doubleday, Page publication and The Review of Reviews Co. or Review of Reviews belongs in a Note. "Doubleday, Page & Company / Review of Reviews Co." means Doubleday, Page as an imprint of Review of Reviews.

(end draft)

For this collection, dozens of WorldCat library records are listed in WorldCat: Formats and Editions as 1906 from several publishers (probably some of those record report spurious 1906 editions, but some give other publication dates).

Introduction, Famous Stories:

"The group of stories brought together in this volume differ from legends because they have, with one exception, no core of fact at the centre, from myths because they make no attempt to personify or explain the forces or processes of nature, from fairy stories because they do not often bring on to the stage actors of a different nature from ours. [...] The stories which make up this volume are closer [than Fairy Tales] to experience and come, for the most part, nearer to the every-day happenings of life."

Frontispiece differs from that of the 1907 Doubleday, Page ed. (viewed at Internet Archive). Title page, decorated: -- center, series vignette and name "The What-Every-Child-Should-Know-Library" -- bottom (quote 5 lines), Published by   DOUBLEDAY, DORAN & CO., INC., for   THE PARENTS' INSTITUTE, INC.   Publishers of "The Parents' Magazine"   9 East 40th Street, New York The magazine publisher name and address imply source publication date January 1936 to September 1939 --from matching data stated in the monthly magazine.

To fashion Rasselas titles with comma rather than colon may be an established tradition. "Rasselas, Prince of Abyssinia" by "Samuel Johnson, LL.D." is a variant NOVEL in the database, but we have that particular combination only by my specification of the title with a comma where the title page is unpunctuated (view as Gutenberg #652

    Vol. I of Nimmo's Popular Tales contains 10 stories. Meagre coverage in newspaper notices and advertisements, and in library records, shows that others of eventually 12 volumes contain multiple stories. British Library devotes one record (BL, below) to this publication of the Acton story alone, but notes "In : Nimmo (William P.) Nimmo's Popular Tales, etc. vol. 2. 1866, etc. 8º." (no page count for v2, nor pagespan for this work).
    According to the May 1866 promotion of the series, Vol. II would be published 1866-07-01 ("the First of each following Month"), a schedule followed rather closely in practice, even if the volumes were not dated. --1866/1867 newspaper coverage of the series in The Athenaeum, The Reader, and London Review (after May 1866, few brief listings).

    BL records show that the 12 volumes contain at least 7 stories by Frances Acton ("at least" because it appears that the 79 records, mainly of single stories, do not cover the 12 books completely)

    This Gutenberg Etext prepared by Donal O'Danachair <>

    Project Gutenberg Etexts are usually created from multiple editions, all of which are in the Public Domain in the United States, unless a copyright notice is included. Therefore, we usually do NOT keep any of these books in compliance with any particular paper edition.

    We are now trying to release all our books one month in advance of the official release dates, leaving time for better editing.

    Please note: neither this list nor its contents are final till midnight of the last day of the month of any such announcement. The official release date of all Project Gutenberg Etexts is at Midnight, Central Time, of the last day of the stated month.

    [...] Transcriber's Notes:

    [...] Preface: The preface is for a combined volume of poems by Chaucer and Edmund Spenser. The Spenser poems will shortly be available as a separate E-text.

    [...] Latin: Despite his declared aim of editing the tales "for popular perusal", Purves has left nearly all Latin quotations untranslated. I have translated them as well as I could — any errors are my fault, not his.

    "PREFACE The contents of this volume are republished in order to make the Edition a complete collection of Mrs. Ewing's works, rather than because of their intrinsic worth. The fact that she did not republish the papers during her life shows that she did not estimate them very highly herself; but as each one has a special interest connected with it, I feel I am not violating her wishes in bringing the collection before the public.
    "The Mystery of the Bloody Hand [perhaps 20% of the book] ... in which a glimpse of the supernatural is introduced amongst scenes of every-day life.
    "The Snarling Princess and The Little Parsnip Man are adaptations of two fairy tales which appeared in a German magazine; and as both the tales and their illustrations took Mrs. Ewing's fancy, she made a free rendering of them for Aunt Judy's Magazine.

    "The best and first of the classic cipher stories. Poe uses punctuation symbols as cipher letters in his message. The message is really a puzzle within a monoalphabetic substitution cipher as William Legrand solves the cipher message and unravels the resulting puzzle to find a pirate treasure. The highlight of the story is Poe's detailed description of how to cryptanalyze a monoalphabetic substitution cipher."

     w   J. Paul Suter 18044 --niVIAF [2]
    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle once wrote of a plot had never used successfully. It begins wtih a man and his wife departing for church. The husband returns to the house for his prayerbook and is never seen again.
    "I wrote a story using that plot", Suter said. "I called it 'The Dial of Ahaz' but the publisher changed it to 'The Impossible Crime'. It was included in a col­lection published under the title, of Creeps By Night.
    Irving Cobb and Stephen Vin­cent Benet had stories in that volume. It has had a good sale but not because of the Suter con­tribution."

    But we show the Suter story as "Beyond the Door".

    NYT touches on seven of them: the first three, Loyalty, Count Pizziccheria --those may be all of his five "contributions from the European scene" ("Once we had to listen to our friends tell of when they were in Paris. ... now our younger writers make copy of their trips abroad.")-- and The Head, and Fantasy in the First Person.

    It does not make clear that any of those is speculative fiction. (contrast the 1932 collection)

    WorldCat gives LCSH only "Fantasy fiction, English."

    Walpole "Mr. Hume wrote two ferocious novels, then for his third he produced in The Golden Dancer something gentle and kindly and extremely old-fashioned,in the manner of the early Wells of Love and Mr. Lewisham and The Wheels of Chance." --very long, both on Hume's writing and on the parting of ways in fiction today, and two worlds, but no attention at all to what we call genre

    NEED Title update and story title Notes
    review [309] M.L., The Christian Science Monitor 1932-05-07, p. 6 "Burnished Fantasia", covers all six stories briefly; --the poems less distinguished; among them, "The excursionsinto the legendary lands of Camelot and Cornwall vicinity seem less successful [than nature-studies], possibly because the author has nothin significant to add to what has been said about them before." ; to those who will not be offended by the light paganism of its ideology, it offers a deep, rare draught of beauty."
    review [310] The New York Times 1932-05-22 p. BR3 "In the Mood of the Ettrick Shepherd", names five stories
    • Myself and the Young Bowman (re-envisions Cupid) one light and delightfully written fairy tale
    • The Frogs and the Stork ("clever fable") a pleasant fable satirizing men's unrealized aspirations
    • Progress in Arcadia ("mythic legend") a moderately witty account of the sculptural contest established by Orestes in the Perfect City he had built in Arcadia--the prize going to him who could design the most beautiful carving representing Human Progress, the spirit of that city."
    • Forrester (eerie, in which "a dryad seeks a soul") "Forrester is a charming tale of a man who went into the country to plant trees, and thus won the love of a dryad."
    • The Tree of Knowledge ("parody of Adam and Eve")
    • 6. Grandmother Gift ("fairy tale") one light and delightfully written fairy tale

    Squire devotes 3/4 of two long columns to this work, "my New Year's Gift to any reader who relishes good prose or wit and is immune against shocks". Strong briefly gives the opposite opinion of the prose and concludes, His Monkey Wife must be set down regretfully as a good dish spoiled in the cooking." Straus overlooks flaws in the prose. "It is satire of an hilarious kind. ... Emily, you see, is no ordinary chimpazee. She cannot speak, but she studies hard (being in love with her master), and has the prettiest taste in clothes. And when Mr. Fatigay leaves Africa for England and (as he hopes) a bride in the person of the not very adorable Amy, Emily accompanies him, and soon shows the stuff she is made of." We "easily forgive Mr. Fatigay his final preference."

    Project Gutenberg Ebooks #3301 to #3304 contain the same four plays, with preliminary lists of Characters and Acts or Scenes that may be transcribed from the 1st ed. of this collection. That Ebook numbering does not match the sequence; the simple Ebook title screens and details of layout at the beginning of The Second-Story Man do not match the 1st ed. collection.

    Unknown whether such differences are consistent with use of this edition as a source text for the four Ebooks and compliance with Gutenberg standards.

    Narrow implies pb if not too tall. About 19cm implies tp or digest, depending on binding unlike or like a digest-formatted magazine. (But distinctive digest binding is not described in magazine Help, which suggests to me that a digest magazine is distinguished by its size --unless its paper quality is known to be "pulp", when pulp format is ?optional.)

    So-called "cloth" is presumed hardcover, although there are flexible cloth covers which are tp/pb/digest at ISFDB. Do we should we suppose that "limp cloth" or "flexible cloth" (or leather, etc) will be specified.

    CARTOONIST for the Gazette of the 3rd London General Hospital
    "Perhaps the most brilliant contributor to Vol.I of The Gazette was Pte. Stephen Baghot de la Bere, who at that time was a 3rd London orderly but afterwards transferred to the Artists Rifles and subsequently gained a commission. His pictorial satires on hospital life, in which the ward-orderly is always represented as a downtrodden slave and the Sister as a ferocious slave-driver, are alluded to by our art editor. But de la Bere's articles and imaginary interviews were hardly less sparkling."

It is a tale of adventure and romance; the action opens in Scotland and moves from there to the United States, thence to Scotland again, to India, back to Scotland, and finally to the United States, the last of the hero's adventures happening here in America. The novel is illustrated by Mr. William Hole, who was selected by the author to do the work. --"Ready at 11 O'clock. Scribner's Magazine. A Remarkable Number for November.", NY Times 1888-10-25 p5

    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 [588] [589]
    received LCJ -09-13
    NYT review -09-12 pBR321 [590]

    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".

    • 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?

    • 2017-08-10 "Candlewick to Publish Walker Books in U.S." PW --US rights acquired, "Walker Books" list forthcoming Autumn 2018

    "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."

    Non-Linking Templates

    separate table fashioned by Ahasuerus 2018-05-22 (in place of the two yellow-background rows drafted above)
    Template Functionality Example
    ISBN Displays the words "Additional ISBN" followed by a space and the specified parameter {{ISBN|978-0-9953378-2-4}} will display "Additional ISBN 978-0-9953378-2-4"

    Tr Displays the words "Translated by" followed by a space and the specified parameter {{Tr|Charles Baudelaire}} will display "Translated by Charles Baudelaire"

    Although the Translator template {Tr} does not generate a link, the Author linking template may be nested. {{Tr|{{A|Charles Baudelaire}}}} will display "Translated by Charles Baudelaire."

    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

    Mr. Parham subtitles

    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.

    no subtitle

    The first of two ISFDB-listed WorldCat records seems to be that from LC Catalogue, and does not give a subtitle
