Amazon deals in staggering volume, and sometimes mistakes seem to happen. Once I got one CD after thinking I had ordered another -- no great problem, it's a wonderful CD and I was delighted to pass it along to a friend; but have feared to try a second order for the other CD. Again, Amazon seems to have included two editions of Richardson's SIR CHARLES GRANDISON in the same ad: the Oxford pb is complete and unabridged, but the hardcover listed in its ad is, by the account of one disgruntled reviewer, merely a slim extract of this great novel. Something similar seems to have happened here. Alerted by one purchaser's report of having received an outdated earlier translation, I checked and ordered from a different Amazon ad: one that showed Joscelyn Godwin's name as translator on the cover. And to my relief, received the desired edition.
