Tales of a Wayside Inn by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Trieste Publishing has a massive catalogue of classic book titles. Our aim is to provide readers with the highest quality reproductions of fiction and non-fiction literature that has stood the test of time. The many thousands of books in our collection have been sourced from libraries and private collections around the world.The titles that Trieste Publishing has chosen to be part of the collection have been scanned to simulate the original. Our readers see the books the same way that their first readers did decades or a hundred or more years ago. Books from that period are often spoiled by imperfections that did not exist in the original. Imperfections could be in the form of blurred text, photographs, or missing pages. It is highly unlikely that this would occur with one of our books. Our extensive quality control ensures that the readers of Trieste Publishing's books will be delighted with their purchase. Our staff has thoroughly reviewed every page of all the books in the collection, repairing, or if necessary, rejecting titles that are not of the highest quality. This process ensures that the reader of one of Trieste Publishing's titles receives a volume that faithfully reproduces the original, and to the maximum degree possible, gives them the experience of owning the original work.We pride ourselves on not only creating a pathway to an extensive reservoir of books of the finest quality, but also providing value to every one of our readers. Generally, Trieste books are purchased singly - on demand, however they may also be purchased in bulk. Readers interested in bulk purchases are invited to contact us directly to enquire about our tailored bulk rates.

I thought this was Longfellow's Tales of a Wayside Inn. It is--sort of. The original is composed of three parts where the inn's occupants provide their tales in each of the three parts. However, thus e-book only contains the first part. Perhaps the publishers got hold of a defective copy and did not know they only had a partial example. After all, in this part IS Paul Revere's Ride and The Children's Hour. But that is not all that Longfellow wrote in his career. One who LOOKS for information about the Tales or consults Bartlett's Quotations will find references to other portions of this work. At the least, the information page should make a point that this is NOT the complete work so the purchaser is aware they are buying only a portion of the work. (To make it all more of a comedy of errors, when I discovered the lack of content, I searched out a different e-book on B&N's site and bought it. The second version alsowas just the first part and the publisher was Barnes and Noble. Gad!)
