    Default are these two exact same books?

    Psychological Types (0691018138), Carl Gustav Jung - Adlibris bokhandel
    Psychological Types (0415071771), Carl Gustav Jung - Adlibris bokhandel

    they are made different years(other 92 and other 76), different publisher, weight is different, other has 632 pages and other has 617 pages. i looked thru amazon and book from the second link had the covers of the first one there. It said that these are collections of and on amazon the second one is named Psychological Types (Collected Works of C.G. Jung Vol.6), but it has the covers of the first one..

    wtf is up with this?

    one is possibly a revised version?

    Most likely, either one is a second or later edition than the first, or they re-translated it if it's a translated copy. Books have been known to make minor changes in different editions or translation fixes.

    could be there is a foreword in the first one. Id think the first one is the one Id get since its part of the series of books by Jung.

    Page number is easily explained by font difference...a change in font type & size can greatly alter the page count. Weight of the book can be affected by the type of paper. Different publishers can account for these design differences, and a later printing can explain design changes from the same publisher. As for the same cover being attributed to different publishers, maybe one bought the rights to that cover design the other publisher had used (they possibly even bought the rights to that translation), or maybe that site has made a mistake & confused the covers.

    There are several translations out there of Psychological Types, and that will also account for difference in length, of course.

    I have the first one (based on the cover with the pink type) and I like it quite a bit compared to other English translations out there.
