The Works of George MacDonald just downloaded today but to me it looks like there could be an edition problem with a number of the volumes. Are they not all supposed to be Logos edition and not ebooks?

And a couple of them have n.d. for a publishing date. I don't think it would have been hard for them to find the original publishing dates for these:

David Elginbrod (1863)

The Princess and the Goblin (1872)

I agree that does seem to be strange but perhaps they just included what was showing in the original editions.

Perhaps... I looked at the dates of some and they are of whatever edition Logos had to hand and not the original publishing date.

I also just noticed that Adela Cathcart vol 1 is dated 2019 but the book itself gives the original publishing date as 1864. I also notice that this book is an ebook (e.g. no page numbers) whereas vols 2 & 3 which are also noted as ebooks do have page numbers.

It's too bad that this collection doesn't include Diary of an Old Soul. I'd like to see that in Logos format. It's a book of poetry arranged as a daily devotional. Wonderful, prayerful poems.

These are not included in The Poetical Works of George MacDonald, Vols. I & II which is part of the collection.

I agree. Perhaps someday.

Apologies. We accidentally marked some of these as eBooks. It's been fixed now.

Both these relate to the source material. In some cases our source material had no publication dates, hence n.d. The no page numbers is also related to the source material.

Still have two refusing to become Logos Edition. Deposited in hidden resources - restarted, unhid - restarted. Remain eBook Edition.

Same here. Probably because those are the only two in this collection that are not by George MacDonald, so they probably missed them in going for the fix (they probably filtered on author:"George MacDonald').

You are correct. They've been changed. 

I apologize for the hassle.

You're right. I took the opportunity to rectify that omission - see https://community.logos.com/forums/t/188940.aspx
