I have a question - the ad for the product said 7 volumes, I only got 6. I check and there is a Genesis volume 1 and 2, and I got just one Genesis resource. No problem, it probably contains both volumes. However, in the ad for the product it says Vol 1 is 447 pages, and volume 2 is 1,120 pages, or 1,567 pages total. My resource is 1,218 pages.  Is this a problem? There doesn't seem to be any indication of volume 1 and 2 in the resource.

Isaiah also seems to be short a number of pages from the ad.

Yes I got this today. Genesis volumes 1 and 2 have been combined into one volume, as has happened in print at least once. It has 1219 pages.

The page counts vary in different editions. The total page count in the above linked edition was only 738. I wouldn't worry about it. All the content appears to be there. I assume the ad for the product simply copied the page counts from the 1949-50 print edition of the book that came in two separate volumes. But don't expect it to add up to the sum of what we've got, since the pagination of this edition is inevitably different; it isn't just two volumes shoved together into one. The Baker print edition from 1968-1970 shown in snippet view on Google Books appears to have been a total of 1220 pages in two separate volumes, but I can't tell what the individual page count was because it lists both vol 1 and vol 2 as 1220 pages, which is pretty close to what we've got. But the edition we have is the 1949-50 edition:


I looked up those ISBNs on Amazon.com and found that Vol 1 (0-8010-0533-7) was actually 578 pages and Vol 2 (0-8010-5522-9) is listed as 1220 pages. Evidentally the pagination continues from 589 at the beginning of Vol 2 and the total is 1220. So the product description page is wrong for both volumes.

Good sleuthing, thanks Rosie?  Our resource seems to match what you say, according to the ad Vol II starts at Abraham and Sara at Gerar, which is chapter 20. That's page 579. And our complete resource is 1220 pages.
