On the community pricing offer, The History of the Franks, there appears to be a Slavic cross.

Is this intentional or a mistake?

[I don't know but] there is an interesting note on this

This edition of History of the Franks provides translated selections from the original text. The omitted chapters are included in a summarized form.

With no hint as to how much is a "translated selection" and how much is a "omitted chapter"!  Translator: Ernest Brehaut

I found this elsewhere:

"Brehaut gives a complete list of books and chapters, but only translated a selection of the chapters. Here each book is preceded by a list of all the chapters. I have made clear which chapters are available here by highlighting those that are translated. Short notes from the foot of each page have been inserted italicized into the body of the text."

And that version looked like only half the chapters were included.  [only quickly scanned the first book of ten and saw that only about half were highlighted [included] ]

It's a mistake, I've asked our design team to correct as soon as they get a chance.

That cover makes more sense!

It's not a Slavic cross, but an Orthodox Christian cross (not used just by Slavs)

Maybe it is fitting after all, since Gregory of Tours dates to a time when the Western and Eastern Churches were united.
