Additional comments: 

*quantities of titles, writers, pages, genres, sections, sets, collections, media etc. can be changed from us without prior notice;

the wording 'title' means 'Bibliographic record', meaning one title contains the content from at least one ‘physical’ printed volume. However, one 'title' could contain contents from more two or moore ‘physical’ printed books and/or printed periodicals, depending on the original work(s).
