Publish date (original) scrape

Closed

Hi,

I'm trying out the scraper as I need some data from specific books and I'm having trouble with getting publish date data on books. I'm not talking about the publish date of a given edition, but the original publish date. Example:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4671.The_Great_Gatsby

It says: "Published September 2004 by Scribner (first published April 10th, 1925)"

When I scrape the data from the book page, under publish date I get September 2004, but I also need this first published date, which is April 10th, 1925. How is it possible to collect this first published date for books also?

Thanks a lot,

Dimitrije

Hey Dimitrije,

I just want to let you know that I added a new property called "firstPublishedDate" and scraped the information of the attribute that you are requesting. You can use the latest version for the updates.
