Not sure whether this is the right place to ask - if it is not it would be great if you could point me in the right direction.

Is there any way to scrape the "first published" date from goodreads?
E.g. "Swords and Deviltry" https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...s_and_Deviltry
The book was published in 2006 however the first time it was published was 1970 (attached screenshot).

So far I have been unable to ever get calibre to store the 1970 date and I always get 2006

I have tried selecting and unselecting "Use published date of "first edition" (from worldcat.org)" - it makes no difference.

Thank you
