I am not sure we have any control over that, but still, perhaps we could point it to our Archive overlords...

I recently finished a Turgenev's book, in Russian. It had 25 sections. The Archive page for it: https://archive.org/details/dvoryanskoegnezdo_1906_librivox for some reason has 31 sections, and the added 6 (9th, 13th, 15th, 25th, 28th, and 30th) each has a match among the rest; in other words, they are duplicates. However, their titles are not duplicated. For instance the section listed as 9 is a copy of what is known as 10.

The download options only list 25 files, which is good.

Can we do anything about it?

That is a quirk of the Internet Archive processing that happens sometimes. It only effects the display at the top of the Archive page.

The Librivox catalog page, audio downloads and .zip files will not have any doubled files.

I will remove the duplicates in the display.
