Page counting

Hi all,
Regarding a publication's page count for mention on an online store, should one count just the pages with music on them, or all pages including for example a blank final verso page (owing to multiples of 4 pages in booklet production)? Also, when counting the front matter pages (expressed in small roman numerals), does one count the copyright page and any blank pages, such as title page verso etc.

Cheerio, hope you are all well,

If you're selling a printed copy, then I would expect to have the total 'extent' of all the pages, including prelims and blanks.

If you are numbering the prelims with a separate scheme, then yes, count every page -- though it's not usual to have numbers on titles and blanks, which might mean that the first visible number would be "iii".
