C-Cose Daley | 128 comments Greetings,

I recently edited the listed introduction for edition matching ISBN 13 : 9780451463210. I've since noticed that the page count differs dramatically from the copy that I have.

My question is whether the initial entry is for the "mass market" edition rather than the trade-paperback one matching that ISBN. If so, should I make a new entry for the trade-paperback--thereby respecting this as a mislabeled mass-market entry. Or, should I change the page count to reflect the correct number?

How many pages does your copy have?


C-Cose Daley | 128 comments The entry I'm concerned about is on the following page:

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/84...

It matches the ISBN 13--although the ISBN 10 is different--and lists 448 pgs. My copy has the 424 that you've referenced.

Hence my confusion as to whether this entry is for the trade paperback or a mass market edition that I don't have.

What ISBN 10 does it have?
The ISBN converter for Library of Congress says that the ISBN 10 and 13 for that edition match.


C-Cose Daley | 128 comments I agree ... but the entry has "0451463218" listed as the ISBN 10.

Can you see my confusion over this entry and whether I should start a completely new one based on the information that I have in my edition?

What other ISBN 10 are you seeing? 0451463218 is the correct ISBN 10 for that edition.

The ISBNs are the same as your book and world cat matches your page number for that ISBN. The page number came from an import, not another user.

I say change the page number to match your edition.


C-Cose Daley | 128 comments Thanks Amanda :)

It never hurts to ask especially when I'm new to GR and haven't had librarian duties in some years. You should have seen me as a student librarian back in the 80's .... contravening the Dewey Decimal system was likely to earn someone a glare from me ... lol :)
