I would like to add my book to your db but I notice that someone has used an ISBN number that they have assigned to their 20th edition when in fact the ISBN is (or is also) assigned to the 18th edition. I would like to upload for 18th edition and will do so without entering ISBN no. But will some librarian 'God' figure this out for me? I have ISBN 0485550016 - 18th edition.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Actually, that's probably the ISBN for the 18th edition; the description which says 20th edition is the default description for the whole book. I'll edit it so that it's no longer edition-specific!

I've already created a new book that does not include the edition... thank you. I wanted to be sure this edition stood alone. I have also uploaded the photo for this book.

Do you have a publisher and a publication date for this edition? Page count, binding, and a better description would also be great. :)

message 5: by [deleted user] (new) I'll put up a better description later. Thanks again.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Thanks! I merged that in with the existing edition and did some clean-up on the other editions.

This edition did not win any award (that was the 20th edition). Other than that, looks good! Thanks.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Awards are per-book, not per-edition, so it'll show up on all of the editions.
