And that ISBN should really be 0380003058.

Matthew (mpounsett) | 8 comments That's not what's printed on the book. Would it have been common at that time to drop digits from the ISBN?

I don't see your suggested ISBN in the goodreads database either though.

Yes.

Yeah, someone will have to add a new edition. If another librarian doesn't get to them first, I'll add this one and your other request in a couple hours.

The last three digits of the ISBN you gave are the price (095 = 95 cents). I also have some additional info on ISBNs and vintage books that I wrote up awhile back if you are interested.
