Annika | 568 comments I'm going through The Melody Lingers On by Marry Higgins Clark and am looking at the LP edition. There are two versions listed, one missing ISBN (1 shelving). It does have a page number, one I can't verify on worldcat (395 p).

According to the same, there've been only one LP edition printed.

The second LP edition added has a publish date that I cannot verify and it doesn't match the one listed on amazon.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... (392 pages, and missing ISBN)

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... (has ISBN, but a publish date that don't match amazon)

http://www.amazon.com/Melody-Lingers-... (amazon)

I would like to merge the two together, but how much am I "allowed" to change? What is the procedure for this?

Always consider the source. One is user added, and the other from Ingram. Ingram is a fairly good source, and while books in hand do trump many other things, it doesn't really seem that very incomplete edition was necessarily added from a book in hand. And the person who added it is the only one who shelved that edition.

A merge would be fine.
