Melanie (mvalente89) | 1757 comments Edition #2- You put the printing info as the ISBN, but per your scan of the copyright page, the ISBN is 0140326359 as seen as on this record below. I have added your cover and info (plus a page count from Worldcat)

Volkun (wolfcreed) | 223 comments Oh god I'm sorry, I forgot to scroll down!

Thanks :)

Melanie (mvalente89) | 1757 comments Edition #1- I'm thinking this record here (which matches your ISBN) should be updated.

Per Worldcat, this edition was published in 1998 (matching your info) with the same cover.

Also, I believe the publisher of Lothian Books (which matches Worldcat) is the correct one. Walter McVitty Books published between 1985 and 1997 when it was sold to the Thomas Lothian Publishing Company (show at the top of your copyright page) and this came out in 1998, so it would be under Lothian Books.

However, I'm going to leave this one to another librarian to decide.

Volkun (wolfcreed) | 223 comments Wow, that's confusing. I hope its not hard to solve!

lethe | 13562 comments Re edition #1:

The top of the colophon shows the legal name of the publisher, Lothian Books. It also says that it was originally published by Walter McVitty Books in 1985. So Lothian Books is the correct publisher for this edition.

Have also updated the pub date to 1998. When editions have the same cover and ISBN, we keep/update to the earliest pub date.
