Ave Spahn | 3 comments Quick question for you all - is there an "official" way to handle reprints? The book has the same ISBN as the first edition but is a reprint and is quite clearly a different book. It has a different cover, different year of publication, different number of pages...

Do you just add the book as a separate book without an ISBN? If not, how do you reconcile the differing information, especially the pages?

Sandra | 23825 comments Yes, you add the book without the ISBN. It is called an Alternative Cover Edition. Add the edition using the link and you won't need to combine it.

So in the description you add "This is an ACE for ISBN ......" or something similiar.

If in doubt you can have a librarian add it for you.
