Marcos Kopschitz | 120 comments I've found an ISBN wrongly assigned. I'm positive about the correction needed, but since it is an ISBN issue, I'd appreciate comments from fellow librarians or superlibrarians.

I created this book in GR: Nadar: o retratista de um século: Coleção Carlos Leal. It is a book I own.

However, I could not include the ISBN (10 or 13), because they're assigned to a totally different book. By mistake, in my view.

ISBN-13 is 9788526504271.

You can find this book, with the correct ISBN's, at these sources:


Amazon Brazil:

And WorldCat:

However, in Goodreads these ISBN's are assigned to "Naked as a Jaybird", I don't know why.

I think I should remove both ISBN's from the book they're assigned to and reassign them to the right book.

Any advice against that?

Matt Ely | 13 comments Looks like "Jaybird" has a new set of ISBN assigned to it, which matches WorldCat. Did you address the issue? Still no ISBN on "Nadar"

Let me know if I'm misreading something

Marcos Kopschitz | 120 comments Matt, I mistakenly set the first link to what seems to be another edition of "Jaybird". Now removed.

Second and remaining link was correct, showing a typical Brazilian ISBN assigned to a German / British book by "amazon_sable".
