Monica P | 24 comments I didn't know there was a manual for adding, etc., so I clicked add an edition and only updated required fields and fields that were different from the earlier edition. Since the isbn was the same, I didn't add it, thinking it would overlay and all would be well. Instead, I was met with an additional record, which makes me so sad! The two records are here: https://www.goodreads.com/search?utf8...

Banjomike | 5530 comments It looks like it should be an edition in its own right so you probably did it OK. The combine feature is currently "temporarily disabled while we conduct some maintenance" so there is no rush.

EDIT: I've added a cover. Are you saying that all four editions have the same ISBN?

Monica P | 24 comments The 4th edition I have in hand has the same isbn as the existing record for the 2nd edition. I cannot vouch for other editions, but I assume so.

Fair enough. They cannot be combined until the maintenance run is over.
