This book, Wymondham: History of a Norfolk Market Town:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

has been mixed up onto the record of a GR author, John Wilson. Please could this book be separated off and a new author record created? Both John Wilsons are definitely separate people, one being a Canadian historical novelist, the other being a former Chairman of the Wymondham Heritage Society, sadly deceased.

Looking at the record for the book on the publisher's website:

http://www.wymondhamheritagemuseum.co...

I see that John Wilson should be credited as co-editor with Mary Garner. I can't find any record for her at all. Please could she be added?

Then (and finally) please could you add John Wilson's other book to his record? You can see this on the publishers website too. And here it is on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fier-Devised...

A Fier devised of the Divell: The Great Fire of Wymondham 1615
Published by Wymondham Heritage Society in 2013
44 pages
ISBN: 9781901553109

Thanks

Added new book here - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

For interested librarians, there are quite a few John Wilsons if anyone wants to disambiguate - https://www.goodreads.com/author/simi...

Lukerik | 98 comments Thanks Michael. Good luck to whoever does the John Wilsons. Library Thing lists 64 of them.
