Esther | 15 comments I've noticed that someone added the author and translator as one name "Hendrik Groen/Hester Velmans" instead of putting them in seperate fields:

This creates an entire new book...

I thought that this would be easy to solve, but there is another problem:
The three editions of the book in that record have no ISBN, but if you look at publisher and year it looks like they are already added in this record: (merging them is probably a bad idea)

Can one of you take care of it? Or tell me what I can do?

I've merged the incorrect author profile into the right one. All three editions are indeed duplicates. One has a cover, format and publisher listed matching with this edition:
I'm merging these three duplicates now into the valid edition.These three duplicates are now merged into the valid edition, and recombined with the other editions.

Esther | 15 comments Super! Thank you for your effort.
