I have just in the past day had multiple books show up on my page. Can you please combine them with the originals?

Emily | 14420 comments #19 The one that is a dramatization should not be combined with the main work. There's a librarian note on the detail page of it as well.

The third one is the "wrong" Richard Adams. If you go to the combine page you will see a librarian note at the top right that says it is the 'default' Richard Adams. So I have changed the primary author in those 4 editions to the "two-space" profile (the "right" Richard Adams) where there are two spaces between the first and last names to differentiate from other authors of the same name. When these editions were imported, they are automatically imported to the default "one-space" profile and someone comes along and changes them when noticed.

I am now combining the main record for Watership Down with the ones on the third link you sent, since they now have the same primary author. Just review the "combining" parts of the Librarian Manual for more info.

Thanks for posting; it's a good example of this situation. :-)

#32-#36 done, but this is not the right thread for adding books to authors, you can post in the proper thread, or start a new thread, please. Thanks!

Tina | 1 comments Can you please combine

with
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

It is a translation and I accidentally added it as a new book instead of as different edition. Thanks!
