Nanaa (xxmzsmilesxx) | 1167 comments What do I do when the names of publisher conflict?
For example for this book the publisher for this book is, MacMillan Publishing Company

This is similar to Amazon,

However, WorldCat states that the publisher is Thorndike Press

What should I do in this case?

Abcdarian | 19392 comments Amazon also says "Thorndike Press Large Print Americana Series". Google search indicates the two companies are related. If that helps. :-)

Nanaa (xxmzsmilesxx) | 1167 comments Ohh, so since those two companies are related I should just leave it as it is?

Abcdarian | 19392 comments Probably? I am no expert though.
