Bryan--The Bee’s Knees (theindefatigablebertmcguinn) | 402 comments I own a copy of The Collected Stories of Jean Stafford that was not part of the Goodreads database, and so I added it this afternoon, but I left off one number on the ISBN.

Here is the page:

The listed ISBN is 0374051540
The correct ISBN is 03740515409

Thank you

Sandra | 26075 comments The shorter isbn is 10 digits. Whilst the first one is wrong, making it eleven is also wrong.

Can't find anything even close to those you've listed.

Closest is 0374529930, which is already in the database.

Bryan--The Bee’s Knees (theindefatigablebertmcguinn) | 402 comments Hm...You're right--I thought I counted them.

I'm not sure what the ISBN is supposed to be for this then--the copyright page doesn't list it, but I thought it was listed on the back matter of the book.

I looked on and to see if any similar copies were listed but I still don't see an ISBN for this.

I added it because it's a softcover version, which wasn't listed. I guess it would be better to remove what I listed as an ISBN.

Thanks for looking into this

Bryan--The Bee’s Knees (theindefatigablebertmcguinn) | 402 comments That's it.

I had taken a picture of the back of the book, so everyone could see what I was talking about:

I should have figured the 0 in the middle was the problem--but I've not seen that before. I've seen them leave 0's out at the beginning of an ISBN, but not insert extras in the middle.

Thanks for your research and time

and the correct ISBN: 0374515409
