If you come across an incomplete book record, please do not add a new edition but ask here to have the existing record edited. That is much less work for librarians.

Since the old record has the ISBNs, that is the correct one. The edition you added needs to be deleted and the old one updated.

M. L. Gabriel (m-l-gabriel) | 6 comments Ugh okay, I've already been in apprehension of my wrongdoing when I learnt about this group and how the community deals with faulty/incomplete entries; unfortunateley that was after I created the duplicate.
Thank you for clarifying, responding so swiftly, and editing!
For the future, I now know how to handle situations like this one.
