Misfit | 102 comments I'm not smart enough of a librarian to solve this. The book has separate listing for Sir Arthur Q and D du M (who finished the book after his death). Can they be combined somehow?

Lisa Vegan (lisavegan) | 2408 comments Yes, I'm working on it. The trick is to make AQ the first author of each edition and D du M the second author on each.

Books can be combined only when their first authors are the same.

Lisa Vegan (lisavegan) | 2408 comments Okay, Advice please. D du M seems to be listed on the cover as sole author in some editions. I'm stopping work for the moment. Anybody feel free to finish up.

Generally, for most books I've seen the author finishing up has been listed second on the book cover. A la The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

Misfit | 102 comments My recollection from the notes when I read this last years is that "Q" began the book, passed away and Du Maurier completed it, so both authors are listed.

ETA to add from Wik:

Lisa Vegan (lisavegan) | 2408 comments Okay. I think I got them all. Hopefully, I didn't screw up things more, but at least they'll be easy to find. Q first author, DM second author for all editions.
