vicki_girl | 2765 comments That one confused me for a few minutes...:S The first one you linked had been combined with the wrong book. I separated it and combined it back with the correct book.

I don't think combining is actually spelled out in the Librarian Manual. Here are the steps.

1. On the book page or author page, click "combine editions"; this will take you to the "combine" page.
2. Check the box next to each item that needs combining.
3. Click the "combine editions" button.

Here is a link to the Rules for Combining.

willaful It's in the librarian's manual. Look on the book page where it says "other editions" and there's a small "combine" button. That takes you to the combine page, where you check the boxes and hit the "combine" button. It will only work if both books have the same primary author.

On the the combine page, next to each edition there is a link that says "separate". For your example, I hit "separate" for the one that was wrong. (You may need to refresh the page after that to see the separated book.) Then I followed steps 1-3 from my earlier post. Hope that helps!
