Suzanne | 10 comments Hi!

I was working on checking/editing my books and found that when I search for ISBN 9781853260568 I get a whole different version from Jane Austen's Persuasion than the one I own. Different cover and everything. My 9781853260568 is a Wordsworth Classic from 2000 (whereas the one on here is from NTC/Contemporary Publishing Company, 1998)

Also, when i search for ISBN 9780140431025 I get a whole different version of Jane Austen's Lady Susan, The Watsons and Sanditon. Also a different cover. My 9780140431025 is also a Penguin Classic, but from 2003, not 1975!

Weirdest one is my Dutch translation of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey. On my book it says ISBN 9077895647 (ISBN13: 9789077895641) but when I search here and on Google I get a non-Austen book from the same publisher. Looks like the publisher goofed?

What can I do to fix this? I can not enter my editions correctly as the ISBN has been taken, so I can only enter my editions without the ISBN? So I must leave out correct info on purpose?

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Suzanne, sometimes ISBNs get used for reprints; you might want to look through the existing editions for an alternate cover edition which matches your edition. If they aren't entered on GR yet, then an alternate cover edition is what you'll need to add, I'm afraid!
