Peter (pete_c) | 388 comments The title is just about the only thing correct for this entry. (The data on Amazon does not match the copy I have on hand.) Amazon has a copy of the 1st edition at http://www.amazon.com/Chief-Tallon-R-John-Ball/dp/0396083072/ref=sr_1_1_title_0_main?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1319935864&sr=1-1 with the following data:
Hardcover: 196 pages
Publisher: Dodd Mead; First Edition edition (June 1984)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0396083072
ISBN-13: 978-0396083078
GR copy of 1st edition Chief Tallon and the S.O.R. by John Dudley Ball Chief Tallon and the S.O.R., which uses the cover that matches mine. In fact, the only real difference from this edition to mine is the publisher: mine is Dodd, Mead & Company.

Could someone please try to sort this out?

Sandra | 22748 comments I've tracked down and combined a lot of John Dudley Ball's works.

The Daniel Cohen book has re-used the ISBN and that's OK. Just needs the librarian note to be done.

However, I've got to go out so if anyone else wants to finish this, go for it.

Peter (pete_c) | 388 comments Yes, but the Daniel Cohen work also has its own ISBN. That's part of what makes it confusing.

Also the Daniel Cohen work with that ISBN has a different title.
