trishtrash | 2 comments Hi, new GRibrarian here.

I have a number of folio society books to add to my library - I can scan the covers, but without ISBN #s (folio don't use them) it's almost impossible to say whether multiple issue books (such as The Hobbit) are already in they system, and 'folio society' in the search parameters isn't working.

Any advice? Am I missing something simple?

Thanks in advance!
Trish

AFAIK, it is not possible to use the search feature to find publishers. The only thing I can think of suggesting is using the "editions of" pages -- those show publisher. If you sort by date published, it should be possible to find (or conclusively not find) your edition.

Nice work-around, thank you very much! The last thing I wanted to do was add to the confusion with some of these titles.
