Walt Whitman and 19th-century women reformers / Sherry Ceniza. (OCLC #37155132)

Though the copy in hand has a new ISBN, it is really just a reprint of the original 1998 edition, with that same copyright date and no new content. The title page verso has some new metadata giving the 2013 date to the “paperback edition” and the “eBook edition”, but this is not enough to justify a new record, as 2013 is more of a manufacture date.

Though there wasn’t when we received the book, there is now an OCLC record for the paperback edition with a few holdings, but I am still using the more popular ©1998 record and have added the new ISBN locally. The two records may eventually get merged, and having the primary OCLC number locally avoids some discovery problems.
