I'm not sure you provided us with enough information. Are all of the authors named in the 4th edition new or are some of them a carryover from the 3rd edition? If all new, then I think for sure you have a new work. To link them I would use a sequential linking field with the relationship designator "supersedes", since this work supersedes the previous one. According to LC training materials, no 700 added entry would be made for the earlier work, although you could use the designator "Supersedes:" with a work access point in a 700 I suppose.

> We are cataloging one book: Of counsel (4th edition). On the title page, Jean L. Batman is listed as the first named author with bigger font than the other 2 authors, Harold G. Wren and Beverly J. Glascock. The previous 3 editions are under the title "The of counsel agreement" and the first named author is Harold G. Wren.
> In the preface to the fourth edition, the author Jean L. Batman said "Although I agree with the authors of previous editions that a well-drafted 'Of Counsel' agreement is indispensable for lawyer or law firms... only about half the 'Of Counsel' attorneys I interviewed for this fourth edition had written 'Of Counsel' agreements. For this reason, and because this book goes well beyond contract considerations, the title for this edition has been abbreviated to simply 'Of Counsel'."
