On Tue., Aug. 16, 2011 John Marr wrote (in part): AACR2 25.2B says in part "Relate editions not connected by uniform titles by giving the title of the earlier edition in a note in the entry for the later edition [etc.]." A single "edition" is defined in AARC2 in part as "copies ... issued by the same entity." Thus: issues by different publishers, especially under different titles, are considered to be different "editions", so 25.2B applies when 25.1A is not significant. However, AACR2 says at 25.3C1: If a work is published simultaneously in the same language under different titles, use the title of the edition published in the home country of the cataloguing agency. The example given is of a work published in the same year in both countries. In the present case, the publication of the British and American editions is separated by a year, but there is only one copyright date, the date of the British edition. The situation is complicated by the fact that LC and UKM chose to catalog the work somewhat differently. LC used the title as the main entry, UKM used author as main entry. Based on the 2011 edition (which I cataloged for one of our libraries; it may be a third edition or a reprint of the 2nd ed., it does not say; UKM and I used "[New ed.]"), I believe UKM's choice was the correct one -- the commentary is more important than the photographs. The question will become what title to use when linking editions. For editions published in this country, the title proper remains more or less the same (although, for the first edition, LC transcribed the title proper as Photojournalism, 1855 to the present). The Australians, of course, used the British title for the first edition. Users can, after all, have citations to either the British or the American title; it would be useful if they could know that it was the same work, at least for the first edition. Michael S.

AACR2 25.1A mentions the need to use uniform titles as partially dependent on "1) how well the work is known, 2) how many manefestations of the work are involved." Therein lies one distinction between Shakespeare and Golden.
