Hi Erika:

You're correct about the 240 field, but you'll want to use a 546 note for information about the original edition, etc.

If you look at the field and description note for the 534 field, you'll see it doesn't match your example:

Descriptive data for an original item when the main portion of the bibliographic record describes a reproduction of that item and the data differ. Details relevant to the original are given in field 534.

The resource being cataloged may either be a reproduction (e.g., scanned image, or PDF), or an edition that is similar enough that it could serve as a surrogate for the original (e.g., HTML).
