It's a compilation of expressions, and following LC PPC PS 6.27.3, the proper structure is just as you indicate:

100 [AAP for creator], $e author. 
--no 240----
70012 $i contains (expression):$a [AAP]
70012 $i contains (expression):$a [AAP]. $l [language of translation]

When in doubt, remember the "El cartero" example from the PS (though it would be nice if they'd update that with relational terminology).

I hope that helps.

PCCLIST readers,


In hand is a book for which a bib record (coded 040e rda) has these MARC fields:


240  ǂk Selections

700 ǂt ǂk Selections.

700 ǂt ǂk Selections. ǂl English.


But now, with two 700 fields (one for the work, one for the expression), I wonder whether the 240 is necessary or required.  In AACR2 cataloging, it would have had ǂk Selections.


In case someone wants details, the record is OCLC 853452562.  Unless I hear to the contrary, I'll delete field 240. 


Sincerely - Ian P.S. the record isn't coded pcc (but looks like it woulda/coulda/shoulda been)
