The earlier heading looks like an umbrella series that subsumes the later, more detailed title.  But is it proper to completely overhaul an existing record like this?  The item cited in the earlier record's first 670 includes the numbering in the 642 according to LC's bib record (<http://lccn.loc.gov/23009336>; see also <http://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015036751553;view=1up;seq=6>).  The item in the second 670 points to a different numbering: Teil I, Abteilung VIII (<http://lccn.loc.gov/12008401>; see also <http://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015029580175;view=1up;seq=5>).
