I don’t understand series authority records all that well. But if it’s easy for someone like me to draw the conclusion that only photo-offset prints by Da Capo Press belong to the series, I assume some other catalogers will, too. At least the other, original publishers should be added to the authority so it doesn’t mislead people.

 

I have evidence that the series was on a book before 1920 if someone needs that.

I don’t think those subfields imply that only photo-offset reprints belong to the series.  They just identify what was used as the basis for the series.

Oh, I just realized that 1982 publication was a reprint of something published under the older series in 1910. Would someone just revise that authority so it doesn’t imply that only photo-offset reprints by Da Capo Press belong to it?

Thanks, Ted

There is currently an authority for Modern methods of treatment, published by Da Capo Press in New York. The 670 gives the name of a work from 1982, and I think that’s the only work in OCLC that really belongs to that series. There seems to be another series by the same name that went from 1904 to 1920. It was published originally by Cassell and Company, London, and W.T. Keener & Co., Chicago. Paul B. Hoeber, William Wood & Co., and Funk & Wagnalls also appear to have published some of the titles. But Cassell and Company published until the end in 1920.

 

I think the chance that it’s the same series as the Da Capo series is close to zero, though I guess it’s possible. Since I am not trained to create series authority records, I can’t create a new one. On bib #21798798, I created an uncontrolled 830 with qualifier (London, England). I don’t know if that’s the right way to do it.

 

I hope someone can help with this.

Thanks,
