In the process of cataloging a copy of the 2010 edition of the DK Eyewitness books title Baseball, written by James Buckley, Jr. (ISBN 9780756659349; 72 pages) I noticed the following note on the verso of the title page: "Some of the material in this book previously appeared in Eyewitness Baseball by James Kelley, published in 2000, 2005".  The name authority record for Buckley (n 2002038095) gives his date of birth as 25 Jan 1963, and the name authority record for that James Kelley (n 99274861) gives the same date of birth.  Since the record for Buckley says he has also published under the pseudonym K. C. Kelley (name authority record (n 2003096759), I contacted him to ask whether he (Buckley) is the author of the Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness books title Baseball, written by James Kelley (ISBN 9780789452412; 60 pages), which has the following on the verso of the title page: "Text copyright  2000 by James Buckley, Jr."  He confirmed that he is indeed the author of both, the earlier version having been published under a pseudonym, which he does not recall using for any other title.

Is this a matter of merely tying the existing records for Buckley and Kelley together with a 500, or should the information on the Kelley record be transferred to the Buckley record and then reported for deletion, since that name was only used for a single title, a later edition of which was published (under the same title) with the author's actual name?

Thank you.
