Page history last edited by Jennifer Nelson 13 years ago

General statement. Use this area only to record explicit statements of edition or version appearing in an item...Use of this area will be very limited." Most version information will be recorded in the notes. (Take language from AMREMM/APPM)

 

2. Edition Area
Contents:
2A. Preliminary rule
2B. Edition statement
2C. Statements of responsibility relating to the edition
2D. Statement relating to a named revision of an edition
2E. Statements of responsibility relating to a named revision of an edition
2A. Preliminary rule
2A1. Prescribed punctuation
For instructions on the use of spaces before and after prescribed punctuation, see 0E.
Precede the edition area by a period-space-dash-space.
Precede a statement relating to a named revision of an edition by a comma.
Precede the first statement of responsibility following an edition statement by a diagonal slash.
Precede each subsequent statement of responsibility by a semicolon.
For the use of the equals sign to precede parallel statements, see the appropriate rules following.
2A2. Sources of information
The prescribed sources of information for the edition area are the title page, other preliminaries, colophon, (see introductory section IX.2), in that order of preference. If an edition statement or any part of the edition area is transcribed from elsewhere than the title page, indicate its source in a note.
The third edition corrected, and considerably enlarged
Note: Edition statement from half-title
Book Club edition
Note: Edition statement from dust jacket
2A3. Form and order of information
Transcribe edition information in the form and order in which it is presented in the source, unless instructed otherwise by specific rules (see 0G).
2B. Edition statement
2B1. General rule
Transcribe a statement relating to an edition or issue of a publication as it appears, according to the general rules 0B-0G. Include any explanatory words or phrases appearing with the edition statement.
2B2. Words considered part of the edition statement
2B2.1. Edition statements normally include either the word “edition” (or its equivalent in other languages), or a related term such as “revision” or “issue.”
The second edition
Cinquiesme édition, reueuë, corrigée, & augmentée
Nunc primum in lucem aedita
Editio secunda auctior et correctior
2B2.2. Treat a phrase such as “newly printed” as an edition statement unless it is part of a statement being transcribed in the publication, distribution, etc., area. In case of doubt, treat such a statement as an edition statement.
Newly imprinted and very necessary vnto all youthe
(Comment: But transcribe a statement such as “Philadelphia printed, London reprinted” in the publication, distribution, etc., area rather than the edition area)
2B3. Words such as “impression” or “printing”
2B3.1. Use judgment in transcribing statements containing words such as “impression” or “printing.” In books from the hand-press era, such statements usually signal a new edition or issue. In these cases, the statement may properly be considered an edition statement.
The second impression
A new printing
2B3.2. In books from the machine-press era, statements containing words such as “impression” or “printing” are more likely to indicate that the publication is simply a new impression of the same edition. Omit statements of impression such as these from the transcription without using the mark of omission. Local notes may be made about the statements, if considered important.
Optional local note: Library's copy has "ninth printing" on t.p. verso
 
Alternative rule: If a decision has been made to create a separate bibliographic description for an individual impression, state, binding variant, or copy within a single edition or issue (see introductory section X.1.4 and Appendix E), transcribe statements containing words such as “impression” or “printing” in the edition area. Indicate the source of the statement, if other than the title page, in a note.
Ninth printing
Note: The words "ninth printing" taken from t.p. verso
 
2B4. Edition statements with special characters or a numeric emphasis
2B4.1. If an edition statement consists entirely or chiefly of characters that are neither numeric nor alphabetic, transcribe the characters as they appear if the necessary typographical facilities are available. For characters that cannot be reproduced, substitute the names or descriptions of the characters in square brackets.
&&& edition
alpha chi edition
2B4.2. If an edition statement consists of one or more letters or numbers without accompanying words, or only words that convey numbers, supply an appropriate word or abbreviation in square brackets. If no appropriate word or abbreviation can be determined, or in cases of doubt, simply transcribe the statement as found.
3e [éd.]
Second [ed.]
If such a statement signals a substantially unchanged impression of an edition, omit it from the transcription without using the mark of omission. Local notes may be made about such statements, if considered important.
Optional local note: Library's copy: "Fifth ten thousand"
Optional local note: Library's copy: Number "2" on t.p. indicates 2nd printing
Optional local note: Library's copy: "51st-100th"--T.p. verso
Optional local note: Library's copy: "163-173 Tausend"
Optional local note: Library's copy: Number line on t.p. verso indicates 3rd printing: "8 7 6 5 4 3 88 89 90 91 92"
Optional local note: Library's copy: Publisher's code "B-O" on t.p. verso indicates printed Feb. 1914; see Boutell, H.S. First editions (4th ed., rev. and enl.)
 
Alternative rule: If a decision has been made to create a separate bibliographic description for an individual impression, state, binding variant, or copy within a single edition or issue (see introductory section X.1.4 and Appendix E), transcribe statements such as the following in the edition area, even if they represent a substantially unchanged impression of that edition: a statement consisting entirely or chiefly of characters that are neither numeric nor alphabetic; a statement consisting of one or more letters or numbers without accompanying words; or a statement consisting only of words that convey numbers. Supply appropriate words or abbreviations in square brackets, as needed. Indicate the source of the statement, if other than the title page, in a note.
51st-100th
Note: The words "51st-100th" taken from t.p. verso
If identification of the substantially unchanged impression is based on a publisher's code or number line or on information found in a reference source, supply an appropriate statement in square brackets, as needed. Indicate the basis for the statement in a note.
Note: Number line on t.p. verso indicates 3rd printing: "8 7 6 5 4 3 88 89 90 91 92"
 
2B5. No edition statement
2B5.1. If the publication does not contain an edition statement, but is known to contain significant changes from other editions, or an edition statement for it is provided by a reference source, do not supply an edition statement based on this information. Give the information in a note.
Note: "Sixth ed."--Tchemerzine, v. 6, p. 117-131
2B5.2. If the publication contains only a statement that refers to another edition (e.g., as part of a preface to an earlier edition or a summary of the work’s publication history), do not transcribe the information as an edition statement and do not supply an edition statement based on the information. Notes may be made on such statements, if considered important.
Optional note: "Preface to the first edition": p. 5-7
(Comment: The publication is not the first edition)
2B6. Edition statements that are grammatically inseparable parts of other areas
If an edition statement is a grammatically inseparable part of another area according to one or more of the conditions enumerated in 1B1.1, and has been transcribed as such, do not repeat it as an edition statement.
Old New York, or, Reminiscences of the past sixty years : being an enlarged and revised edition of the anniversary discourse delivered before the New York Historical Society ...
Chirurgia / nunc iterum non mediocri studio atque diligentia a pluribus mendis purgata
2B7. Transposition of edition statements
Transpose grammatically separable edition statements into the edition area from other parts of the title page. Provide details of the transposition in a note.
2B8. Edition statements with grammatically inseparable information
If information pertaining to other elements of the description (e.g., an original title or other information concerning the original work) is grammatically inseparable from the edition statement according to one or more of the conditions enumerated in 1B1.1, transcribe it as part of the edition statement. If illustration statements or statements such as “in two volumes” appear with an edition statement, transcribe them as they appear (see also 1D3).
2B9. Edition statements in more than one language or script
2B9.1. If the publication bears edition statements in more than one language or script, transcribe the statement that is in the language or script of the title proper. If this criterion does not apply, transcribe the statement that appears first in the source. Transcribe the remaining statement(s), together with any associated statements of responsibility, as parallel edition statements. Precede each parallel statement by an equals sign. Make a note to indicate the original position on the source of any transposed statements.
2B9.2. Optionally, if it is considered that the parallel statements are too numerous to list exhaustively, and that some may be omitted without significant loss of identification, omit parallel statements after the first using the mark of omission. Transcribe the omitted statement(s) in a note, if considered important.
2B10. Two or more works on the title page with at least one edition statement
2B11. Edition statements on multipart monographs
2B11.1. If cataloging a multipart monograph, and the edition statement varies or does not appear on all of the volumes, ascertain whether the set was issued as such. If the publication was issued as such, base the transcription on the first volume and make a note to indicate variation in, or absence of, the edition statements in the subsequent volumes. In case of doubt, assume the set was not issued as such.
2B11.2. If the multipart monograph is known or assumed to be a made-up set (assembled from different editions by an owner) and reliable descriptions of the editions are available, make separate descriptions for each edition. In each description, make a local note indicating that the set is imperfect and identifying which volumes are wanting.
2B11.3. If the multipart monograph is known or assumed to be a made-up set and reliable descriptions of the editions are not available, base the description on the copy in hand. Make a note to indicate that the description is based on a made-up set.
2C. Statements of responsibility relating to the edition
2C1. General rule
2C1.1. Transcribe a statement of responsibility relating to one or more editions, but not to all editions, of a given work following the edition statement if there is one. Such statements may include the reviser or illustrator of a new edition, or a corporate body responsible for a new edition. Follow the instructions in 1E for the transcription and punctuation of such statements of responsibility.
2C1.2. Do not, however, apply this provision to such statements that do not name or otherwise identify a person or corporate body.
2C1.3. In determining the extent of the edition statement and the beginning of the statement of responsibility relating to the edition, it may be necessary to take into account the layout, punctuation, and typography of the title page as well as the sense of the text. Such words as “Revised and enlarged,” when appearing with the name of a person or body, might be transcribed either as part of the edition statement or as part of the statement of responsibility relating to the edition, depending on their presentation on the title page.
2C2. Transposition of statements of responsibility not relating to the edition
2C3. Phrases about notes, appendixes, etc.
2C3.1. If there are phrases about notes, appendixes, and such supplementary matter and they apply to the edition in hand but not necessarily to all editions of the work, transcribe them as statements of responsibility relating to the edition only in the case when the phrase names or otherwise identifies a person or corporate body and appears in the same source as the edition statement.
2C3.2. If the phrase does not name a person or corporate body, transcribe it as part of the edition statement proper or as part of the first statement of responsibility relating to the edition, as appropriate. Do not introduce the semicolon (as in 1E14.2) to separate such phrases from preceding statements of responsibility.
2C3.3. If such phrases have been transposed from a position preceding the edition statement, provide details of the transposition in a note.
2C4. Statements of responsibility relating to the edition in more than one language or script
2C4.1. If the publication has parallel edition statements (see 2B9) but a statement of responsibility relating to the edition in only one language or script, transcribe the statement of responsibility after all the edition statements.
2C4.2. If the publication has parallel edition statements (see 2B9) and statements of responsibility relating to the edition in more than one language or script, transcribe each statement of responsibility after the edition statement to which it relates.
2C4.3. Make a note to indicate the original position on the source of any transposed statements of responsibility.
2D. Statement relating to a named revision of an edition
2D1. If the publication is a named revision of an edition, transcribe the statement relating to that revision as instructed in 2B.
2D2. Do not transcribe a statement relating to a reissue of an edition if it represents a substantially unchanged impression of that edition. Omit the impression statement without using the mark of omission. Local notes may be made about such statements, if considered important.
2E. Statements of responsibility relating to a named revision of an edition
2E1. Transcribe a statement of responsibility relating to a named revision of an edition following the statement relating to the revision.
2E2.** Transcribe such statements of responsibility according to the applicable provisions of 2C.
If the title page bears the titles of two or more individual works contained in the publication, and one or more of these works has an edition statement associated with it, transcribe each edition statement in the title and statement of responsibility area along with the title to which it pertains.
