**Please read as there have been modifications**
This thread is for LT’ers or thingamabrarians, or members, or their designees, to post combining or separating problems with their books.
** If a book has been combined with a book that is extremely different from the original.
** If a book won’t combine with the other books just like it.
** There is a problem with the entry & it is just too overwhelming to deal with.
WHEN YOU POST:
Give us the TITLE & author, plus any other information you think we might need & please NUMBER them if you post more than one.
#1: The story of the life of you
#2: The story of the life of everyone else
** Please do not give us search pages or author pages.
Give us concrete & specific works to be combined, not groups of possibles, unless you have questions. Series pages can be helpful.
** You can ask us to look at a set of works to ask our opinions or ask if someone with a specific language or subject knowledge look at your request, but please be brief.
** Make your request easy for yourself & for the combiners who will help you.
Then you can just wait, “and someone will be with you shortly.”
Please, keep in mind this work is done by volunteers, not LT staff.
*** If you number multiple requests, it makes it easier if someone can only work on part of a request.
*** If you edit your post to add new items to be combined, please indicate that they are new by preceding with “ETA:” or “Edit:”.
*** Also, please indicate when a request has been "DONE".
Tim’s Guidelines for Proper Etiquette for contacting members about their book records:
“For this topic, I still feel strongly that I’d like to consider it bad form. Many others agree with me. But a few think I’m dictating and are angry about that. So, fine. Let’s just write some guidelines up. I propose that the guidelines be something along the lines of:
* Remember that LibraryThing is used for many different reasons. The way you use and enjoy the site is not necessarily the way others do.
* Be sensitive to how the member is using LibraryThing. Approach members who show no interest in the social side more cautiously.
* Try to provide helpful information and ask questions rather than dictating.
* If the user indicates displeasure at the request, let it drop.
* When in doubt, raise the issue in the Combiners! group before sending a message.”
Skittles’ note: I would like to add that we should ALWAYS use private comment when we absolutely must contact a LT’er, even when their response isn’t private.
Dr Mike’s (aka theapparatus) note:
If both works that need to be combine have more than 200 records, please post your request in this thread:
You need staff intervention to handle that request.
When this thread reaches approximately 200 posts, DO NOT POST HERE, but go to thread #45. This thread will be easier to handle if we keep it under 200 (faster loading). Please copy any notes or instructions to the new thread. Thank you.
Feel free to add comments &/or suggestions ... not just “challenges.”
** There is also a Combiner’s Group Information, FAQ & Discussion Thread #2 at: http://www.librarything.com/topic/57164 . That thread is for combining information, discussion in general, not for problems ... .
** The wiki page is here: http://www.librarything.com/wiki/index.php/Book_combining
Addendum by AnnieMod: We will help mo matter what, it just makes it faster if we have all the information as described above :)

De Achterhoek. Land van bossen en kastelen. Gids voor het toerisme in oostelijk Gelderland
Thanks in advance
Edited because of adding title
I think this one needs to be broken apart, but I can't be sure:
The spell book of Liz Taylor
According to Wikipedia, the book I have a bed made of pancakes is the original, and the other novel is an adaption.
I don't presently have access to the author's website to confirm the information listed on wikipedia. (Work has it blocked.)
Could someone else help me out here?
Here http://www.jaclynmoriarty.com/Books-Listen.html, it says that one is an adaptation of the other, but the author clearly considers it two different books. I'll separate them and add a disambiguation notice, pointing to this website.
Edited to add: I don't know with which of these books the CK belongs. I hope someone else can correct that. You can find the books at http://www.librarything.com/work/3066273 and http://www.librarything.com/work/12466943
http://www.librarything.com/work/152698 is book 3 of a trilogy; looking through the editions list shows that the German translation has at least 5 books, and that book 4 and 5 of that translation is buried in here. And surely if these have been miscombined, so has parts of the rest of the series.
>10, prosfilaes: Begun by addressing Book 2 of the trilogy, The Paladin of the Night, but I've got to stop for now. I separated and re-combined two German-language parts, Das Buch Quar. Die Rose des Propheten 02 and Die Rose des Propheten III. Das Buch der Unsterblichen. Unfortunately, I still don't yet know how these relate to Book 2 (or 3!) of the English-language trilogy. I'll check back as/when I can, and other Members' assistance will be appreciated in the meantime. Thank you.
Further to clarification of Book 2 (as noted above), Das Buch Quar is now identified as part "2a" of the trilogy, and Das Buch der Unsterblichen is part "2b." The Will of the Wanderer (English-language Book 1) appears to have a single German-language counterpart, namely Die Rose des Propheten I. Das Buch der Götter, so I'll leave it alone. As noted, The Prophet of Akhran (English-language Book 3) has Geman-language parts 4 and 5, which I'll separate and re-combine as parts "3a" and "3b." If anybody objects or disagrees, please fix it as necessary or appropriate. Thanks!
OOPS -- Also found part 6 in German! Making a logical leap, I've now re-assigned German parts 1 & 2 to Book 1; 3 & 4 to Book 2; and 5 & 6 to Book 3. When I can, I'll plan to PM Members having German-language copies, to see whether any can affirm, clarify, or refute my suppositions. (Film at 11:00 ... .)
I see a problem with this book that I don't know how to resolve. There is one copy:
Zen Poems (Everyman's Library Pocket Poets) / Harris, Peter (ISBN 1840723270)
Which I have separated out.
The problem is that the ISBN and the cover image indicate that it is:
Zen Poems / Bazzano, Manu (ISBN 1840723270)
Does it have the wrong ISBN and cover image or the wrong title and author?
is the Peter Harris "Zen Poems"
My guess is that it has the wrong ISBN (and cover image). Probably the owner imported Zen Poems from Amazon, then changed the author and expanded the title, but didn't care to correct the ISBN.
The only way to be sure is by asking the owner.
Hi, please combine
Could someone please clean up this author page?
There are several other authors named Comes or Comès so there needs to be separating and splitting done. My French isn't up to it.
I have tried to add - "Fann eg dei stigar" : vandringar i Aslaug Vaas diktning by Leif Mæhle to my library. It would not combine with the other books just like it. http://no.librarything.com/work/book/84813984 with the other 3 books http://no.librarything.com/work/2931344&titleauthorredo=2896582076
My book is still not included with the 3 other books > "Fann eg dei stigar" : vandringar i Aslaug Vaas diktning by Leif Mæhle http://no.librarything.com/work/book/84813984. Number of member of this book should be 4. I've tried to save the book several times, but it will not be included with the other 3 member of the books. It is not included in the author's list either. As you can see my name is not included here http://no.librarything.com/work/2931344&titleauthorredo=2896582076
> 29: Yes, I see that; but, when looking at your specific book ( http://no.librarything.com/work/2931344/summary/84813984 ), I see the same Work as the three other Members listed ( http://no.librarything.com/work/2931344 ) -- only with a cover image added. That suggests this isn't a combining problem, although I don't know how else to pinpoint or correct it.
Any thoughts or suggestions out there? Is this "merely" a caching issue (whatever that means), which should eventually resolve itself? Thanks to all for your help.
The link on KirstenLunds profile gives the work number 4260913, but this switches to the other when viewed, so they have been combined. If it were my book I would leave it overnight, and if it still were giving problems I would edit my title to make it easier to find in editions.
30, 31 >
When viewed IN KirstenLund's library the book URL show http://no.librarything.com/work/book/84813984 (no work id). Refreshing the page then brings up http://no.librarything.com/work/2931344/editions/84813984 (note "editions").
ETA: The 3 other members books, when viewed in their library, displays an URL in the common work/id/book/id format (i.e. http://no.librarything.com/work/2931344/book/20292054 in user brirei's library). URL does not change when these users book pages are refreshed.)
Don't know if this is of any help, I don't think I've seen anything like it before.
When I go to ( http://no.librarything.com/work/2931344 ) and try to add the book, It'll will come up bank in "add books" box
> 27-34: Bug report (of sorts) posted at http://www.librarything.com/topic/136051# . Let's continue our discussion there please, as appropriate. Thank you!
http://www.librarything.com/work/2931344/editions/84813984 - I don't even see the title in the editions list. So it looks like the book thinks it is combined but the work has no idea the book belongs to it...
> 37: Personally, I would propose that you keep it in your catalog at least for the time being, if only to see what comes of the bug report. Unless timspalding (or somebody else for LT) suggests / requests deleting and re-entering the record, it would likely help to have this example in addressing an underlying problem, if any. And, in any case, if the book is something you would include in your catalog, it makes no sense (to me) to remove it -- that's not what LT's about.
On the other hand, I would urge everyone to continue this discussion in the bug report thread ( http://www.librarything.com/topic/136051# ), and let this thread get back to combining / separating requests. Thank you!
I'm not sure we can do anything about it. But the situation is somewhat wierd.
I checked one book there with only 6 copies:
http://www.librarything.com/work/12122870 (Baseball in America) It has only one line in editions.
Baseball in America / Smith, Robert (ISBN 032111583X)
This ISBN belongs to another book (http://www.librarything.com/work/3340696, also in the list) but of the 6 members of the other work, 5 have it in their catalogues entered from LoC without an ISBN, and the 6th entered from Amazon.com with ISBN listed as 032111583X?, so why the state of editions?
Against the current http://www.librarything.com/work/9216446
Editions:Against the current / Wittke, Carl Frederick (1 copy separate)
Against the current: The life of Karl Heinzen (1809-80) / Wittke, Carl Frederick (ISBN 032111583X) (1 copy; 1.1.2 separate)
One catalogue shows ISBN 0670109444, the other 032111583X? But the first ISBN (valid for this work) does not show up when clicking on the WorldCat link, but only the bad one. The bad one is an Amazon.com entry.
I have fixed the problem. I found an other book by Leif Mæhle and changed the title to "Fann eg dei stigar" : vandringar i Aslaug Vaas diktning by Leif Mæhle and it was accepted. I found the other members and included them. The original book wouldn't be included no matter how hard I tried.
This needs to be combined:
Ceram has the same problem with another book by him--having his last name spelled as Cream insted of Ceram
I've manually entered these books:
Britannica Great Books: The Great Conversation
Britannica Great Books: Gilbert Galileo Harvey
The top book auto combined incorrectly
The bottom book should have (but didn't) combine
Thank you in advance
should works by this author be combined?
These are Jewish prayer books. I've combined the two Ashkenaz, but Ashkenaz and Serafad should not be combined, and of course the third one could belong to either.
I was trying to find books by Lucy Daniels (the author of Caleb, My Son, http://www.librarything.com/work/3766427), but when I click on her name, I end up on this page:
Obviously, there is an author combination problem, but I am not sure how to fix it.
Baglio's Wikipedia page says that Lucy Daniels is a pseudonym used for two series which Baglio created and which publishers hired writers to flesh out.
So, yeah. Lucy Daniels needs some seperation.
2wonderY: thanks for your help. Other than going to her biography page and pulling out her works, I don't know what else to do.
Looks like someone else is working on the issue already. I've got Dr. Daniel's homepage and her list of titles which I'll add if it's not done soon. I'll let the seperation fairy finish its work, as he/she seems well on the way.
Here's her website:
Yes, I pulled out those myself. But how do you get rid of Baglio's name? No offense intended to him. k4k
I'm a pretty good normal combiner/separator but this one has me stumped (and yep, I'm probably missing something obvious).
I was looking through my books and I own Heat Wave by Richard Castle, but, then on the Series page: http://www.librarything.com/series/Nikki+Heat there's also this Heat Wave --> http://www.librarything.com/work/10977037&titleauthorredo=1512189642 without an author.
I just wondered if there was a way to combine the two Heat Waves together even though one of them doesn't appear to have an author.
I think that if Lucy Daniels is not always Ben M. Baglio then the authors should be separated (http://www.librarything.com/author/bagliobenm/names) rather than dividing the Ben M. Baglio page.
You can now manually add or correct authors somewhere around the middle of the page in those cases.
> 54: Procedurally (mostly for those trying to follow how we do this), I presume you would:
(a) separate the Author name "Lucy Daniels" from "Ben M. Baglio,"
(b) divide the resulting Lucy Daniels works into appropriate, multiple divisions on their own Author page, and
(c) alias Baglio's Daniels pseudonym Works back into Baglio.
Are there other steps or techniques you would use?
I think that's basically correct. The following gave me pause in being more specific, "Lucy Daniels is a pseudonym used for two series which Baglio created and which publishers hired writers to flesh out." It sounds like Lucy Daniels isn't simply a pseudonym for Baglio but is a publisher created pseudonym for multiple authors. If that's so, I'm not sure how best to handle those books. So, for instance, the Carolyn Keene books have not been divided and aliased to their respective real author names. But I don't know if that's the right model for this case.
>57 Aside from the ghostwriting issue, IIRC (I researched this series for another website a while back) there's a UK/US difference, too: Ben Baglio is used for US editions and Lucy Daniels for UK editions of the same book. Apparently the UK publisher was afraid children wouldn't read the book if they were credited to a male author...
There's some more info here: http://janebadgerbooks.co.uk/misc2/daniels.html
The Decendants by Kaui Hart Hemmings
De afstammelingen - Kaui Hart Hemmings
> 48-52, 54, 56-58: Since this topic seems to be growing legs of its own, I propose a separate thread to discuss handling multi-author pseudonyms, publisher pseudonyms, and ghostwriters. Please join that conversation at http://www.librarything.com/topic/136226# .
can you please split these works?
I've done the separation, and am working on finding any combinations that now need doing.
This author http://www.librarything.com/author/tba is really a mess. What's more, I can't figure out what TBA is supposed to be. However maybe some of the books can be combined off of it.
There are four books found in a search for Temelji vjere. No ISBNs
Show the same cover,
http://www.librarything.com/work/10372966 has the blank cover.
> 67, 68 & 69: Done, either before I got there or now.
> 70: Not sure how to change or correct touchstones, except to force them when they don't work right. See http://www.librarything.com/topic/127136#3045924
70/71 Sometimes it also helps to change the title a bit. I played with that one last night, and if you leave off the sold part, 'others' will give you the right book.
> Thanks, MarthaJeanne. Actually, that is what I did when I realised the touchstone wasn't working, but I was hoping there was a way to fix it permanently.
Looks like I'll have to learn how to force touchstones; but that only solves it for my posts. Most of the time, unless I'm writing a review, I don't check my touchstones.
> 73: Apart from "natural selection" or forcing touchstones, cutting & pasting the Work's title or Author's name into the brackets seems to be my most effective means of getting suitable touchstones. Then again, I'm (a little?) OC about checking that the resulting link will take you where I want you to go ... . Any other thoughts and suggestions out there?
A question: I have this book, The Burned Tower (http://www.librarything.com/work/11982987) that has 2 authors:
Sergey Dyachenko and Marina Dyachenko. If I click on Sergey's name, it goes to his author page and the book is listed. However, no books are listed on Marina's page if you click on her name. Do you think this is correct?
ETA: I also just realized that this is a problem for Hotel Angeline (http://www.librarything.com/work/book/81307630) if you click on David Laskey's name.
77 You need to confirm the second author in 'other authors' on the main work page. This has to be done manually because of the garbage that often gets imported, and to set the some/all editions and main/secondary author.

can you please combine and separate these works as needed?
Combined the obvious stuff. Working on splitting the questionably-combined stuff, and putting the offshoots in the series.
I've split them and recombined the stuff I could, since I don't know the books. I've also created two sub-series to help make recombinations easier to find:
should be converted from Series to Publisher series.
Somebody is willing to help?
#91: Why should it be converted? They're anthologies of abridgments, and both the anthology and abridgment are unique to Reader Digest.
#93: I don't know; it's clear that "Great Expectations" includes DVDs, and who knows what else. I wouldn't feel terribly guilty about leaving works with no ISBN and no author out in the cold.
Same author, to combine:
But I don't think the middle name is usually shown on the books.
95> I've done the aliasing.
Edited to add. There doesn't seem to be any combining of works to be done.
> 93/94: I agree with prosfilaes, especially since the title "Great Expectations" was apparently also used by other authors than Dickens (see combine potential for that work).
I have a couple others that need separating
Two different car builder's dictionaries and volume 2 and 3 of aircraft colors
> 106: I'm not seeing anything wrong there. Maybe somebody else already fixed it, but please check.
Looks also to me as if it has been fixed.
It is hard to tell with those links. Current links are:
DO NOT COMBINE!
DO NOT COMBINE!
DO NOT COMBINE!
I have added Canonical titles to the The Car Builder's Dictionary to try and make the difference clearer.
>110: I don't think they should be combined, the GEM version is different from the 'normal'one. I will get the GEMs out of the other one.
95, Do you know who put (also Series Creator) on all those books?
>111 Thanks. I see you've done it.
One thing that confuses me though is that when I look at http://www.librarything.com/work/8944594, I don't see the "Your book information" section of the work page which should be there if you have the book in your collection. Yet, in the "Recently added by" line of the "Members" section, my ID (marq) is there.
> 113: Sounds like a caching issue - on the side of LT servers I mean. If it persists you might need to enter a bug report at:
I assume that the following authors can be combined
Please note that a) ends with the digit "8" . Is there anybody who can combine them? What was the problem? Regards and Thanks!
#118: They aren't combined. I'm not sure exactly what's going on, but they list the exact same book and the exact same user.
>119 It might be that a) is a phantom author url. I have seen such phantom author url before. (/author/foobar&20&norefer=2)
Please note that they have different CK (this is a reported but rejected bug):
CK for Paul ; Konikow…Janicki, Jerzy = a)
CK for Jerzy Paul ; K…kowsky Janicki = b)
prosfilaes If you have time please report this bug ahagin.
Note: the urls are from my FireFox bookmarks. They are "manipulated" as 30.000 bookmarks. Thanks in advance!
I just fixed the authors on the work instead. See http://www.librarything.com/work/9062733
Also, am I correct in thinking that http://www.librarything.com/work/10702743 is a different work? They have different page counts on worldcat and the latter doesn't list a second author. If they are different there should probably be a disambiguation notice.
This will need a little explanation. I just manually added to my library:
On Seeing the 100% Perfect Girl One Beautiful April Morning by Haruki Murakami
四月のある、晴れた朝に１００％の女の子に出会うことについて by Haruki Murakami
They are both the same illustrated comic chapbook version of the well-known short story except that one is in English, and the other in Japanese. They should be combined together.
The problem is that each of them auto-combined with different works. They should be separated out because these are 1 short story, not the whole short story collection, but the work pages are too complicated for me to easily find my copy to separate out. I don't want to make a mess.
If you need me to edit my entries at all to make it easier, please let me know. I'd appreciate assistance.
Can someone cleverer than me figure out how to handle this one, please?
This is two authors, John H. Lienhard IV and John H. Lienhard, V. (Links to pages about them will be found in the short biography sections of the CK on the split.) The book presently in the split for V (John H. Lienhard (2)) is a book they wrote jointly.
#123 done, but I would still edit the title(s) to include 'comic'. There is a German story bundle with the same title, and they might get confused.
1126> Looks lovely thank you. You seem to be getting me out of all my problems today.
Could someone take care of this: two publications from the same publisher, with apparently the same ISBN.
The isbn is 1888992360, in case that helps.
The works are
If You Really Loved Me and
Islam: A Catholic Perspective (this is the work I just added, but it's coming up under If You Really Loved Me)
Don't know if this helps...
http://www.librarything.com/work/33505/book/85722103 (brings up Islam A Catholic Perspective)
http://www.librarything.com/work/33505 (brings up If You Really Loved Me)
And they are by different publishers.
Separated them. Unfortunately there now seem to be some copies of "Islam : A Catholic Perspective" loose. Ack.
These should be combined:
This should be added:
Hi! VIAF search "Huber, Wolfgang" gives 49 results. The author division http://www.librarything.com/author/wolfgangdrhuber needs some cleaning.
Thanks for any help! Reinhardt

There is some cleanup required here. Thanks for any help!
Sorry, I believe you, but I can't see which books on the Rachel Epstein page belong to Rachel S Epstein - WorldCat is not being helpful here. If you know, please use split the author on "epsteinrachel" and then alias the appropriate section to "epsteinrachels".
> 145: With what?
Ah, hold on, 2011 occurred twice. Combined those.
If someone is in the mood for a long, complicated job
is overcombined. I separated out the Animal Farm / 1984 combined edition, and several Monarch notes, but there are still a lot of simplified versions in there.
please combine and separate as needed
#1 : Done.
#2 : I don't see any volume ones in there. Maybe somebody else fixed it. Otherwise please let us know.
To combine: By the shores of silver lake by Laura Ingalls Wilder http://www.librarything.com/work/12443/book/32691667

I frelled up, and combined 2 authors who are actually different. Now I can't find a way to fix it, and I'm getting lost in the groups
http://www.librarything.nl/work/12622100/workdetails/86103137 is by author (first,last)
van de Hulst Jr., W.G.
who is the son of: http://www.librarything.nl/author/vandehulstwg
van de Hulst, W.G.
It's further complicated because he's also the illustrator of many of his fathers books.
But my main self inflicted problem is that now the author of the work http://www.librarything.nl/work/12622100/ is linked to http://www.librarything.nl/author/hulstwgvande , which is the father (and wrongly noted, but that is another issue I think, correct should be /vandehulstwg )
http://www.librarything.nl/author/vandehulstjrwg also redirects to http://www.librarything.nl/author/vandehulstwg
so basically I need to have http://www.librarything.nl/author/vandehulstjrwg be his own author, and not be http://www.librarything.nl/author/vandehulstwg
We'll try, but it's somewhat hard to understand. For instance, on most of those pages I see only one W.G. van de Hulst. Why are they split if there's just one author out there? Yes, I understand, father and son - but either they have not adequately been split, or there shouldn't be a split.
P.s.: Also - why on earth is that page called "W.G. van de Hulst (verduidelijking)" - there is absolutely no "verduidelijking" (clarification) there.
I suppose they're not adequately split. The main problem is that http://www.librarything.com/author/vandehulstjrwg redirects to http://www.librarything.com/author/vandehulstwg , which is definitely wrong.
(changed to .com links)
There are a bunch of spelling variatations of both father and son as well.
I prolly made it worse by trying to fix it. Apologies.
Don't feel bad. I'm sure we all messed up a couple of things along the way. Just trying to understand what's what. No worries.
Right - this is going to take some time - especially since I'm not familiar with either father or son. But this site (http://www.wgvandehulst.com/) seems to provide at least some of the answers. Will get back on it tomorrow - if anybody else feels like it: be my guest.
perhaps some added info could help:
books written by dad W.G. van de Hulst:
books written by son W.G. van de Hulst Jr.:
> 166-169: Done, I think. But there is one title ("Lezen leren" - http://www.librarything.com/work/10208890) left because it shows on neither of those author info pages. Best guess would be that it's by the father, since he was a school teacher, but I'm reluctant to put it there on guesswork alone.
P.s.: And left disambiguation notices.
According to the Koninklijke Bibliotheek http://opc4.kb.nl/DB=1/PPN?PPN=865769540 it's indeed by the father.
Later edition is illustrated by the son.
thanks for the hard work.
Can someone combine the doubles in http://www.librarything.com/series/Lenin%2520Collected%2520Works please? Thanks!
I have worked on separating the books out of this no-title. What's left is a journal title (or 2).
Any help appreciated.
192> Working on it.
This was 'Kendall's Advanced Theory of Statistics'. I think I have all the volume works straightened out, and Kendall entered as 'other author' on editions with other authors as main author. If the different editions warrant separate works, someone else will ahve to separate them.
> 191, fdholt: Are we only separating everything out, at least for now?
#195 I thought so - but I don't usually work on magazine issues. My catalog contains complete runs of serials to match library practice so I don't run into this very often.
From #191, finished this. However this is also a black hole work; I set a canonical title of "No title black hole work" since I can see from the 3 reviews that there is no author or title in the member's libraries. Heaven knows where the covers came from. And there are over 20,000 other works. Sigh!
At least the stray books and mags are out. Hopefully this won't catch other stuff like Elric, stealer of books. (Do I have that title right?)
