Wrong book using ISBN 13

Post by kevinrailway » Wed Sep 14, 2016 11:30 am

But OK using ISBN 10

This is the book in question

https://booko.com.au/9780375752513/Mod- ... White-Fang

But a search using ISBN 13 Book > Update - Download from Internet, finds Classic Starts edition of Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.

But using ISBN 10 037575251X finds the correct book.

Any ideas?

Seems to be an issue with Amazon US.
If you take that out of the options it seems to work correctly.

Yes that does seem to be the problem.
The lady that owns the book, tells me that a sticker has been put over the ISBN 13 number, on her copy. So it appears that Amazon US has corrupted that book in their database and of course anyone who uses Amazon US as a reference source, gets it wrong too!

Thanks Doug.
