Series of Double Volumes

Post by J.F. Le Deist » Fri Sep 13, 2019 7:30 pm

Hello, I need your help.
I have to record a series of french double novel volumes similar to the famous american "Ace Double Novels" volumes in "tete-beche" : ... /907761358

How would you record them ?
who in author ? what book in titles ?
or no title in title field, no author in author field, and the 2 books in contents ?

All ideas are welcome, I wait your answers before to record the book list.

Thanks and have a good week-end

I'd probably do it this way:

For the title: Title of Book 1 / Title of Book 2
Then I'd list each author. If you have a bunch of books like this, you might choose a role for the author like "Contributor" or "Author of Included Book".
Then I'd include each separate "book" within the contents of the overall book.

Essentially, I'd treat the volume as a collection of 2 short stories where the title is simply the titles of both stories.
