250 (Edition statement)
- If there is an edition statement on the copy and you can verify that
a close approximation to it exists in the book, accept the copy's 250
formulation as it stands. The number of the edition should match exactly.
Edition statements may be abbreviated--when abbreviating, use the rules
of the language of the item.
- If there is no 250 on the copy, insert one only if you find a formally
presented statement on the book.
- If your book has something different than what is on the copy, set
it aside and seek advice on how to handle it.
