How do I find out who has my specific edition?
This is the book:
The works of William Shakespeare in reduced facsimile from the famous folio edition of 1623 by William Shakespeare. Chatto and Windus (1876), Unknown Binding
The slightly longer answer is that although LT collects some edition specific data like publication and publication date, this data is not used in or accessible though any of the social functions. The only way to see another user's edition specific data (sometimes called book data as opposed to work data) is to search or browse that user's library and click on the book information link (the little index card) for the book in question. I suppose you could do this with every owner of a work with few owners, but for the collected works of Shakespeare...
There have been many requests to do more with edition data but, although there has been vague support for the idea from the staff, it doesn't seem to be at the top of the priority list.
What if I un-combined my work to see the answer to my question? I've never un-combined anything before...
And would happy to re-combine when complete.
Of course there may be other copies of your edition in LT as well, but their owners may not have entered the full title in the manner that you and the other user did. My answer above was really for the more generic case where different editions can not be easily distinguished by title. But even here where an option exists, it seems so cumbersome that I would say my short answer still holds.
