Chris -- It does appear to be a major title change.  I have issues in hand to close out #38344722 & create a new record for the later title.  If the subtitle "A Current Bibliography" had been transcribed as part of the original title proper then the change would be minor because it would only consist of dropping an article.  However, the publisher has very clearly incorporated "Current Bibliogrphy" into the title proper presentation on the title page and has made a very clear statement in several places that his is 'reborn' publication.

I will send surrogates to NSDP so that they are aware a new ISSN needs to be assigned.  Thanks much for posting your message.
