Shana, thank you -- I see that you are indeed correct -- the other edition in the stack is the newer issue. This must be one of those lovely examples of serials in the guise of monographs fighting back... I can't believe the publisher labeled it vol. 22, no. 1 (and no. 2).

Wait, I used to work in the retail book business. Publishers don't really surprise me anymore!

I sent a message awhile back asking NSDP to investigate what's going on
with the Etudes francophones / Nouvelle etudes francophones journals.  I
believe the new record for Etudes francophones (OCLC# 190846710) should
not have been created as the original title (OCLC# 34979714) never
actually ceased as we have ongoing issues and there was no new ISSN
requested or issued.

Etudes francophones appears to have been published simultaneously with
Nouvelle etudes francophones (a spinoff, the 78x is coded as partially
continues) since 2004.

The most recent issue we have of Etudes francophones is vol. 22, no. 1
and 2 (printemps et automne 2007).  It has an ISSN of 1093-9334.

Hopefully NSDP can sort it out!  They asked that nothing be done to the
records while they sort it out.

From 1995 to 2004, the journal was entitled Etudes Francophones (ISSN 1093-9334), from 1993 to 1995, Revue Francophone (ISSN 0890-9555) and from 1990 to 1993, Revue Francophone de Louisiane (ISSN 0890-9555).
