I treated it as a new edition and used a different OCLC record from Jennifer's, 701796816, which is extensive. The series tracing is as for the earlier edition, simply using the numbering ; |v 1. The call number is M2 |b .M638 v. 1 2011, which effectively differentiates the volume on the shelf from the earlier edition (which would lack the date). I will report the brief vendor record as a duplicate of the fuller record.

How are others handling the newest volume of Musica Britannica:  I  The
Mulliner Book  ???

The notecard accompanying the volume states it is a "completely new edition
of a landmark collection of English music..." and notes that it is MB1.
Should I treat this as a totally new title with a distinct bibliographic
record? There is one in OCLC (#701799135) - but it is very scant. In my
opinion using MB1 as a volume number is problematic for shelving within the
regular series.

Any suggestions or direction you can provide are appreciated.
