I often include information about dedicatees when I catalogue historical 
medical monographs, as dedications can supply useful information about 
members of the medical profession.

Not a silly question at all, Jennifer. I sometimes include access points for well-known dedicatees or for dedicatees in records for books by well-known authors.

There wasnít anything that jumped out at me, apart from the fact that a couple of you transcripted the commas, while others left it out. I havenít had an opportunity to do a full record, unfortunately, but I did leave them in.

This might be a silly question, but I wondered whether there might be any circumstances under which youíd include the dedicatee (James Shaen) as a 700 field. Given interest in provenance & associaions, I wasnít sure whether this might be relevant in some cases. It feels perhaps a bit excessive, but I can imagine there might be times when readers might be interested in information like that.

Best,

Jennifer

I think the records look pretty similar.

Those of you who donít have a lot of rare books cataloguing experience, is there anything in the records that looks unusual to you? Or do you have any other questions or comments?

When I created my record I thought for this exercise I would include citations/references in the 510 in the format of the latest edition of the Standard Citation Forms for Rare Materials Cataloging (available free online: http://rbms.info/scf/ ) to see what it was like even though we actually still follow the previous version within the ESTC. What do you think? Itís probably clearer for users not necessarily familiar with these reference works as such but I must say it does take longer to input.
