When you search for a particular author you get a list of books in which the words in the author's name appear in their text anywhere. If you search for the author's name in quotation marks you will get a list of books in which the author's name appears anywhere in the text in that exact order of words. In either case, just before the list of results you will have options to refine your search. One of those options is most relevant authors in a combo box. Click on that combo box and select the name of the author you are looking for and then the list of books returned should be only books by the author you are looking for.

For example when I search for a specific author it shouldn't come up with 1500 books. I should be able to search by type of book as well.
