Hi Gerald,

I don't know if this is much help, but here is what it says about the book at the Science Fiction Book Club web site.

by Tamora Pierce

800 pages

Publisher: Random House Children's Bk.
Publication Date: August, 2002


Ten long years have come and gone since the Kingdom of Tortall proclaimed that girls could take on a page?s training. At long last, one young girl has come
forward: Keladry of Mindelan.

Kel and her family spent several years in the Yamani Islands, where she received warrior training in the arts of self-control and weaponry. Her aptitude
seems clear, but the training master, Lord Wyldon of Cavall, fears that women are too weak to serve. Since her parents are highly regarded by the court,
Lord Wyldon gives in, but on one condition: Kel must serve a one-year probation.

Kel is furious, but she feels compelled to accept. She longs to become a knight like her heroine, Alanna the Lioness, the King?s Champion. Drawing on her
Yamani training, Kel braces herself against the hazing of her classmates, who believe that no girl is good enough to serve side by side with a boy.

But this girl is determined to succeed. Kel refuses to let anyone or anything?including fearsome Immortal monsters such as the Spidren, Tauros or Hurroks?prey
on the weak or the small.

And this determination will stand her in good stead, as she readies herself for a future that includes an evil sorcerer who is the greatest monster of all?.
Includes First Test, Page, Squire and Lady Knight. Jacket art by Greg Newbold. (790 pp.)

I don't know how this squares with the copyright page info you sent which included:

First SFBC Science Fiction Printing: November 2004.

All rights reserved under International and Pan-American Copyright
I would be tempted to say that since the author is the copyright holder, I would go with the 2002 date, as printings and editions don't always impact a copyright.
I also wouldn't worry too much about the ISBN if it is causing problems, as it is an optional field anyhow. If the submitter however, filled out the ISBN field, it shouldn't be a problem as the system accepted it already.
I would also say, if the submitter doesn't get back to you, go for the replacement pages, as long as you number them accordingly, even if they are from a single volume edition.
