Okay thanks Mayrie, that's what I'll do.

  Hi Bob!

  Nope, ISBN is not required.  Just fill out the metadata without it.  Books 
published before I think 1970-something didn't have ISBN's so it's fine not to 
have one.

  Happy proofreading!

  Okay, I know this has been answered before, but ... .

  I am proofing "The Tretonian Ring" by L. Spraig De'Kamp, published in 1969.

  It doesn't appear to have an ISBN. I thought we had to have a cover page with 
title, author, publisher, publishing date and ISBN.

  Should I make one up? (Just kidding.) Actually, what am I supposed to do?
