1.2 Work description

The principle of transcription as applied to a work: Transcription (a copy of the text that appears on the item) will actually be taken from a particular item that is an exemplar of the original manifestation of the original expression (“first edition). Transcribed data elements linked to a work implicitly convey to the user the information that all linked expressions, manifestations and items will carry this transcribed information. When this is not the case, different title and statement of responsibility information should be treated as pertaining either to an expression or to a title-manifestation; different distribution information on subsequent manifestations should be recorded at the manifestation level (see below).
