Abstract: Analytical bibliography's aim is to understand books and other printed objects as artifacts and how they were produced. Bibliographic metadata can represent important historical trends and resolve issues such as the ordering of editions. In this paper, we present the state of the art analytical approach for determining editions and their ordering. By providing harmonized data and information on historical developments in book production, this will be a great aid for projects aiming to do large-scale text mining. Contemporary text mining approaches do not utilize edition level information to the fullest extent and therefore are limited in their scope. Using the ESTC metadata, we have developed harmonizing techniques that convert free-form text into more coherent entries for statistical analysis. Furthermore, a new gold standard was developed for validation purposes, with multiple layers of information. The use of this data would significantly enhance the understanding of early modern publishing.
