View as plain text  
Just theories here:

The same book re-issued by another publisher might have a different ISBN.

A book with an insert (e.g., CDROM) may have a different ISBN, but be the "same" for some
purposes.

And mistakes can be made...

Ultimately, I suspect that the uniqueness of ISBN to what normal folks call the "same
book" is not as clear as one would hope.
