Does anyone know of a site where I could look up information on books by ISBN number? I have found that when looking for used books in particular, not enough information is shown on sites like Amazon, etc. to make a purchasing decision, i.e. sometimes not even the language direction is displayed. However, they do list the ISBN, which is specific to different editions, so if I could look up that somehow, I would get the info I need.

Any help appreciated!

Although, when I tried out a few ISBN numbers it linked me to amazon.com.

Visu labu!

At http://www.isbn.org/ you might be able to find a link to what you're looking for. They don't give this information themselves. Best regards. MG.
