This study examined a single work, The Expedition of Humphry Clinker, to determine benefits and drawbacks associ-ated with creating such an entity-relationship model. Humphry Clinker was selected for several reasons—it has been previously studied, it is widely held, and it is a work of mid-level complexity. In addition to analyzing the biblio-graphic records, many books were examined to ensure the accuracy of the resulting FRBR model. While it was possible to identify works and manifesta-tions, identifying expressions was problematic. Reliable identification of expressions frequently necessitated the examination of the books themselves. Enhanced manifestation records where the roles of editors, illustrators, trans-lators, and other contributors are explicitly identified may be a viable alter-native to expressions. For Humphry Clinker, the enhanced record approach avoids the problem of identifying expressions while providing similar functionality. With the enhanced manifestation record, the three remaining
