(Note: these are old books, some from the 1800s, histories, etc. So there are no ISBN numbers.)
Go to Preferences - Tweaks and in the lefthand column highlight the tweak named Control how dates are displayed. In the bottom right box you'll see something like this:
Code:
# Control how dates are displayed

gui_pubdate_display_format = 'yyyy'

gui_timestamp_display_format = 'dd-MMM-yy'

gui_last_modified_display_format = 'dd-MMM-yy'
The first of the 3 is the one you need to change the format of published date.

The box above this contains the help notes for setting date formats.

Hope this helps.
