Handling of Multiple Editions

I do have several files (all of them e.g. *.epub) which belong to different editions of the same book. They share of course autor and title. They differ however significantly in content and I would like to keep organized without changing the title to "Adventures of an Old Ebook Reader (ed.1, 2007)" "Adventures of an Old Ebook Reader (ed.2, 2010)" etc.
Is there a way to do that in Calibre?

You will need to have different book entries for each edition. You can have them all have the same title but differentiate them with tags. Your best option would probably be to put the edition in the title.

I note that this cause problems when fetching Metadata.
Would an option to parse out Parenthetical values auto-magically when searching for M-D?
? Then what do we do if "Over-write Title.." is ticked ?
