Irrelevant Guidebooks?

I am curious how guidebooks are listed for certain areas. Often times I see completely irrelevant guidebooks listed under an area. For example, take Owens River Gorge in California. When one clicks on the Guidebooks link for that area (…), 6 guidebooks pop up.
1. Owens River Gorge Climbs (11th Edition) - This is the current edition relevant to climbing to Owens River Gorge and is the only guidebook of the 6 that should be listed.
2. Bishop Bouldering Select Guidebook - this guidebook is NOT for Owens River Gorge. It does not cover a single route or boulder problem in Owens River Gorge. Why is it in this section?
3. Bishop Bouldering (2nd edition) - same thing as #2. This guidebook has absolutely nothing to do with Owens River Gorge.
4. Bishop Area Rock Climbs - Not a single climb in this guidebook for Owens River Gorge. Again, why is this guidebook listed here?
5. Mammoth Area Rock Climbs - Same as #4? Why is this guidebook in Owens River Gorge section?
6. Owens River Gorge Climbs (10th Edition) - Ok, this one is for the Gorge, but it is outdated and has been replaced by #1, the 11th edition.
