Citing a chapter in an edited book with two editors gives garbled citation

edited 18 days ago
I am using Zotero 5.0.89, creating citations in "MHRA 3rd edition (note with bibliography)" style.

I am citing a chapter from a book that has an author (for the chapter) and two editors (for the book). I have set up all three contributors properly (I think) using the drop-down to indicate the author and editor(s), and I have properly (I think) filled in {last} and {first} names for them all, but when I add a citation, it shows:
---
Rossitsa Gradeva, ‘Secession and Revolution in the Ottoman Empire at the End of the Eighteenth Century: Osman Pazvanto$lu and Rhigas Velestinlis’, in Ottoman Rule and the Balkans, 1760-1850, ed. by Antonis Anasasopoulos and Elias Kolovos, first (Rethymno, Crete: University of Crete, 2007), p. 73.
---
Note the ", first" in the name of the second editor. Am I doing something wrong?

The same error appears in the bibliography, thus:
---
ed. by Antonis Anasasopoulos and Elias Kolovos, first
---

below is (I hope) the relevant xml fragment from the .rdf file

  • You have to wrap code in <code></code> blocks. (You can edit your post above.)
  • Thanks, dstillman. I've edited my post, as you suggested.
  • Just in case it makes a difference, and because I know how to do it now, here is the full .rdf
