Separate works book numbers are restricted to the range between .A61-Z458.

A reassessment of D.H. Lawrence's Aaron's rod / by Paul G. Baker.

PR6023.A93 ‚b A6533 1983
LCCN: 83009224

3 is added to the base number A65 to indicate that the book is about Aaron's rod; the additional 3 is for Baker.

PR6023.A93 ‚b A6535 1983

Amores : poems / by D.H. Lawrence.

PR6023.A93 ‚b A7 1916
LCCN: 16019645

A named collection of poems is filed as a separate work.xA61-.xZ485 rather than under selections (A6).

Sons and lovers / D.H. Lawrence ; edited by Helen Baron and Carl Baron. PR6023.A93 ‚b S6 1992
LCCN: 91012669 //r944
Sons and lovers / D.H. Lawrence.

PR6023.A93 ‚b S6 1992b
LCCN: 92247589 //r94

Use of work letter "b" to differentiate different editions of the same work published in the same year; SML would use capital B in 852.

PR6023.A93 ‚b S6 1995
LCCN: 2004054702

D.H. Lawrence's Sons and lovers : a casebook / edited by John Worthen and Andrew Harrison

PR6023.A93 ‚b S6675 2005
LCCN: 87017831

For Sons and lovers, LC continues to use a legacy practice of simply adding digits to the base number S6; the most sensible practice would be to fit non-LC numbers into the LC sequence and leave out the 3.

Etudes lawrenciennes.

PR6023.A93 ‚b Z4582
LCCN: sn 96032180

Serials are now assigned .xZ4581-.xZ4589; the LC number range for periodicals dates from the late 80's. Although the number can be accepted as is, it is not considered good practice locally to end the book number on 1 or 2; if the number had been assigned locally, it would probably have been Z45828. Prior to that time LC classed periodical titles under General works about the author Z5-Z9999; hence the D.H. Lawrence review, LCCN 75015429, cataloged in the mid 70's, has been assigned: PR6023.A93 ‚b Z6234.

The New Mexico journals of D.H. Lawrence

<made up example>

PR6023.A93 ‚b Z46 1925

This is a made-up example since Lawrence never wrote an autobiography and there are no published journals or diaries by him. Autobiography is now assigned a single number, Z46.

Former practice would have assigned:

PR6023.A93 ‚b Z47 1925

The following explains how the obsolete number was constructed:

Autobiography was assigned range .xZ46-.xZ479. Within that range, expanded to arrange by title. Assuming this is the first autobiographical book cataloged, starting in the middle of the range with Z47 (esp. given a title near the middle of the alphabet, New Mexico ) left room to expand in either direction.

A writer's journal / D.H. Lawrence

<made up example>

PR6023.A93 ‚b Z46 2012

Former practice would have assigned:

PR6023.A93 ‚b Z478 2012

The following explains how the obsolete number was constructed:

Autobiography/journals/memoirs assigned range Z46-Z479. Within that range, expand to arrange by title. (Cf. correspondence, which is arranged by date) Z46 expanded to Z478, since title (Writer's) is near the end of the range.

Selected letters / D.H. Lawrence ; selected by Richard Aldington, with an introduction by Aldous Huxley

PR6023.A93 ‚b Z48 1996b
LCCN: 96149634

Z48 used for all correspondence; differentiated by date. No other edition of Lawrence's letters held by LC, so unclear why the "b" work letter has been added.

The selected letters of D.H. Lawrence / compiled and edited by James T. Boulton

PR6023.A93 ‚b Z48 1997
LCCN: 96024763

Z48 used for all correspondence; differentiated by date.

The letters of D.H. Lawrence & Amy Lowell, 1914-1925.

PR6023.A93 ‚b Z48 1985

Formerly:

PR6023.A93 ‚b Z485 1985

The following explains how the obsolete number was constructed:

Letters to & from. Range is Z481-Z499, arranged by correspondent. Since Lowell is toward the middle of the alphabet, cutter toward the middle of the range but leave room for expansion. Never assign a number at the extreme ends of the range, i.e. do not use Z481 or Z499, since this leaves no room for expansion. (Prior to the expansion of the P-PZ40 table, numbers for letters were assigned .xZ5-xZ999; the book number assigned on LCCN 85015087 for this title was: Z5336)

Letters to Thomas and Adele Seltzer / D. H. Lawrence ; edited by Gerald M. Lacy

PR6023.A93 ‚b Z48 1976

Formerly:

PR6023.A93 ‚b Z495 1976

The following explains how the obsolete number was constructed:

Letters to & from. Range is Z481-Z499, by correspondent. Seltzer is closer to the end of the alphabet, but Z499 should not be used. (Prior to the expansion of the P-PZ40 table, numbers for letters were assigned .xZ5-xZ999; the book number assigned on LCCN 76010782//r842 for this title was: Z5354)
