Other .xA5-A59 (by language)
Selected works. Selections. x.A6 (differentiate by date)
<LC practice appears to use A6 for selections of single as well as multiple forms, so A6 would apply to both "selected poetry and prose" and "selected poems">
Separate works. By title. .xA61-x.Z458*

*For books about separate works, add a 3 to the book number and additional digits to fit the number in the subarrangement of books about the individual work. When assigning numbers for titles, keep in mind that the filing rules differentiate between numeric and spelled-out notation (1984 vs. Seventy-six trombones).
