We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

On the shelves by the Acq. Team I spy a copy of The Helminthdale Library Edition Of The Dewey Decimal System. Typed up on a sit-up-and-beg probably thirty years or more ago and bound in stapled sugar paper. And, typically of work by librarians, no publication date or citation of sources. At a glance (and I am no expert) it's the 16th edition with local "improvements." It is in mint condition.

"Am I to guess where this gem has come from?" I ask Noreen.

"You can tell where it's come from by the use it's been put to," she replies.
