Individual biography no longer classes with the Soviet Union since it no longer exists as a country. Individual biography classes with the specific current country with which the biographee is associated, such as Georgia, Ukraine, Russia, Lithuania, etc.
Click on the caption "Biography" at HX917.2.Z65-.Z67 to break it down further:
HX917.2.Z67A-.Z67Z Individual, A-Z

I've noticed a glitch at the expansions of:
HX914-917 Russia. Soviet Union. Former Soviet republics
HX914 History. General works
HX914.5 Biography (Collective)
HX917.2 Russia (Federation)
HX917.2.A-.Z6 History. General works
HX917.2.Z7A-.Z7Z Local, A-Z
"Collective biography" but not "Individual biography" in the former
It seems that, until at least 2004, items were catalogued at HX914.7
A-Z (see: LCCN 2003022555)
And Indiv Bio are now to be put at HX917.2.Z67A-.Z67Z *without* author
cutters? (by date??)
LC has just classed a bio of Bakunin by Mark Leier apparently using this
HX917.2.Z67 B34 2006 (!)
This author has many older bios at HX915 and more recently (1980's -
2004) at HX914.7
In addition to the actual number problem...
Whenever I expand the range(s) and then browse forward/back through
them the specific range HX314-317 collapses again.
BTW, I will wait for a response before sending a separate error report
form report regarding the specific title at issue.
