According to the authority file, this work should have the uniform title Short stories. Selections. English.

A2 is the second cutter for collected or selected translations in English.  The schedule says to subarrange by date, so I don't think A28 would be correct.

If the Lapse of Time were a single work, the second cutter would be based on the original title (Liu shi), e.g. L5, with an addition based on the translation table in the Classification and Shelflisting Manual G 150: L513.

> Hi everyone,

> I see an OCLC record #62791637 that has the second cutter starting with L.
> This seems unusual to me given what I see in the table.
