[Classweb-users] Collections of English poetry (PR1170 -- PR1175)

I have a question regarding the Schedule for Collections of English poetry:

PR1171  Collections published before 1801
PR1173  Collections published 1801-1960
PR1174  Collections published 1961-
PR1175  Selections

What is the purpose of PR1175 as distinct from the "Collections published
..." series?

I have tried to determine it by the types of works in LC's collection @
PR1174 versus those @ PR1175
without a satisfactory understanding.

Norton anthologies are @ PR1174, as I would expect, but some similar
anthologies are in PR1174.

Note also that all the "collections" are inherently "selections" any way
so, again, why "Selections"?

Thanks for any guidance.
