Weird sorting by LC Classification
Join LibraryThing to post.
I have my books sorted by LC call number. I'm used to the fact that LT seems to use a lexical sort for call numbers, which isn't quite right for LoC callsigns (numbers should be sorted numerically in order, not as strings), but is close enough. But I'm getting a *really* weird behavior in my catalog. A chunk of my library is currently displaying in the following sorted order:
PZ5 .M2335 Wat
PZ7 .M1988 Bl
PZ7 .D1515 Ch
PZ7 .D1515 Ck
PZ7 .M1988 Do
PZ7 .M1988 He
PZ7 .M1988 Kn
PZ7 .D1515 Mat
PZ7 .R1817 We
PZ7 .B17005 Nop
PZ7 .B17005 On
What the? This isn't "sorted" on *any* definition of sort that I know of. (M D M D R B?)
Any idea what's happening here?
I also have some mis-sorting in PZ:
The first and second are in the wrong order.
