I hate arcania. For   people who hate to do research (or who can't  
find their Toledano Guides):

200.3 = Six Plays of Rodgers & Hammerstein
70.2 = James's Varieties of Religious Experience
12.3 = Donne's Complete Poetry and Selected Prose

James is a best-seller probably because it's quoted in the Big Book  
of Alcoholics Anonymous, used by all the 12-step programs.
Donne is likely needed by every English major.

204.1 is Dickens's Pickwick Papers. I have no idea what D4 is.
