I love them because they had a whole slew of Ethel M. Dell I couldn't find
anywhere else. My friend's father was on the staff of a member of the
House of Representatives and was therefore able to borrow stuff from them.
My friend herself was there doing some research on legal aspects of suicide
in the 17th century and needed to consult an unabridged edition of Coke.
The copy she ended up using -- although not taking out, of course -- had
been Thomas Jefferson's. Is that kewl or what?
