The second row, or field, contains the Title of the work. The third field tells us the kind of publication, in this case, a book. The fourth field is information about the publisher.
Under the line, you see information about the location of this book. This particular book belongs to the LCSC Library. You may also see other libraries from the region listed here; that would mean that the book belongs to another library, but you can order it.
