Inspired by this puzzle, you decide to visit your local library in the hope of checking out a copy of Ximenes on the Art of the Crossword.
Upon entering, you ask the librarian whether the library has a copy, at which point she hands you an index card from the catalog.
With the location of the book in hand, you rush headlong into the stacks.
But wait, something seems off about the card she gave you... As you wander deeper into the library, you stare at it, trying to figure out what it means.
It looks to you like a simple keyword cipher was used to encrypt all but the first line. Maybe solving the first clue will allow you to decipher the second, and so on, until the final line is revealed.
