The archivist misplaced his shopping list inside one of the books. He has a handy way to remember which volume he placed it in, though. The volume number was a four-digit number, in which all four digits were unique. If you take the largest possible four-digit number that can be made by rearranging the four digits, and you subtract from that the smallest possible four-digit number that can be made by rearranging the four digits, the number you get is volume number, but with the digits in reverse order.
