Book in Numbers (12/5)

I'm thinking of a famous book in two words. I have changed the letters to numbers so that letters which appear alphabetically before other letters are also numerically before other letters and vice-versa.

For example, the word STARTERS could be coded 45135234. The A=1, the E=2, the R=3, the S=4, and the T=5. The number one could not be W, X, Y, or Z because there are four numbers which come after it. Even though the letters R, S, and T are adjacent and have corresponding numbers which are consecutive (3, 4, and 5), this is not a rule, as the A and E demonstrate. The numbers are only an indication of a letters placement in the alphabet in regards to the other letters.

The famous book in numbers is coded as below:

36527642 1682.

What is it?
