absolutely... even if I can't follow Severian's family tree [is there
a pun about this at the Inn of Lost Loves?  maybe I shouldn't start
this one off] it does appear to be pretty clear this time.  Is there
any evidence in the story that the place with the volumes, scrolls and
the series of guardians *can't* be the library, which is the obvious
explanation?  I worry about accepting obvious explanations, too, but
you can't really dispose of them till they fail to fit.
