SQL: querying records based on ORDER BY

Question:
Can you make a query that returns records based on ORDER BY something? There may be mutiple instances, but I only want the one that is the very first based on what you ordered by.

Answer:
Well, this seems to ask for a MAX or a MIN of something, but that brings aggregates into the picture. Try:


select max(title_id)
from titleauthor 
group by title_id
order by max(title_id)
