In eighty-two sections, Robert Renehan presents a series of illustrative examples of the textual critic at work. The passages chosen demonstrate typical causes of corruption such as “trivialization,” visual and aural confusions, interpolation, transposition, false division of words, haplography, deliberate tampering, and, above all, psychological errors.

In no sense is the work intended to be a manual on how to make a conjecture.
