From Manuscript to Print: the Evolution of the Medieval Book


Cicero, 1894
horizontal rule
This 1894 critical edition was made by comparing the best surviving manuscripts of the text. The editor supplies variant readings at the bottom of each page. In addition to the painstaking care he has taken to restore the text to its original version, the editor has imposed paragraph divisions and numerical distinctions to make it easier to read and reference.
