Excerpt from Opus Epistolarum Des. Erasmi Roterodami, Vol. 1: Denuo Recognitum Et Auctum; 1484-1514
Necessary to do more than trace the variants through the sequence of editions; for experiment has shown that it is only very rarely that a change is introduced into an inter me... diate edition and removed in a later one, and such changes are either obvious errors or entirely negligible. The present text is therefore not an exact reproduction of any one edition but a confiation from all. In the matter of headings to letters I have usually given that of the earliest edition, with occa sioual exceptions where an amplification was made later; but as the variations of headings in different editions are often considerable but unimportant, I have allowed myself more freedom to neglect them in the critical notes than I have used in dealing with the letters themselves. Of the numerous variations in the spelling of words I have not attempted to preserve any record, except in the case of proper names, where differences of form are sometimes noted. Variations in order also are discarded except on rare occasions where the sense of the passage is affected. The dates are reproduced from the earliest form with a minuteness which may perhaps seem somewhat scrupulous; but I have wished the reader to feel that in scrutinizing them he has before him the precise details of the original.
