textual scholarship

To be discriminatingly analytical of these is a basic requirement of textual scholarship–that is, to endeavor to distinguish authorial changes from, say, misprints, miscorrections, typographical constrictions, book design semiotics, censorship cuts, or readership (mis)guidance. To be specifically committed in textual scholarship and editing to the textual process, however, provides a method not only for discriminating by exclusion, but also of discriminating and including multiple-natured textual changes in the editorial representation of the text.
