Abstract

This article is concerned with printing error in the First Folio of The Comedy of Errors. It examines the effect of these errors on the reader and argues for a revision of their silent correction in modern editions. In so doing, it highlights a seventeenth and early eighteenth century history of reading which tried, and often failed, to correct them.
