. A line of type was dropped in the last paragraph of the review of the Traister review in the August issue. That first sentence in the paragraph should have read something like this:

The preservation administrators, however, need the rare book librarians as knowledgeable spokesmen for the book, to explain to nonlibrarians and unawakened librarians, and others, what the original can offer that a copy can't, and to give examples of research gone wrong because the evidence disappeared along with the original, as Marcus McCorison, among others, have done. (omitted line is underlined.)
