Coles of Devon Errata (56.html)

Almost every book contains errors, typographical mistakes and factual errors. After this book was typeset in 1867, the author identified many errors and included them in the Errata section at the back of the book. After Google created images of the pages, it passed the book through an OCR process to produce a text version of the book. This OCR process created many errors as well. The current editor (David Cole) editted the text version to eliminate many of these errors, when he produced the Editted Book (in rtf format) above. He has not yet produced a second version of the Editted Book. The known errors in the Editted Book (in rtf format) are listed in the text file above, named Editted Book Errata (in txt format). If you discover any additional errors, please send them to the WebMaster below.

It is David COLE's intention to include all errata about this book in this article:
