Corrections


The whole book constitutes nearly a half-million words, so I know this list will grow:

(Corrections in green have been incorporated into the Second Impression of the book, July 2004.)

p. v, title for p. 646: for "Dethe" read "Deth"

p. xviii, entry for c. 1190: for "Athurian" read "Arthurian"

p. xxxvi, third-last line: for "from" read "form"

p. xl:    for "pre-vowel shift" read "pre-vowel-shift"

p. 8, line 22: add quotation mark after "here"

p. 113, line 9: for "There" read "there"

p. 149, n. 5 (2): for the date of the fall of Constantinople, read "1453" for "1456"

p. 151, last line of title footnote:     for "prose Prose" read "Prose"

p. 265, line 17:   remove quotation mark at the end of the line

p. 342, line 36:   for "withoutt"  read "withoute"

p. 646, title and running titles:   for "DETHE" read "DETH" (the "-e" spelling is normal for Malory, but this edition's policy is to retain Caxton's spellings where Caxton is the source of the reading)
