XVII on p. 64-67" has been erroneously numbered as XXIII; the running titles on p. 17, 53, 69, and 85 have been erroneously printed as "De D rceo.", "De Dirceo.", "De Drceo.", and "De Dirceo." respectively; not mentioned is the erroneously printed "De Dirc.e.o." on p. 111 in the John Carter Brown Library copy
