Whoever read my library's copy of The Masque of the Black Tulip has added all these corrections in the margins. It's not just spelling and typography; some of them call out the author for anachronistic dialogue or historical inaccuracies. Did they really not have lump sugar in Napoleonic times? This is why I always disliked buying used books in college; sometimes you couldn't tell if the previous owner was stupid or not.
