ERRATA

Errata Sheet Explained Per
The Chicago Manual of Style


DEFINITION OF ERRATA

Cited from The Chicago Manual of Style: The Essential Guide for Writers, Editors, and Publishers The University of Chicago Press, 14th Edition 1993, ISBN (cloth) 0-226-10389-7, pg 42, section 1.107

"Errata, lists of errors and their corrections, may take the form of loose, inserted sheets or bound-in pages. An errata sheet is definitely not a usual part of a book. It should never be supplied to correct simple typographical errors (which may be rectified in a later printing) or to insert additions to, or revisions of, the printed text(which should wait for the next edition of the book) It is a device to be used only in extreme cases where errors severe enough to cause misunderstanding are detected too late to correct in the normal way but before the finished book is distributed. Then the errors may be listed with their locations and their corrections on a sheet that is tipped in, either before or after the book is bound, or laid in loose, usually inside the front cover of the book. (Tipping and inserting must be done by hand, thus adding considerably to the cost of the book.)"
