Grose (published by Longmans, Green and Co.), and by L. A. Selby-Bigge (published by Oxford University Press). The reading of the two texts has been adopted where they were at variance with the third, and the most plausible chosen were all three were at variance, as happened in a few cases. All corrections, however, were minor and did not materially alter the text."--Note on the Text. Includes bibliographical references (pages lx-lxii).
