 Notes on the Text and Its Punctuation
Here the text follows the punctuation of the editio princeps, 1818, with two exceptions: a comma is inserted (1) after scale (line 201), on the authority of the Bodleian manuscript (Locock); and (2) after neck (line 205), to indicate the true construction.
The editio princeps (1824) has a colon at the end of this line, and a semicolon at the close of line 415.
The editio princeps (1813) reads burst upon me. Doubtless under was intended by Shelley: the occurrence, thrice over, of upon in the ten lines preceding would account for the unconscious substitution of the word here, either by the printer, or perhaps by Shelley himself in his transcript for the press.

Julia Haig Gaisser's theme is the reconstruction and the elucidation of the text of Catullus, from the editio princeps (Venice, 1472) to the time of Joseph Scaliger about a century later.
The next step in the demonstration is to observe the text of some passages in the 1472 editio princeps, with which (or its clones) the Renaissance scholars had to work until the appearance of the first Aldine edition in 1502.
The editio princeps appeared almost exactly a century after the manuscript quoted above, a century during which not much occurred to improve either the text of Catullus or the state of knowledge about him in general.

 Center for Hellenic Studies - Issue I: Posidippus
This first edition, or editio princeps, was followed in 2002 by a second edition, edited by C. Austin and G. Bastianini, Posidippi Pellaei Quae Supersunt Omnia, also published by LED, which contains all of Posidippus' extant verse, with facing Italian and English translations.
Such questions are not easy to settle in an academic culture where access to the editio princeps, the first published edition of the papyrus, is difficult and where secondary literature is slow in arriving at a critical mass of reasoned opinion.
While based ultimately on the editio princeps and, partly, on the editio minor, this text continues to be re-thought in light of ongoing restorations proposed in publications and general communication among Classics scholars.

 The Tale of the Armament of Igor: Introduction: The History of the Manuscript
In 1795 Count Musin-Puškin, a distinguished arcæologist, bought from the archimandrite of the Spaso-Yaroslávski monastery a bound volume of manuscripts, amongst which was the original of this text.
In 1800 he published the editio princeps under the title of a 'A heroic song of the foray against the Pólovtsy of the hereditary Prince of Nóvgorod-Sěverski, Ígoŕ Svyatoslávič.' There were 1200 copies printed, a few of which survived the fire of Moscow in the year 1812 in which the original MS.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2003.09.19
This editio minor produced by Colin Austin and Guido Bastianini (hereafter, A-B) is a welcome complement to the editio princeps of the newly discovered Milan papyrus roll of epigrams published in 2001.
Nor do all of the new poems appear to be of the same quality as those attributed to Posidippus in the Palatine Anthology, but then the act of selection may create a false sense of a poet's work, since it tends to prefer poems with timeless and elegantly presented themes.
This editio minor takes the inevitable next step of printing not only the epigrams of the Milan roll but all other works conventionally attributed to Posidippus, as well as a number that are disputed.

 No Nu in Line 2 of 7Q5, Part 1
For O'Callaghan to be correct, this tau and omega must be followed by a nu, rather than by an iota adscript and a possible alpha as was first suggested in 1962 by Boismard in the editio princeps.
(4) Although the infrared photograph of 7Q5 in the editio princeps lacked clarity and sharpness, in none the less appeared to substantiate Boismard's initial decipherment.
In the case of Thiede's photograph and that of the editio princeps, (#11 and #12), the similarities between both are due to the fact that the light source for both comes from the right.

 Greek Qumran Fragment 7Q5: Possibilities and Impossibilities
It might just be possible to admit Spottorno's omega as a remote alternative, even though no one, beginning with the editio princeps, has ever seen it before.
Sigma instead of epsilon for the third letter was one of the two possibilities suggested in the editio princeps; the remnants appear to belong to a curvature, however, and would be much too high for the horizontal stroke of an eta.
Personally, I should have preferred a mere dot, but O'Callaghan's alpha (contrary to the sigma of the editio princeps) is supported by a concrete textual suggestion.

The editio princeps of Lucan was issued at Rome by Sweynheym and Pannartz in 1469.
This edition describes itself as “editio decima, denuò recensita, à quamplurimis erroribus repurgata, and aeneis figuris ornata.” The work begins with an elaborate engraved title-page signed “G. Schoute, fecit,” followed by a printed title–page in fl and red.

In preparing the volume I have worked as far as possible on the principle of recognizing the editio princeps as the primary textual authority.
The present text is the result of a fresh collation of the early editions; and in every material instance of departure from the wording of those originals the rejected reading has been subjoined in a footnote.
Again, wherever—as in the case of “Julian and Maddalo”—there has appeared to be good reason for superseding the authority of the editio princeps, the fact is announced, and the substituted exemplar indicated, in the Prefatory Note.

The extremely damaged letter in line 1 was not even tentatively identified in the editio princeps (10), even though the working hypothesis of an epsilon was admitted.
O'Callaghan's eta is confirmed by the editio princeps and indeed by all published enlargements, incuding an infrared photograph (13).
As for the practically invisible trace of the last letter in this line, it is severely damaged by a turning to the right of the papyrus, probably caused by an early attempt at destruction (15).

The readings are based on the most recent autopsy of the artifact, that of Pardee, "Arslan Tash", which includes a full epigraphic study and commentary.
Only one other collation of the original artifact has been done since the editio princeps, that of J. Teixidor ("Les tablettes d’Arslan Tash au Musée d’Alep", AuOr 1 [1983] 105-108), whose comments on readings are cursory and do not extend beyond line 17, where the text is most difficult.
For an overview of the history of publications on this inscription since the editio princeps, and a defense of its authenticity, see J. VAN DIJK, "The Authenticity of the Arslan Tash Amulets", Iraq 54 (1992) 65-68.

His determined pursuit of a reliable and accurate basis for the perfection of his translation of Heliodorus' ancient Greek novel became for him an end in itself and went well beyond the immediate need to overcome the many deficiencies in the editio princeps of the Greek text.
The truth of Montaigne's compliment to Amyot's "constance d'un si long travail" applies as much to his translation of the Ethiopian Story as to his Plutarque français.
It was a fruitful coincidence that Alessandro de' Pazzi's influential translation of Aristotle's Poetics (1536) should have appeared on the scene so close to the time of the editio princeps of the Ethiopian Story (1534).
