Excerpt from The Poems of John Donne, Vol. 1: Edited From the Old Editions and Numerous Manuscripts; With Introductions Commentary; The Text of the Poems With Appendixes

A short examination of the manuscripts convinced me that it would be very unsafe to base a text on any single extant manuscript, or even to make an eclectic use of a few of them, taking, now from one, now from another, what seemed a probable emendation. On the other hand it became clear that if as wide a collation as possible of extant manuscripts were made one would be able to establish in many cases what was, whether right or wrong, the traditional reading before any printed edition appeared.
