"On this page, the reader sees a picture of Francis C. Richter, the Editor of this text. But the page is ripped from the bottom right corner towards the center of the page. I find some irony that the page that the Editor graces is the one page I found that was ripped. The Editor’s job is to find all errors that are in the text, but someone at some point in time permanently destroyed a page in the Editor’s book. Now that this copy was the one chosen to scan, the tear is even more permanent. Now it is an error the Editor can never fix."
