There are other cases in which one can be absolutely sure that a change indicates a concern for improving the readings. These are the cases where both the original and the corrected versions which survive, and especially where a change consists solely in altering a single specific reading. In common with many other printers of the period, Ottaviano Petrucci was apparently quite willing to undergo labor-intensive procedures to correct errors of faulty text or clefs, erroneous pitches or rhythmic values, or wrong folio numbers or signatures. Apart from the use of cancel leaves, seven ways of correcting the text seem to have been practiced during the 16th century. One or more of the other practices, however, can be found in almost all copies of Petrucci's books. Errata lists and complete second impressions on already printed pages are rare.
