  1. Cancels

    cancel, sb., is a bibliographic term for a replaced leaf in a printed book. The technique for this is usually to tear out the rejected leaf, and paste a new one to the stub left on the cognate leaf. Alternatively, a false stub may be added. The cancelled leaf may be rejected on account of spelling or typing errors, a wording change or addition, or need to suppress libellous or otherwise offensive text. Leaves have been cancelled from around the dawn of printing in the mid-15th century, peaked from about 1600 to 1800, but the practice is less common today, since it is now cheaper to replace the whole sheet. If the replacement is made before publication, the book can exist in two states. If after sale, from a new leaf supplied by the binder to the purchaser, it is termed an alternative ISSUE. The terminology, coined by R W Chapman in 1930, is: English: cancel, pl. cancels, or cancel leaf, pl. cancel leaves. Latin: cancellans, pl. cancellantia :- The new
