a small disappointment|
But was it copy-edited by TNH?
well, that's a point. I'm sure they have some staff copy-editor who copyedited it. But when I see "edited by" I tend to think that at least means "The final version was read by" --is that not generally true?
Can't say what is generally true. My impression would be that whether the BNE reads the final version depends on the confidence reposed in the copyeditor by the BNE.
But given the general proliferation of even proof-level errors ("ho there" becoming "hot here" and the like) in the last few years, I'm not sure who is reading what before they commit some books to press.
