Number of copies  Impression 

This table shows the results of the first collation of twenty one octavo copies of Sophonisba. The different states of each sheet are numbered consecutively, and the combinations in which they were found can be read off vertically. The 'stable' combinations, represented by more than one copy, have been considered as impressions and are tabulated to the right; this section corresponds to Table 3, except that one variant in sheet C had not been distinguished when the table was compiled. The first two columns at the left are distinguished by the presence of two different cancels.
