A Perpetual Student
From October 1865 until February 1969, i.e. nearly nine semesters, Nietzsche stayed in Leipzig.There seems to be another misprint, or at least something amiss, on p. 15, where Latacz is discussing Nietzsche's edition of Certamen Homeri et Hesiodi:
By now he has already received (from Leiden) the handwritten transcription of the time by Stephanus from the Florentine Codex Laurentianus.I don't understand what "transcription of the time" means. A bold emender might suggest "text" for "time."
Update: Michael Hendry proposes a gentler remedy—"tome." On the QWERTY keyboard "i" and "o" are contiguous.
