No Code is Perfect: Corrections to the 2014 NEC

Mistakes happen, to err is human, and it is not unusual for the first edition of a book to have typos. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn holds the record for the most mistakes in a first printing. In general the more errors the first generation of a literary book has, the more valuable it is to a collector.
