Bad Copy

Such copy as is ill written, or has much Italick, Latin, or Greek, or marginal notes, or few breaks, &c. — M.
The term is now used only of manuscript that is badly written, and the words or the sense difficult to make out, with many interlineations. When this is the case, it is usual to pay something extra per sheet. For Greek, and marginal notes, an extra sum is always given, as may be seen in the Scale of Prices.
