Summary/Abstract: The author of the textological sketch studies the successive editions of Wacław Berent’s "Ozimina" ("Winter Corn"). The first edition dated 1911 (as a matter of fact – end of 1910) was wrongly edited (e.g. accumulation of typographical errors as “samnambula,” though the same page contains the proper “somnambula [insomnia]” or “brewiona” instead of “bierwiona [log of wood]” etc.); the number of errors exceeds one hundred. The author of the article suggests a number of corrections to the novel’s text, e.g. he suggests a change of “komin [chimney]” into “kominek [fire place]” (as the fire place, not the chimney is the issue here), “siepały” (non-reflexive “struggled”) would be “siepały się” (reflexive ”struggled”) and “druki drohomilskie [Drohomil prints]” – “druki dobromilskie [Dobromil prints]”.
