    MMS

    What does "MMS" mean in the third paragraph here? Could it mean "manuscripts"?

    That sounds convincing, but it's not included here:
    http://www.acronymfinder.com/MMS.html
    But this paper has apparently been subjected to uncorrected scanning and OCR.
    Manuscript is usually 'ms', manuscipts, 'mss'.

    When I followed your link, I found only 'MSS':

    He proposed that each chronicle or historical docu-
    ment to be edited should be treated in the same way as
    if the editor were engaged on an Editio Princeps ; and
    for this purpose the most correct text should be formed
    from an accurate collation of the best MSS.

    Yes, it's MSS of course. Thank you. I thougt MSS, but I wrote MMS all the time, which is why I couldn't find it in a dictionary. Well done, me.
