Than what? It's what I meant by "fetishize".

No we should not. Those chunks of Marx and Freud are useless out of their
context. We can and do use "alienation", "fetish", and esp. "production" in a
variety of ways without invoking Marx or Freud's definitions.

It has not been a simple process of adding layers for 400 years. You have to
distinguish Augustan 'improvement' from, say, C20 New Bibliography's
privileging of earliest authorial draft over later post-theatrical text.
Editing is an historically situated activity, not a removal of veils.

It was William Godshalk who used "biblioholism".

Actually it was me who talked about early seventeenth century biblioholism!
