The Book : pp 1161 Misprints

Misprints are unavoidable in such a big book. That is the reason why an online erratum is absolutely necessary on this site, going back to thre first edition of the Book.
The carefull reading of it is continously slowed down by disturbing misprints. The record is held by an equation pp 1161, line 7,
"The final equation is then obtained from:"

x2+x13 should be replaced by 1+x2+x13

three lines further :
***(-1+x2)-x10+x11 should be replaced by *** x2-x10+x11

and I didn't pursued.

Incidentally, pp 1115, line 6,

n+Table[Prime[i] .... should be replaced by

n+Product[Prime[i] ....

Thanks for an initiative.
