errata refers to errors. In the past, printing a book was a long a laborious process. It was not uncommon for a book to go through printing and be almost ready for binding when mistakes are found. If they are significant enough, they will be put in a listing of errors, titled a list of errata and printed in the last signature of the book. The other alternative would be to reprint the portions of the book, which took a lot of time and labor, as well as paper. It was less costly, and created less of a risk of errors in putting the book together, if the errors were correcting in this way rather than reprinting. Less common today because typesetting is automatic and done using computers that have spell check.
