Summary/Abstract: Identifying mutual relations between various records of the author's signature requires a translation of topographic dependencies onto chronological ones, reversal of the process of textual layering. The turn towards manuscripts (rough copies) as an autonomous study object, with its own meaning independent of the meaning of the text as such, can be associated with the French genetic school. Manuscript opposes the author's hand which reveals what supposed to remain unnoticed. It is materially linked with the author, it bears the trace of its hand and includes other traces of the person's historical biography, available for decoding. A worked out scheme of this particular archeology of text is directed at convoluted records and can serve as an exemplary research procedure.
