Diplomatic

From diplomatics. It describes the authentic transcription of a text e.g. letters or titles. Retaining the authentic spelling, the editor reproduces what he or she finds without making any corrections or changes to the text. The authentic reproduction of the text not only embraces orthography, but also capitalization, line breaks and punctuation.
