Thanks for the illumination of "bisson conspectuities," a phrase that's fascinated me for a long time. I didn't know the textual history and would never have thought Theobald could make an inspired emendation. "Glean" is the perfect word, too, since it implies a painstaking, discerning picking out, something a bleared vision could never do.
