subtract

Although in my painstaking, microscopic labors over the next few weeks, I sometimes added word here and subtract words there, my changes were always made with a profound respect for the untold thousands of highly intelligent, well-considered choices that had taken place behind the scenes.

Is this a typo or does "subtract" not have a past tense form?

    Okay, I found the book on Google Books and I'm sure it's scanned from a physical book, it says:
    I sometimes added words here and subtract words there.
    They can't miss two letters, can they?
