Latin term or phrase:desunt caetera
in writings of johnathan swift at end of battle of the books
Explanation: It's a phrase added at the end of manuscripts whose last pages (or sentences) have been lost. You can find it in Roget's Thesaurus under 'incompleteness' (see ref. 1). For an example of an incomplete text + caetera desunt, see ref. 2 but any web search can give you many more.
