About this Item

First Printing of the Second Edition. Originally published in 1959 by Macmillan. This new edition includes an updated Introduction by White (dated 1971). A Fine copy in rich red cloth, in a Fine blue and green dustwrapper, not price-clipped. 78pp. This famous book has come under fire in recent years for not complying with some of the later grammarians' and linguistics academics' theories about language. But White's intention was never to lay down fail-safe pre- and pro-scriptions, but to establish a baseline for the practical application of straightforward prose, with an emphasis upon concision and directness. The title, after all, calls it "style" which is as much a definition of behavior (or an attitude) as it is about syntax and word usage. Generations of writers, particularly journalists, have found it pertinent and usefull. And it still is. Uncommon in this condition. Q09784. Bookseller Inventory # Q09784
