About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Elements of Style, The.

Description:

Rare, beautifully preserved First Trade Edition of this revered guidebook of essential rules of the English language. Small 8vo: 52pp. Publisher's original slate-blue paper-covered boards titled in black, black linen spine, former owner's name and address to front fly leaf. Binding strong, hinges undamaged, pages clean and bright with mild foxing restricted to front fly leaf. An exemplarily example. Time 100 (Nonfiction), 83. Strunk wrote The Elements of Style in 1918 and privately published it, in 1919, for in-house use at Cornell University, where he was professor of English. Harcourt, Brace published this first trade edition in 52-page format. "Strunk and White [E. B. White (Charlotte's Web), one of Strunk's first students and greatest admirers, who, in 1957, updated and revised the "Little Book," adding an introduction and a chapter on style] waded through the totality of our vast and complicated language and boiled it down to a terse 105 pages, including a glossary and index. No exhaustive explanations or sentence diagrams here-just 22 style rules and principles of composition, followed by 'a few matters of form,' a conclusive list of misused words and phrases and an all-encompassing 'guide to style.'" . . . The Elements of Style is a timeless reminder of the simplicity of proper writing and is likely to remain a useful tool for years to come." (Time 100) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Bookseller Inventory #
