Elements of Style 1959 William Strunk Jr with Revisions by E B White
Elements of Style by William Strunk, Jr. with Revisions, An Introduction, and A New Chapter on Writing by E. B. White, this collectible first edition hardcover book was published in 1959 and immediately became the definitive guide for all writers.
Strunk's "little book" for his students at Cornell University received a tremendous and enthusiastic "facelift" by White, one of those students, and the resulting reception by subsequent students and writers must not be allowed to fade.
The book has seen a number of editions, but this original first edition is indeed rare and hard to find today.
This vintage hardback is a little worn with yellowing pages, a name on the flyleaf, a partially removed bookplate, a slightly ragged yellow dust jacket, but strongly bound, no tears, a penciled mark or two but still full of common sense and great advice - revise, do not overwrite, remember the fundamentals.
The book measures 5 inches by 8 inches by 1/2 inch and has 71 pages.
