The Elements of Style by William Strunk, Jr. is an American English writing style guide. It is one of the best-known and most influential prescriptive treatment of English grammar and usage, and often is required reading in US high school and university composition classes. The original 1918 edition of The Elements of Style detailed eight elementary rules of usage, ten elementary principles of composition, “a few matters of form”, and a list of commonly “misused” words and expressions. This book, printed as a private edition in 1918 for the use of his students, became a classic on the local campus, known as “the little book”, and its successive editions have since sold over ten million copies.
