Publisher Description

First published in 1918, ‘The Elements of Style’ is an American English writing style guide, which have since become an essential tool for writers and educators in its numerous editions down the years. The rules of ‘The Elements of Style’ are rooted in common sense and tradition. The original comprised “eight elementary rules of usage, ten elementary principles of composition, a few matters of form, a list of 49 words and expressions commonly misused, and a list of 57 words often misspelled.” E. B. White greatly enlarged and revised the book for publication by Macmillan in 1959. That was the first edition of the so-called Strunk & White, which Time magazine named in 2011 as one of the 100 best and most influential books written in English since 1923.
