About This Item

New York: Macmillan Publishing Co., Inc., 1979. 3rd Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine/Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Third Edition, 1st printing (Full Number Lines). Previous editions of 1959 and 1972. 85 text pages, an introduction (7 pages), plus a total of 5 endpaper leaves (for notes?). Classic composition book used by many adults and college students. Strunk emphasized clarity in writing, cutting out the deadwood, using the active voice, putting statements in a positive form, and writing with simplicity and sincerity. E.B. White, a student of Strunk at Cornell University, later added another chapter. The book is very well-preserved clean book with only an owner's name and a tiny corner tip bump. It may have been only partially read -fairly tight. The dust jacket is unclipped with original price. The front panel has a large mended curved tear with a small chip in the middle. A second tear, approximately .5" is closed and has a tiny top chip. The spine tail area has 1 V-shaped chip extended to bottom of jacket front.
