An Old Book I Found
So I found a 1st edition of The Elements of Style by Strunk & White, a little text I have referred to here at the blog for its helpful and sometimes idiosyncratic writing advice, but who would care? Except me. And Heather who sweetly and excitedly said, "One from when Strunk was still alive!" Sadly, Strunk died in 1946 and the first edition with White came out in 1959. Why should that be sad when White is dead as well. I'm going to depress myself if I keep going.
