Publisher's Comments

Two classics are combined in this single reference intended for students, scholars, publishers, and anyone concerned with the rules for handling abbreviations, capitalization, punctuation, scientific and mathematical symbols, quotations, illustrations, tables, notes, indexes, and foreign languages. One is The Oxford Guide to Style, which is the revised and enlarged edition of Horace Hart's Rules for Compositors and Readers at the University Press, Oxford ; known as Hart's Rules , it has seen 39 editions since its first publication in 1893. The other classic is the Oxford Dictionary for Writers and Editors an expanded and updated edition of the 1981 original (which was itself successor to 11 editions of the Authors' and Printers' Dictionary first published in 1905). Editor R.M. Ritter has brought information up to date; US usage and spelling are clearly indicated when they differ from the British. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
