Excerpt from A Manual for Writers: Covering the Needs of Authors for Information on Rules of Writing and Practices in Printing
The Manual of Style of the University of Chicago Press, originally published as a guide for printers, proof readers, and copy-editors, was soon found to be so use ful to writers for the press, secretaries, stenographers, typists, and all other classes of persons interested in writ ing, that the demand for it became very great, and the volume has passed through three editions, each more voluminous than the preceding. Several of its chap ters, however, though of prime interest to printers, are of comparatively slight value to writers. The present volume has, therefore, been prepared with'the intention of supplying their special needs.
