Item description for Manual of Style: Containing Typographical Rules Governing the Publications of the University of Chicago Press together with Specimens of Types Used at the University of Chicago Press, 1927 Edition by University of Chicago Press...

The Chicago Manual of Style by University of Chicago Press Staff (Editor) - 9th Edition Countless publishing professionals have learned the details of their business from this classic guide for publishers, editors and writers. In the 1890s, a proofreader at the University of Chicago Press prepared a single sheet of typographic fundamentals intended as a guide for the University community. That sheet grew into a pamphlet, and the pamphlet grew into a book. Clear, concise, and replete with commonsense advice, The Chicago Manual of Style, offers the wisdom of a hundred years of editorial practice while including a wealth of new topics and updated perspectives. For anyone who works with words, whether on a page or computer screen, this continues to be the one reference book you simply must have.

This books is a classic!
 
This 1927 edition is obsolete  Jun 9, 2007
Don't be misled. This is not really The Chicago Manual of Style. This is the 1927 edition of "Manual of Style: Containing Typographical Rules Governing the Publications of the University of Chicago Press together with Specimens of Types Used at the University of Chicago Press." It's an eighty year old edition of what is, of course, in its current (15th) edition the bible of publishing. Interesting for historical reasons, maybe, but useless for the present day.

Why is it in print? Good question. Since it's so old, it's in the public domain, so apparently anyone can reprint it. But why would a publisher do that? And not even get the title right . . .

Not the real thing!!  Jun 5, 2007
This is the Barnes & Noble version of an old edition; this isn't actually published by the University of Chicago Press. Look for the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition (orange cover), for the latest & greatest from the UC Press staff.
