Hi,

I'm looking for the electronic version of the 4th edition, the one revised by E.B. White that has an additional chapter titled "An approach to style".

It's not the original 1918 edition that I find everywhere (also here). Do you know where I could find it? Any suggestion is welcome :)

There are some printing errors in Chapter 3. It seems some html tags appear at page 16, 17, and 18. Not a big deal, but kind of annoying.

You're right, switched to the cover of the 1918 edition and fixed the description.

I believe the cover and notes need to be corrected. This seems to be the original written by Strunk alone before E.B. White made modifications to it. While still an excellent book, White's changes are invaluable. Again, still a worthwhile book and glad to have it available but the note about it also being known as "Strunk and White" is incorrect.
