The Elements of Style is an American English writing style guide. It is one of the most influential and best-known prescriptive treatments of English grammar and usage in the United States. It originally detailed eight elementary rules of usage, ten elementary principles of composition, and "a few matters of form" as well as a list of commonly misused words and expressions. Updated editions of the paperback book are often required reading for American high school and college composition classes.

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.
