Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

About the Author:

Fowler was for 17 years a teacher at Sedbergh School. He then lived and worked in London as a freelance writer for four years, before going to Guernsey to form a remarkable successful writing partnership with his brother Francis. Described by one of his pupils at Sedbergh as 'a man of great fastidiousness (moral and intellectual)', Fowler was a private scholar and keen sportsman, living a simple life in Guernsey, yet his remarkable guide to English usage has become one of the most celebrated reference books of the twentieth century.


This work contains sections on vocabulary, punctuation and "airs and graces" as well as contentious syntactical sections.
