Happy Fiftieth!

We all know by now that Barbie turned fifty this year, but did you know that Strunk and White’s The Element of Style turns fifty today?

In celebration, Bob Minzesheimer put together some facts about the book for USA Today, giving the fiftieth-anniversary edition a nice boost in Amazon rankings (from #1,006 to #36).

The “deluxe” fiftieth-anniversary edition is a casebound version of the revised Fourth Edition, published in 1999.
