Yesterday, Carrie and I found H. K. Fowler’s A Dictionary of Modern English Usage (Oxford University press, 1950 printing) in good condition. There was another copy of The Elements of Style (revised edition). The former is excellent, with some very brief and direct discourse on several hundred topics. It is not too dated.

Quite the find, I’d say.
