This small reference book was first intended (in 1893) for the use of compositors and readers of the OUP, but now offers to all writers, publishers, and printers guidance on such matters as spelling, punctuation, capitalization, italicization, abbreviations, setting of foreign languages or treatment of footnotes. Its 38th edition (1978) was fully reviewed in The Indexer, and the verdict then pronounced appears on the jacket of this new edition: '. . . few writers who want their work to be printed could fail to gain greatly from the new insights to be obtained by reading Hart. Most of them will want to keep this little book always within arm's reach while working.'
The 39th edition is revised, updated and reset, and brought in line with The Oxford dictionary for writers and editors to which it forms a companion volume. It includes a new section on machine-readable codes, and the foreign languages section has been expanded to cover the setting of Welsh, Dutch, and Afrikaans. The new edition will be as useful as its predecessors.
