Order Nr. 54486

Fourth printing. Near fine in near fine jacket. Follett (1887-1963) died before this was finished. Many entries are mini-essays (now, is that good usage?) on topics important to Follett: the creeping "noun-plague," insidious "Germanisms" (not what you might think), and why split infinitives are not always bad.
