<< How did you find it, though? If I do a search for "Elements of
Typographic Style", all I get is results for the 1997 edition. Same if I do
a search for "Robert Bringhurst", too -- no 2001 edition (although I did
get a nice little reminder of what an incredibly interesting dude this dude
My guess is that Amazon simply hasn't updated their Web-catalog. I went
back just now to double check, and you are correct that they are
advertising the 1997 edition. But they sent me Version 2.4 (2001) -- that
is what I have on my desk as I write. When I bought it, I was just wanting
a copy. I was unaware of which version I was getting.
FWIW ... I liked the book so much, I bought a second copy, used hardback
copy of the book (second edition). But that I picked up from some bookstore
in Australia (I think).
You should write them, I bet they only have version 2.4 and couldn't give
you a 1997 edition if you wanted it.
