Description:
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1961   ¶ "FIRST EDITION" of this influential survey; including remarks on Burmann, Wright, and the Spanish lipogrammatists, with a paragraph from Gadsby (1939) on page 48. The latter, we note, was already such a rare book that Pierce was obliged to quote from it at second hand, never having seen a copy himself. (We also note that Pierce's secondhand quotation is more accurate than the second edition of Gadsby 2004, which -- for example -- 'corrects' Wright's spelling "carolling" in chapter 1.)  (Series: Harper modern science series; edited by James R. Newman.)   ||| Collation: In 16s (209 x 140 mm): 160 leaves, paginated [i-vi] vii-xi [xii], 1-305 [306-308].  Illustration: Diagrams, tables.  Binding: Publisher's red cloth lettered in gilt, publisher's device in blind, plain wove endpapers, yellow-and-red headbands, all edges trimmed and plain.

Description:
Lincoln (Nebraska): University of Nebraska Press, 1986     ¶ An interesting reference to Wright's famous lipogram Gadsby, showing the deterioration of Wright's text as it is copied and recopied by writers who don't have access to the first edition (1939) -- which was, and is, almost unobtainable. On page 53 here, Motte quotes Queneau 1964 quoting Pierce 1961 quoting Wright 1939: Pierce had it right ("carolling", "No"), but now Motte has it wrong ("caroling", "no"). The conclusion seems obvious enough, that there is no substitute for the first edition.   ||| Collation: 228 x 151 mm: 112 leaves, paginated [i-vii] viii-xiii [xiv], 1-209 [210 blank].  Illustration: Diagrams, tables.  Binding: Pictorial wrappers.  Condition: Very good.  .
