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.  .
