Excerpt from Handbook of Style: In Use at the Riverside Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts

Absolute completeness has not been aimed at; the dictionary has not been displaced; common-sense and good judgment must always be used by compositors and proof - readers. It is hoped, however, that the Handbook will prove of practical use in standardizing work and preventing misunderstandings.

The constant aim in preparing it has been to express the traditions and customs that have grown up at The Riverside Press during more than half a century of work. On many points, however, the style manuals of several other large printing offices have been consulted (especially those of the University of Chicago Press, the Government Printing Office, the Plimpton Press, the Norwood Press, and R. R. Donnelley Sons Company), and grateful acknowledgment is here made of the help they have afforded. Particular credit should be given to the very thorough and excellent Manual of Style published by the University of Chicago Press.
