comment Strunk and White vs “Style: The Basics of Clarity and Grace” by Williams and Colomb
@jae: Many libraries throughout the world participate in interlibrary loan programs that let them borrow books from other libraries for their patrons. I don't know how many small-town German libraries offer interlibrary loan, but the smaller their own collections, the more they can benefit from such a program.
