Chicago Manual of Style
What would become The Chicago Manual of Style began in the 1890s
as a single sheet of typographic fundamentals, prepared by a proofreader
at the University of Chicago Press as a guide for the University
community. That sheet grew into a pamphlet, and the pamphlet grew
into a book—the first edition of the Manual of Style, published
in 1906. Nearly a century later the Manual is in use in homes and
offices around the world.
