Default New Hart's Rules

I spotted this in this week's World Wide Words (http://www.worldwidewords.org)

NEW HART'S RULES Hart's Rules is a famous handbook, first produced
in 1893 by Horace Hart, the Printer to the University of Oxford, as
a guide for compositors and proofreaders at the University Press.
The most recent edition, the 39th, came out in 1983 and is still in
print. Despite the title, this book isn't those Hart's Rules in
anything but name, "Hart" now having become a brand, like "Fowler".
It is instead an adaptation and reduction to smaller physical size
of the Oxford Guide to Style, compiled by R M Ritter, which came
out as recently as 2002. Despite its confusing publishing history,
this is a useful little style guide, much more wide-ranging than
the current edition of the original Hart's Rules.

[New Hart's Rules; published by Oxford University Press; hardback,
pp417; ISBN 0198610416; list price GBP12.99.]
