George:

I never heard of Fowler's

Modern English Usage by H. W. Fowler (1926) was the first and only edition by the author; a second edition, very sparingly revised, was edited by Ernest Gowers and was published in 1965. Fowler's Modern English Usage was a new book by the late R. W. Burchfield and published in 1995; it shouldn't strictly have been published as the 'third' edition of Fowler's Modern English Usage.

I think you can still get the 2nd edition.
