Some of you may find this interesting. Feel free to comment, but remember this is a history only blog. We do not discuss anything but history.
Rough draft - partial to Preface Separate Identity vol. 2
I am enjoying this look into the past. It will, however, take me some time to peruse. One small thing:
For the last three quarters of a century the approach to so called “American Originals” has been based on a flawed, often superficial . . . (para. 3)
edited: so-called American Originals (The use of so-called [hyphenated] obviates the need for quotation marks surrounding the item modified.)
(I have further observations re: punctuation, if desired.)
As I said, it's a very rough draft. But certainly, your observations are welcome. You can leave them here or as a comment on the blog post.
