Copy-Editing: The Cambridge Handbook.
Butcher, Judith
This handbook is designed as a reference manual for copy editors who prepare typescript for printing. It deals with the following topics: the copy editor's function; the work to be done at each stage in the production process; some difficult points of spelling, capitalization, and other features collectively known as "house style"; the parts of a book, such as preliminary pages, headings, tables, notes, and indexes; complex material, such as bibliographical references, quotations, poetry, and plays; books with more than one author or in more than one volume; academic and specialized books; and the preparation of reprints and new editions.
