Elements of Corrections

Oops! Corrections in today's New York Times on its article "'The Elements of Style' Turns 50": 

Because of an editing error, an article on Wednesday about a 50th-anniversary edition of the book “The Elements of Style” misspelled part of the publisher’s name. The publisher is Pearson/Longman, not Pierson/Longman.

The article also overlooked an element of style in The New York Times Manual of Style and Usage in referring to Roger Angell’s introduction for the fourth edition of the book. He wrote the foreword, not the “forward.” (As The Times stylebook notes, a “foreword” is the word before Chapter 1.)
