I'm not  ... but the grouping seems good ... a couple recent ones, plus some classics. The publishing dates seem odd.

Are these for historical interest?  $30 to start.  Hm.

Some publication dates are curious.  For example, the apparently recent The Chicago Manuel of Style, 1st Edition in 2009?  Should that be 1906?

Etc.

As I understand it, these volumes are needed when writing a paper usung the classical commentaries.  Professors check for time-appropriate style, grammar, and a jaunty confidence for the arrival of modernity.

The Chicago manual of style is in its 16th edition now. What is the value of using the first edition as reference? This applies to the other outdated volumes in the collection.

I am of the opinion that getting style guides from a period of time will assist with those resources from that period.
