This is immensely appealing to me. Some of this still goes on today, either manually like this or electronically, but not nearly enough. We are inundated with blather. I'm not saying every tweet, email, and blog post should be vetted by a hierarchy of editors and proofreaders, but even would-be authoritative publications seem more haphazard. Partly it's the economics of journalism and publishing these days, partly it's cultural. John McPhee has an interesting piece in a recent NYer that includes reflections on the NYer's "grammarian" Miss Gould, who was much more than a mere grammar cop. But the care in expression described makes me feel safe somehow--all is not lost.
