Capitalization — Book Titles

Capitalize the first word and all the principal words in titles of books and literary articles, documents, periodicals, and manuscripts, plays, and pictures, etc.

EX.— The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde; How the Other Half Lives; Senate Document No. 2; the Codex Aureus; Cycle of the Werewolf.

NOTE— The is not considered a part of the title, in the case of most periodicals. Do not capitalize a, an, and the, and prepositions and conjunctions unless they stand first.

Capitalize the article (a, an, or the) at the beginning of a name or title only when it forms an integral part of the name or title

EX.— The Hague; The Bronx; Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream; Kipling's An Habitation Enforced; Hawthorne's The House of the Seven Gables.

NOTE— It is not proper to capitalize the article (the, a, an) beginning the name of a newspaper or magazine.

EX.— the Springfield Republican; the Saturday Evening Post; the Chicago Tribune; the New York Times.
