Here are 4 nominations for your list of 10 essential:

1) Chicago Manual of Style, either 14th or 15th edition
(I have/own the 14th) (About $55.00, retail)

2) The Gregg Reference Manual, either 9th or 10th edition
(I have/own the 9th) (About $40.00, retail)

3) Technical Editing, The Practical Guide for Editors and Writers,
by Judith A. Tarutz, Perseus Books, Cambridge, Mass
(I have/own the 1992 version, Not sure if there is a more recent edition)

4) US Government Printing Office Style Guide.
BTW, if you want to take the time you can download it for free.
Otherwise, there is a charge for it.

Plus, you can always go back and get the updates when they are announced.

I know that there are others, but these have helped me when I have worked
with contracting firms on contracts with the Federal Government, over the past
112-15 years

Glad to participate in your project.

Hope these contribute to your list.
