 JEFFERSON, THOMAS, A Manual of Parliamentary Practice, Composed Originally for the Use of the Senate of the United States
JEFFERSON, THOMAS
A Manual of Parliamentary Practice, Composed Originally for the Use of the Senate of the United States
Philadelphia, PA: Hogan & Thompson, 1834. Early printing. Hardcover. This book is in Very Good- to Very Good condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The book covers have some light bumping and edge wear to the spine ends and corners. There are several spots of fraying to the spine ends and corners as well. There is a large spot of ink to the front cover of the book ( a real problem when inkwells were a regular feature of desks) , which has dripped over onto the inside edge of the rear cover and along the very top outside of the foredges of several text pages. The text pages are mostly clean and bright, though there are faint spots of foxing throughout. This copy includes the inkstamp of James A. Peden (possibly the James Peden who was Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary (Argentina) in 1854). Also included is the adhered bookplate of LeRoy V. Brant, the Music Director of the San Jose Symphonic Choir and Founder of the San Jose Municipal Chorus. There is another hand inked name on the title page which appears contemporary to the book - First name William. The last name is difficult to read. "...the Senate have accordingly formed some rules for its own government: but those going only to few cases, they have referred to the decision of their President, without debateand without appeal, all questions of order arising either under their own rules, or, where they have provided none." "Manual of Parliamentary Practice for the Use of the Senate of the United States, written by Thomas Jefferson in 1801, is the first American book on parliamentary procedure." "The Senate traditionally has not considered Jefferson's Manual of Parliamentary Practice to be its direct authority on parliamentary procedure. However, starting in 1828 the Senate began publishing a version of Jefferson's Manual for their use, removing the Senate Rules from within the text and placing them in a separate section. In 1888, when the Senate initiated publication of the Senate Manual, a copy of Jefferson's Manual was included in each biennial edition. This practice continued until 1977." (from Wikipedia).

MOSKOWITZ, SAM (EDITED BY)
Under the Moons of Mars a History and Anthology of the Scientific Romance in the Munsey Magazines, 1912-1920
New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1970. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. This book is in Near Fine condition and has a Very Good+ dust jacket. The book and its contents are in mostlyc lean, bright condition. The spine ends and corners of the book covers have some light rubbing and a couple of tiny nicks. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket has some light rubbing to the spines and a small semi-closed tear to the top front panel. The rear panel of the dust jacket has some sections of fading / sunning and several small spots of ground-in dirt. "Moskowitz later worked professionally in the science fiction field. He edited Science-Fiction Plus, a short-lived genre magazine owned by Hugo Gernsback, in 1953. He compiled about two dozen anthologies, and a few single-author collections, most published in the 1960s and early 1970s. Moskowitz also wrote a handful of short stories (three published in 1941, one in 1953, three in 1956). His most enduring work is likely to be his writing on the history of science fiction, in particular two collections of short author biographies, Explorers of the Infinite and Seekers of Tomorrow, as well as the highly regarded Under the Moons of Mars: A History and Anthology of “The Scientific Romance” in the Munsey Magazines, 1912-1920. His exhaustive cataloging of early sf magazine stories by important genre authors remains the best resource for nonspecialists." "Munsey's Weekly, later known as Munsey's Magazine, was a 36-page quarto American magazine founded by Frank A. Munsey in 1889 and edited by John Kendrick Bangs. It is credited with being the first mass-market magazine. Frank Munsey aimed to publish "a magazine of the people and for the people, with pictures and art and good cheer and human interest throughout". Soon after its inception, the magazine was selling 40,000 copies a week. In 1891, Munsey's Weekly adopted a monthly schedule and was renamed Munsey's Magazine.". Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket .

The Coast Artillery School Department of Enlisted Specialists Automotive Course: Automotive Fundamentals
Fort Monroe, VA: Coast Artillery School, N.D.. Paperback. c1930. Oversized paperback. This book has a cloth spine with regular paper printed covers. The book is in Good only condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The covers have edge tears, nicks and small chips, along with noticeable toning. The cloth spine has had water damaged and leached red ink onto the covers and edges of the text pages. This volume includes the outline of the course (schedule of instruction) for the Automotive Course and also the homework and test pages. This volume has been mostly filled out (mostly in pencil) by the former owner (a young man by the name of John McConnell). "The U. S. Army Coast Artillery Corps (CAC) was a corps level organization responsible for coastal, harbor, and anti-aircraft defense of the United States between 1901 and 1950. The CAC also operated heavy and railway artillery during World War I...The rapidity of technological advances and changing techniques increasingly separated coastal defenses (heavy) from field artillery (light). Officers were rarely qualified to command both, requiring specialization. As a result, in 1907, Congress split the Field Artillery Branch (United States) , and Coast Artillery into separate branches, creating a separate Coast Artillery Corps (CAC) , and authorized an increase in the Coast Artillery Corps to 170 numbered companies. National Guard coast artillery units were also formed by the states to attempt to bring the CAC up to strength in wartime. In 1907 the United States Army Field Artillery School at Fort Monroe became the Coast Artillery School, which operated until 1946, and in 1908, the Chief of Artillery became the Chief of Coast Artillery in the rank of Major General.".

 PHONOGRAPHIC INSTITUTE, BENN PITMAN AND JEROME B. HOWARD, The Book of Psalms Printed in the Easy Reporting Style in Accordance with the Manual of Phonography
PHONOGRAPHIC INSTITUTE, BENN PITMAN AND JEROME B. HOWARD
The Book of Psalms Printed in the Easy Reporting Style in Accordance with the Manual of Phonography
Cincinnati, OH: Phonographic Institute, 1888. Trade Edition. Hardcover. The text is written entirely in SHORTHAND. This book is in Very Good condition and is lacking a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in generally clean, bright condition. There is some light bumping and rubbing to the spine ends and corners of the book covers. The text pages are clean , but noticeably toned throughout. This book contains the text of the Book of Psalms written entirely in the Pitman phonographic script. "Pitman shorthand is a system of shorthand for the English language developed by Englishman Sir Isaac Pitman (1813–1897) , who first presented it in 1837. Like most systems of shorthand, it is a phonetic system; the symbols do not represent letters, but rather sounds, and words are, for the most part, written as they are spoken. As of 1996, Pitman shorthand was the most popular shorthand system used in the United Kingdom and the second most popular in the United States. One characteristic feature of Pitman shorthand is that unvoiced and voiced pairs of sounds (such as /p/ and /b/ or /t/ and /d/) are represented by strokes which differ only in thickness; the thin stroke representing "light" sounds such as /p/ and /t/; the thick stroke representing "heavy" sounds such as /b/ and /d/. Doing this requires a writing instrument responsive to the user's drawing pressure: specialist fountain pens (with fine, flexible nibs) were originally used, but pencils are now more commonly used.

"Benjamin Pitman (July 24, 1822 – December 28, 1910) , also known as Benn Pitman, was an English-born author and popularizer in the United States of Pitman shorthand, a form of what was then called phonography (shorthand). He was also active in the arts and crafts " "At Isaac's request, Benn, Jane and their two children went to the United States in January 1853 so Benn could instruct people in the United States on his brother's system. After brief stays in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Canton, Ohio, they settled at Cincinnati, Ohio, where Benn founded the Phonographic Institute, of which he was long the president. He at first published his brother's shorthand textbooks, giving him credit for the system; but in 1857, when Isaac and his co-laborers made certain changes in the system, he refused to adopt them. Benn felt the original system was better, and the original system became the one which was adopted in the United States. In 1855, Pitman invented the electrochemical process of relief engraving."

 SCHULZ, HERBERT C. (CURATOR OF MANUSCRIPTS), The Ellesmere Manuscript of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales
SCHULZ, HERBERT C. (CURATOR OF MANUSCRIPTS)
The Ellesmere Manuscript of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales
San Marino, CA: Huntington Library, 1966. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Booklet. Color Illustrations; This is a trade sized booklet with heavy cardstock covers and a stapled spine. The booklet is in Very Good+ condition and was issued without a dust jacket. There is some beginning edge wear and bumping to the spine ends and corners of the covers. The text pages are clean and bright. "The Ellesmere Chaucer, or Ellesmere Manuscript of the Canterbury Tales, is an early 15th-century illuminated manuscript of Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, owned by the Huntington Library, in San Marino, California (EL 26 C 9). It is considered one of the most significant copies of the Tales. Written most likely in the first or second decade of the fifteenth century, the early history of the manuscript is uncertain, but it seems to have been owned by John de Vere, 12th Earl of Oxford (1408–1462). The manuscript takes its popular name from the fact that it later belonged to Sir Thomas Egerton (1540–1617) , Baron Ellesmere and Viscount Brackley, who apparently obtained it from Roger North, 2nd Baron North (1530/31-1600). [1] The library of manuscripts, known as the Bridgewater Library, remained at the Egerton house, Ashridge, Hertfordshire, until 1802 when it was removed to London. Francis Egerton, created Earl of Ellesmere in 1846, inherited the library, and it remained in the family until its sale to Henry Huntington by John Francis Granville Scrope Egerton (1872–1944) , 4th Earl of Ellesmere. Huntington purchased the Bridgewater library privately in 1917 through Sotheby's. The manuscript is now in the collection of the Huntington Library in San Marino, California (EL 26 C 9).".
