A Manual of Parliamentary Practice, Composed Originally for the Use of the Senate of the United States, Jefferson, Thomas
5 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 Very Good- 
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."

Under The Moons Of Mars A History and Anthology of the Scientific Romance in the Munsey Magazines, 1912-1920, Moskowitz, Sam (edited by)
7 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 Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
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."

"During the early 1900s, Albert Munsell has kept diaries of his development of Munsell color space. The reason he developed the Munsell Color System was to make the colors easy and convenient to teach children. Therefore, he believed that if children were properly taught, colors would be more meaningful and useful for them through life. He devoted his time to continue working on his Munsell color space. In 1917, Munsell Color Company was founded by Albert H. Munsell. He invested his time working on Munsell Color System. He has published a few books which were called A Color Notation (1905) , Altas of Munsell Color System (1915) and A Grammar of Color: Arrangements of Strathmore Papers in a Variety of Printed Color Combinations According to The Munsell Color System (1921). He was the first one to create the Munsell color system to separated three attributes: Hue, Value and Chroma to be perceptually uniform. And the data of Munsell color system was the most accurate measurement of human’s visual responses to color."

The Ellesmere Manuscript Of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, Schulz, Herbert C. (Curator Of Manuscripts)
10 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 Very Good+ 
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)."
