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."

The American Spelling Book Containing the Rudiments of the English Language for the Use of Schools in the United States, Webster, Noah (Esquire)
8 Webster, Noah (Esquire) The American Spelling Book Containing the Rudiments of the English Language for the Use of Schools in the United States
Boston, MA West & Richardson 1816 Revised Edition Hardcover Good 
This copy includes the bookplate of LeRoy V. Brant - a well-known San Jose musician and composer. The book is in Good only condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The rear covers have large chips of wood missing from the corners. The blue paper covers have chipped or rubbed off in sections. The text pages are in mostly solid, clean condition. There is a previous owner's inked name and date (1827) on the front endpaper. "The speller was originally titled The First Part of the Grammatical Institute of the English Language. Over the course of 385 editions in his lifetime, the title was changed in 1786 to The American Spelling Book, and again in 1829 to The Elementary Spelling Book. Most people called it the "Blue-Backed Speller" because of its blue cover, and for the next one hundred years, Webster's book taught children how to read, spell, and pronounce words. It was the most popular American book of its time; by 1837 it had sold 15 million copies, and some 60 million by 1890—reaching the majority of young students in the nation's first century. Its royalty of a half-cent per copy was enough to sustain Webster in his other endeavors. It also helped create the popular contests known as spelling bees."
