A MANUAL OF PARLIAMENTARY PRACTICE, FOR THE USE OF THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES...TO WHICH IS ADDED, THE RULES AND ORDERS OF THE SENATE AND HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES, AND JOINT RULES OF THE TWO HOUSES
Washington City, 1820. 16mo. Contemporary three-quarter roan and marbled boards. Extremities worn, front board nearly detached but cords sound, one signature starting, foxing, some minor dampstaining. A sound copy. The fourth edition listed in Sabin, after the first edition of 1801. This copy is signed in pencil on the titlepage: "L[aFayette] S[abine] Foster's Washington Jany. 15 1831." Foster was a member of the Connecticut State Assembly for many years, and a member of the U.S. Senate from 1855 to 1867. After the death of President Lincoln, he became president pro-tem, and was presiding officer from April 5, 1865 to March 2, 1867. As a conservative republican, he was against repealing the Fugitive Slave Act, the Missouri Compromise, and the Lecompton constitution for Kansas. From 1878 to 1879 he served as a commissioner from Connecticut to settle the Connecticut-New York boundary dispute and buy Fisher's Island. Jefferson's MANUAL... was published shortly after he took office as President. The Virginia polymath sets forth rules of order and procedure - probably more dictating to the legislature than would be tolerated these days. SABIN 35887. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 1789.
