“I cannot live without books.”

― Thomas Jefferson

 

Rare 1864 Civil War-era printing of a famous manual on governmental procedure.

 

In 1801, Thomas Jefferson composed the very first American book on parliamentary procedure – ‘A Manual of Parliamentary Procedure.’ This book was designed to be used in the American Senate. While serving as Vice President, Jefferson wrote this book based on notes he took while studying procedure at College of William and Mary. The ‘Manual’ discusses various congressional rules and regulations including rules to Presidential and Congressional Impeachment.

 

Many of the rules included are based on the practices used in the British Parliament. According to Bergh’s “Writings of Thomas Jefferson,”

“As the Procedure of the House of Representatives is still conducted under the principles of the ‘Manual’ which do not conflict with the rules adopted by the House under the authority of the Constitution. Jefferson’s ‘Manual’ is being constantly reprinted.”
