"These volumes set forth and analyze .... precedents of the House of Representatives. The early precedents of the House, dating from the First Congress, are found in Asher Hinds' monumental work, published in 1907."
Deschler was Parlimentarian of the House, 1928-1974.
Including References to Provisions of the Constitution, the Laws, and Decisions of the United States Senate. By Asher C. Hinds, LL.D,
Clerk at the Speaker's Table. Published by authority of the Act of Congress approved March 4, 1907.
"The value of precedents in guiding the action of a legislative body
has been demonstrated by the experience of the House of Representatives for too many years to justify any arguments in their favor now."
"A reference source for information on the rules and selected precedents governing the House procedure."
"The House Practice is a summary review of selected precedents and not an exhaustive survey of all applicable rulings. The House Rules and Manual and the published volumes of House precedents remain the primary sources for in-depth analysis and authoritative citations. As required by law, the House Practice is a concordance or quick reference guide to those works."
"The House Rules and Manual is published by the House Committee on Rules and contains the fundamental source material for parliamentary procedure used in the House of Representatives. It is published during the first session of each Congress."
