Roberts Rules of Order Revised 4th Edition Copyright 1915.
This unique vintage book, written by General Henry M. Robert has become a classic handbook for the parliamentary rules of order for holding meetings used by almost all meetings of American deliberative societies such as a Board of Directors, School Board, etc. It’s a small, pocket-size 4th Edition, Copyright 1915 and was originally written in 1876. In this book Mr. Robert brought the rules of the American Congress to the public and, from what I have read, it sold half a million copies before this 1915 revision. Near the back of the book is a “Plan for Study of Parliamentary Law” with “Lesson Outlines” included.
Book is in good condition for its 103 years of age with bumped corners, wear on its spine and somewhat loose binding. It includes 323 slightly age-yellowed pages; I found no writing in the book except the previous owner’s name is hand written on the inside leaf.
Measures 6-inches long by 4-inches wide and is ¾-inch thick.
Additional Information Quoted from the Internet: “Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised, commonly referred to as Robert’s Rules of Order, RONR, or simply Robert’s Rules, is the most widely used manual of parliamentary procedure in the United States. It governs the meetings of a diverse range of organizations—including church groups, county commissions, homeowners associations, nonprofit associations, professional societies, school boards, and trade unions—that have adopted it as their parliamentary authority.
The manual was first published in 1876 by U.S. Army officer Henry Martyn Robert, who adapted the rules and practice of Congress to the needs of non-legislative societies. Ten subsequent editions have been published, including major revisions in 1915 and 1970. The copyright to Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised is owned by the Robert's Rules Association, which selects by contract an authorship team to continue the task of revising and updating the book. The 11th and current edition was published in 2011.”
