       Cannon's Precedents of the House of Representatives of the United States (March 1, 1921) (U.S. Government Printing Office)
    Published by authority of the Act of Congress approved March 1, 1921.
       Deschler's Precedents of the House of Representatives of the United States (U.S. Government Printing Office)
    "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.

       Hinds' Precedents of the House of Representatives of the United States (March 4, 1907) (U.S. Government Printing Office)
    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."

       House Practice, A Guide to the Rules, Precedents, and Procedures of the House (U.S. Government Printing Office)
    "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."

       House Rules and Manual (U.S. Government Printing Office)
    "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."

    Searchable and browseable. Previous editions, back to that for the 105th Congress, are also available.
