Published by the Parliamentarian of the House of Representatives.  Contains the parliamentary precedents of the United States House of Representatives.

The compilation of the parliamentary precedents of the House is as important as any other function of the Office of the Parliamentarian. For each procedural decision made on the floor of the House, the Parliamentarian extracts the proceedings from the daily Congressional Record and writes a parliamentary syllabus. These “headnotes” must be precise, stating the real substance of the decision and its legal rationale in suitably narrow terms. To bridge the span between a digest of decisions and formally published precedents, the Parliamentarian publishes House Practice: A Guide to the Rules, Precedents and Procedures of the House, a condensed compilation of procedures of current application.
