Erskine May's Treatise on the law, privileges, proceedings, and usage of Parliament by Thomas Erskine May( Book )

303 editions published between 1841 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 4,624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Erskine May', like 'Hansard', is a book recognised by its author's name much more readily than by its title; and, also like Hansard, it is closely connected to the work of the British Houses of Parliament. Thomas Erskine May (1815–86), clerk to the House of Commons, began his working life as assistant to the House of Commons librarian, and familiarised himself with constitutional history and parliamentary procedure during a long and distinguished career. This 1844 book describes the workings of Parliament, including its constitution, powers and privileges, practice and proceedings, and private bills. The history and traditions of the institution are examined, and current practice explained in detail. It went into several subsequent editions, and was translated into many languages. Erskine May was also a cautious but efficient reformer, streamlining procedures in order to manage much greater amounts of parliamentary business: his work is still consulted on procedural matters

The 8th of February 2015 marked the 200th anniversary of Thomas Erskine May's birth, the most famous holder of the office of the Clerk of the House of Commons. This volume celebrates that event. Bringing together current Clerks in the House of Commons and outside experts, the authors analyse May's profound contribution to the shaping of the modern House of Commons as it made the transition in his lifetime from the pre-Reform Act House to the modern core of the UK's constitutional democracy, symbolised perhaps from its enforced transition between 1834 and 1851 from a mediaeval slum to the World Heritage Palace of Westminster which is the most iconic building in the UK. It constitutes the first sustained analysis of the development of parliamentary procedure in over half a century, attempting to situate the reforms in the way the central institution of our democracy conducts itself in the political contexts which drove those changes
