Superbly tight and pristine copy of this massive compilation of legislative measures. Heavy blue sheets with 28 heavy gauge black thumb tabs divide it into different reports and such, each titled in gilt: "REPORT 96-831," "PUBLIC LAW 96-100," "CAPABILITIES OF THE U.S. TO MONITOR THE SALT II TREATY," "INTELLIGENCE IDENTITIES PROTECTION LEGISLATION," "NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE ACT OF 1980," etc. From the collection of Adlai E. Stevenson III (1930-2021), U.S. Senator from Illinois (1969-81), who at this time chaired the Senate Ethics Committee which in 1979 officially censured Georgia senator Herman E. Talmadge for financial irregularities -- report of which may well be contained within this volume. "Senator Adlai E. Stevenson" giltstamped along bottom spine against green background. Nicely bound and rather uncommon, not published for public distribution -- a fascinating, meaty dive into the details and minutiae of Senate activities.
