Three Spendid Govdocs

In the process of searching the March batch of publications reported to the Lost Docs Blog against the Catalog of Government Publications (CGP), I came across the amusing factoid that there appear to be three and only three federal government documents with the word “splendid” in their title, at least according to the CGP:

  • Splendid vision, unswerving purpose : developing air power for the United States Air Force during the first century of powered flight. D 301.82/7:C 33
  • Tearing up the ground with splendid results : historic mining on the Coronado National Forest / 1995 Farrell, Mary M. A 13.101/2:15
  • The most splendid carpet / 1978 Anderson, Susan H. I 29.2:C 22

Hopefully soon, these three docs will be joined by a fourth which was reported to GPO in March 2010:

Three splendid little wars : the diary of Joseph K. Taussig, 1898-1901 D 208.210:16

Wouldn’t that be splendid? Anyone know of other words rarely used in govdoc titles? Do you think there are more or less than seven “magnificent” feddoc titles?
