This series of high quality elemental abundance analyses of mostly Main Sequence normal and peculiar B, A, and F stars defines their properties and provides data for the comparison with analyses of somewhat similar stars and with theoretical predictions. Most use high dispersion and high S/N (>= 200) spectrograms obtained with CCD detectors at the long camera of the 1.22-m Dominion Astrophysical Observatory telescope's coude spectrograph. Here we expand the range of stars examined to include two relatively quiescent F supergiants. nu Her (F2 II) and 41 Cyg (F5 Ib-II) are analyzed as consistently as possible with previous studies. These LTE fine analyses use the ATLAS9 and the WIDTH9 programs of R. L. Kurucz. High signal-to-noise spectrograms and high quality atomic data were employed. The derived values of these photometrically constant stars are somewhat different with the abundances of v Her being somewhat metal-poor and those of 41 Cyg being crudely solar-like. Our analyses indicate that the basic results of Luck & Wepfer (1995) who also studied nu Her and 41 Cyg are not likely to be significantly changed by new studies of all their stars.
