THE BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER 1549-1999.
by Griffiths, David N.
First edition. This bibliography is the most comprehensive and scholarly work to have appeared in the 450 years since the first Protestant prayer book was published in 1549. Most of these editions were published in English, although there are about 1200 translations into some 200 languages and dialects. Each book is given a full bibliographical description with relevant notes on the circumstances of its publication. Editions of the American Episcopal Prayer Book and English prayer-book editions in American libraries are also described in detail. The information is made accessible by indexes of publishers, printers, translators, and promoters, and also of languages, scripts and short titles. There are 15 full-color illustrations in this work. The author, David N. Griffiths, spent 40 years of research towards compiling this book. Sales Rights:
