The Book of Common Prayer is the old and well-loved prayer book of the Church of England, in use since the 16th century. In this revised 1662 form, it has become one of the classic texts of the English language, its prayers and expressions making English what it is today.
Cambridge's new editions of the Prayer Book have been freshly typeset for the 21st century, using a modern digital typeface to give a clear printing image and greater readability. Nevertheless the format and page layout of this book follow the previous Large-Print Edition Prayer Book page for page. The book provides the complete 1662 services - including the traditional forms of the baptism and marriage services.
This particular style comes in a burgundy hardcover and will be helpful for anyone needing slightly larger print for ease of reading.
