Publishers Description The Book of Common Prayer is the old and well-loved prayer book of the Anglican Church, 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 follow the previous version of the Standard Edition Prayer Book page for page. The book provides the complete 1662 services, including the traditional forms of the baptism and marriage services. It comes in a burgundy imitation leather binding, in a gift slipcase. It will make an appropriate and useful gift for a wedding, christening or other special occasion.
