This is an auction for THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER.

This is a Folio Society hardback, in its original slipcase.

A magnificent facsimile edition of a religious and literary classic. Next to the authorised version of the King James Bible and the plays of William Shakespeare, it is among the most widely read and influential of English literary works. Decorated throughout with woodcuts from designs of Albert Durer, Hans Holbein and others.

This is a particularly beautiful book.

From Wikipedia:

"The Book of Common Prayer is the short title of a number of related prayer books used in the Anglican Communion, as well as by the Continuing Anglican, "Anglican realignment" and other Anglican churches. The original book, published in 1549, in the reign of Edward VI, was a product of the English Reformation following the break with Rome. Prayer books, unlike books of prayers, contain the words of structured (or liturgical) services of worship. The work of 1549 was the first prayer book to include the complete forms of service for daily and Sunday worship in English. It contained Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, the Litany, and Holy Communion and also the occasional services in full: the orders for Baptism, Confirmation, Marriage, 'prayers to be said with the sick' and a Funeral service. It also set out in full the "propers" (that is the parts of the service which varied week by week or, at times, daily throughout the Church's Year): the Collect and the Epistle and Gospel readings for the Sunday Communion Service..."
