The Book of Common Prayer is the old and well-loved prayer book of the Church of England, in use since the 16th century. It has also become one of the classic English texts, its prayers and expressions helping to mould the English language into 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 earlier Large-Print Edition Prayer Book page for page. It provides the complete 1662 services - including the traditional forms of the baptism and marriage services.
The prayer book comes in a burgundy imitation leather hardback binding and will be helpful for anyone needing slightly larger print for ease of reading.
