This bibliography is the most comprehensive and scholarly work to have appeared in the 450 years since the 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 relavant 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. Co-published with The British Library.
