Written by the respected typographer Stanley Arthur Morison (1889-1967), English Prayer Books examines the history of the various liturgical books used in public worship in England, from their origins in apostolic times to the later stages of their development in the middle of the twentieth century. Using the books themselves as the first source of critical enquiry, Morison draws attention to the rich history of change underlying church liturgies and throws light on a subject too often neglected in the study of Christian sacred texts.
