The 1928 Book of Common Prayer is beloved by Anglican traditionalists throughout the United States. Unlike the 1979 book that was adopted by the Episcopal Church, the 1928 BCP stands in direct line of descent from Thomas Cranmer's 1549 Book of Common Prayer, and as such, its collects preserve the beauty Archbishop's original prose. The Epistles and Gospels are taken from the Authorized Version (otherwise known as the King James Bible) and the Psalter remains that which has been used by generations of Anglicans throughout the world, that of the Great Bible of 1539.
The BCP comes bound in black genuine leather and comes bound with a colored ribbon for use as a bookmark. A page for dedications is included at the front.
