Note:

This text is most likely the 1604 edition of The Book of Common Prayer for the Church of England, which was created after the death of Elizabeth I of England in 1603. The first page of the text relates to the reader how this book came to be published by the crown of England. The text contains chapters on morning prayer, evening prayers, the order of feast days, and a calendar dictating what readings ought to be used each day. This text was most likely inserted into the Bible at a later date due to the difference in the date of publication of these two texts.

The Archibald Howard Collection.
