Everyman's History of the Prayer Book - by Percy Dearmer
Percy Dearmer (1867 - 1936) was a Christian socialist and probably best-known as the author of A Parson's Handbook, a popular guide to the ritual and conduct of Anglican liturgies. He was also chief editor of The English Hymnal, one of the major hymnals of the Church of England.
In this 250-page book he gives an accessible account of the history and content of the Book of Common Prayer, as it existed in 1912 when the book was written. One can see from this book that the author was deeply appreciative of the tradition and sources of the Book of Common Prayer, but in no way blind to its shortcomings, as he perceived them. He has strong opinions of the way development of the Book of Common Prayer should take (or should have taken), but, in most cases his opinions were vindicated by subsequent events.
An "American Edition" was also published, which differed primarily in the inclusion of an additional chapter on the American Prayer Book. We include this chapter (and the other changes and additions) here without changing or renumbering subsequent chapters, resulting in two Chapter 12's.
The entire book is presented here, along with the copious illustrations. Note that some of the chapters are fairly long and so may take a while to download RIGHT HERE.
