NEW WORKS AND NEW EDITIONS,
4. A History of the Book of Common Prayer, together with a Rationale of the several Offices. By the Rev. FRANCIS PROCTER, M.A., Vicar of Witton, Norfolk, formerly Fellow of St. Catharine's College, Cambridge. Third Edition, revised and enlarged. Crown 8vo. cloth, 10s. 6d.
"MR. PROCTER'S "History of the Book of Common Prayer' is by far the best commentary extant . . . . Not only do the present illustrations embrace the whole range of original sources indicated by MR. PALMER, but MR. PROCTER compares the present Book of Common Prayer with the Scotch and American forms; and he frequently sets out in full the Sarum Offices. As a manual of extensive information, historical and ritual, imbued with sound Church principles, we are entirely satisfied with MR. PROCTER's important volume.”
CHRISTIAN REMEMBRANCER, April, 1855. "It is a résumé of all that has been done in the way of investigation in reference to the Prayer-Book."-ATHENEUM, Feb. 17, 1855. "We can have little doubt that MR. PROCTER'S History of our Liturgy will soon supersede the well-known work of WHEATLY, and become a much-used handbook beyond the circuits of the University for the more immediate use of which it has been produced."— NOTES AND QUERIES, March, 1855.
· Although very decidedly anti-Roman in its tone, we gladly accept it as a substitute for the dull and dreary dogmatism of WHEATLY. It presents, in a popular and agreeable narrative, the history of those variations to which so much attention has been directed during the late eventful controversies; and while it contains a very careful, learned and scholarlike exposition of these changes, it also furnishes a most valuable commentary on the successive texts of the formularies themselves, as they are exhibited either in the original editions, or in the useful manuals of BULLEY and KEELING."-DUBLIN REVIEW (Roman Catholic), April, 1855. "We can speak with just praise of this compendious but comprehensive volume. It appears to be compiled with great care and judgment, and has profited largely by the accumulated materials collected by the learning and research of the last fifty years. It is a manual of great value to the student of Ecclesiastical History and of almost equal interest to every admirer of the Liturgy and Services of the English Church."-LONDON QUARTERLY REVIEW, April, 1855.
"It is indeed a complete and fairly-written history of the Liturgy; and from the dispassionate way in which disputed points are touched on, will prove to many troubled consciences what ought to be known to them, viz. :—that they may, without fear of compromising the principles of evangelical truth, give their assent and consent to the contents of the Book of Common Prayer. MR. PROCTER has done a great service to the Church by this admirable digest."
