1688 Book of Common Prayer Charles Bill Church of England Psalms William & Mary

A truly rare late 17th-century Book of Common Prayer from the Church of England. Like many similar works, this book includes the Psalms of David, calendars, orders of prayers, tables and rules for devotion, and litanies and prayers. This 1688 edition, published by Charles Bill, is particularly notable as it, according to Lowndes, is “an addition in which William and Mary are prayed for”.
