Despite occasional soiling, a generally cleaner and crisper copy than is often found - with generous margins, leaves measuring 277mm tall. Drafted by the Bishops of Ross and Dunblane, John Maxwell (d. 1639) and James Wedderburn (1585-1639), the Scottish Book of Common prayer was largely based upon the rite first issued in 1549 during the reign of King Edward VI. Introduced to an unaccepting Scottish population on 23rd July 1637 by Archbishop Laud at the behest of King Charles I, it attempted to replace John Knox's Calvinist Book of Common Order and proved the greatest symbol of the unpopular standardisation of Anglican Protestantism throughout the British Isles .The text was one of several triggers of the Covenant movement and the first stages of the War of Three Kingdoms, itself a precursor to the English Civil War. Despite its unpopularity, this historic text influenced the 1662 revision of the English Liturgy, the 1789 American Book of Common Prayer and the Scottish Episcopalian Liturgy of 1929. Several variants of this edition were published: this copy without 'pointed' to the title page of Psalter, without catchword to kk6. This copy is bound, as often but not as always, with an attractive folio edition of the Psalms translated by King James VI and I. Griffith 1637/9. STC 16607 Folio. Bookseller Inventory #
