This edition of the Book of Common Prayer is dated 1638 and was printed by Thomas Buck and Roger Daniel from the University of Cambridge Press. This was penultimate edition before a revision was made law in 1662 by James I - and that version is still in use by the Church of England today. It was owned by the Church Warden at St Mary's Church in Hull, which is the oldest licensed church in Hull.
