Excerpt from The Annotated Book of Common Prayer: Being an Historical, Ritual, and Theological Commentary on the Devotional System of the Church of England
The Editor had, however, by the kind permission of Lord Cairns, been permitted to make use of the Manuscript to some extent; and he is now able to say that the Text of the Annotated Book of Common Prayer, as printed in the following pages, faithfully represents that of the Manuscript except in resmet to the conventional spelling and punctuation of the seventeenth century: and that where any important meaning depended on either spelling or punctuation they also have been faithfully reproduced.
Among the corrections of the Text which have been introduced into the present edition in consequence of this examination of the Manuscript, two are especially to be noticed; namely, the accurate reproduction of the Authorized Version of 1611 in the Gospels and Epistles; and of the Great Bible in the Psalms. For the Gospels and Epistles the Text of the Annotated Bible has been used, that Text being formed from a comparison of an Oxford Standard Text [minion, small 8vo, marg. Ref] with the Cam bridge Authorized Version edited by Dr. Scrivener. The Italics have been carefully inserted as they appear in the same Text; and interpolated words, such as J esus said, are distinguished from the actual Text by being printed within brackets. For the Psalms the Bible of 1539 has been used. The Italics of this (which are printed in Roman type in the original black-letter Bible) differ slightly here and there from those marked as such in the Manuscript of the Prayer Book but as the intention of the Revisers of 1661 was to reproduce accurately the Psalter as it appears in The Translation of the Great English Bible set forth and used in the time of King Henry the Eighth and Edward the Sixth, it has been thought best to take Cranmer's Bible, the Authorized Version of 1539, as the standard.
