The lections are a photographic reproduction of "The English Office," somewhat enlarged. The BCP font is large but that of the lections much smaller, though obviously not as tiny as in The English Office. It's about the size of the font in an average personal bible, and as large as could be expected in a book that can be held in the hands. The photographic reproduction is quite clear, probably owing to the incredible clarity of the original. The binding is hardback but the boards are covered with paper rather than cloth. The paper is thicker than standard bible paper, with good whiteness and opacity. The overall effect is that of a good quality textbook.
Most people who buy this book will use it for saying the divine office and it is excellent for the purpose. The lections are printed in paragraph form according to the 1922 calendar, following the liturgical year rather than the calendar year as in the 1662 Prayer Book. Enthusiasts for 1662 will find the complete texts of all services: 1928 adds supplementary material, especially for "missing" feasts - Corpus Christi will be found masquerading as Thanksgiving for the Institution of Holy Communion - but these are optional. This book is probably the best resource for anyone wishing to say the 1662 office from a single book if they like, or do not mind, the revised calendar. It would fit in a briefcase but anyone requiring a pocketable book should try to find a secondhand copy of The English Office. The Cambridge BCP/KJV combo looks good but lacks the apocrypha required for some lections.
This is a much needed reprint of the best prayer book in English. It is actually quite close to the Catholic Book of Divine Worship but contains within it all the official prayers of the C of E. One cannot help wondering how far ecumenism was set back when was rejected by parliament in 1928.
A little bit on the large side to be carried as hand luggage but excellent for use in church or at home.
To have all the basic resources in one place and with the daily reading for the Office makes it good to use.
