"Prefaces, and passages, and excusations, and other speeches of reference to the person," writes Bacon, "are great wastes of time; and though they seem to proceed of modesty, they are bravery." We shall endeavour therefore to set forth the purpose and scope of our work in the briefest language.<br><br>We have been led to the present undertaking by a desire to attract more attention to the Latin Prayer Book of 1670, and we desired this for two reasons. Firstly, on account of the remarkable scarcity of the Book itself; even in many notable Libraries, including those of Trinity Coll., Camb., of Westminster Abbey, of Exeter, Ely, Carlisle, Bangor, and other cathedrals, of Chetham College, Manchester, and of Althorpe House, etc., we are informed that no copy is to be found. Secondly, because Durel's Liturgia shows what the Revisers understood to be meant by the words which they retained and the words which they inserted; it shows the thought of the time as expressed by a contemporary and an authorized exponent.
