HISTORICAL AND BIBLIOGRAPHICAL NOTE.
THE first Xosa Prayer Book was printed in April, 1865. The translation was the work of the late Archdeacon Woodrooffe and Mr. T. Liefeldt. It was issued in 24mo, a volume of xx (in later impressions) + 273 pp. This book ended with the Psalter. Of this edition 27 impressions were issued between 1870 and 1902, the total number of copies amounting to 53,850.
In 1906 a revised edition was printed: a book of xx + 463 pp. fcp. 8vo. This book contained, after the Psalter, the services for the Making of Deacons and the Ordination of Priests. The late Bishop Key, the late Rev. W. Philip, and the Rev. J. J. Xaba had a large share in preparing this edition; but the work was carried through its final stages and prepared for the press by Archdeacon Woodrooffe, assisted by the Rev. S. J. Wallis, S.S.J.E. Of this edition 7 impressions were issued up to November, 1915, making a total of 44,500 copies.
A re-revised edition was printed in September, 1916, in the same size.
This — the present — book (xxiv + 530pp.), known as the Complete
Edition, contains in addition the service for the Consecration of Bishops,
the Accession Services, and the Table of Affinity. The revision, which
did not extend to the Epistles and Gospels, and the Psalter, was made
by the Prayer Book Revision Committee of the Diocese of St.John's in
October, 1914, the Grahamstown Translations Committee being represented
by Canon Wyche and the Rev. D. Magas. The volume was prepared for the
press, at the request of the Bishop of St. John's, by Father Wallis.
September, 1916. (Complete
