Notes on the digital edition
The text of this Chinese translation of the American Book of Common Prayer is presented here as page images saved in Portable Document Format. The Psalter has been omitted. This edition is not included in David N. Griffiths's Bibliography of the Book of Common Prayer 1549-1999; earlier Prayer Book translations into Chinese are discussed in William Muss-Arnolt's Book of Common Prayer among the Nations of the World, Chapter XL.
The Preface—dated June, 1932—is signed by Logan Herbert Roots (吳德施, 1870-1945, II Bishop of Hankow), Frederick Rogers Graves (郭斐蔚, 1858-1940, V Bishop of Shanghai), and Daniel Trumbull Huntington (韓仁敦, 1868-1934, I Bishop of Wuhu).
Helen Gordon, Cynthia McFarland and Brian Reid provided technical support for the digitization process. Thomas N. Rae provided a copy of the book, which belonged originally to American medical missionary William Winston Pettus (1912-1945).
