English and Dakota Service Book from the Book of Common Prayer, Authorized for Use in the Niobrara Deanery District of South Dakota
Philadelphia: Bishop White Prayer Book Society, 1918. First Edition. 16mo, 519 pp, with English and Dakota text on facing pages. Near fine copy in original black cloth, with bookplate of Episcopal minister Donald Henning on front pastedown. The first English and Dakota service book was translated by a committee appointed by William H. Hare, missionary bishop of Niobrara, in the 1870s and was reissued several times over the following decades. This is an entirely new translation, containing much additional material and commissioned by South Dakota Bishop Hugh Burleson with the stated intention of "making the language more intelligible to the people, which we trust will aid them in more intelligent worship of Almighty God."
