As usual, leaves R7-8, which were suppressed, are not present; leaf 2h3 is in second ('blotted') of four settings noted by ESTC. There is no catchword on kk6v, and in this copy A4v, line 1, reads 'Do-'; C1r, last line, reads 'ye may'; D1r, line 2, ends 'Jerusalem'; and E3v, line 5, reads 'exam-' as per STC. The general title to THE PSALTER. is the state without the word 'Pointed.' This controversial edition of the Liturgy was overseen by Charles I and Archbishop Laud for use by the people of Scotland. The text was drafted by John Maxwell and James Wedderburn However, upon its first reading in churches in Scotland, the opposition was so strong that it was withdrawn from use shortly thereafter. The text eventually was influential in the compilation of the English revision of 1661-2, and served as a model for the American BCP of 1789 and its successors (BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER) First edition of the first Scottish Book of Common Prayer.
