This was the 2nd book in England to be published by subscription, the 1st being John Minsheus Guide into Tongues, a dictionary in eleven languages, printed in 1617. For a work of this nature, it went through the press in the remarkably short space of 4 years. The exotic founts employed appear to have furnished by the 4 English type founders nominated under the Star Chamber decree. Thomas Roycroft - printer in London -> 1651-77.

- was also the printer of the handsome ed. of the classics published & edited by John Ogilby.

- his printing house was destroyed in the Fire of London.

- he became Master of the Stationers' Co. in 1675 & was allowed to assume the title "Orientalium Typographus Regius".

- died Aug. 10, 1677 & was buried in the church of St. Bartholomew the Great.

The chief editor Brian Walton (1600-1661) who was made bishop of Chester (1660-61) after the Restoration, began works on the project in 1647 after having studied Oriental languages at Oxford. Eventually many scholars collaborated on the project including John Lightfoot (1602-75) & James Ussher (1581-1656). Among the preforatory materials are charts on biblical weights & measures. descriptions of the 2nd temple & a "Sacred Chronology" which computes the dates of major historical & biblical events "ab orbe condito."

MSS-Psalter. Italy: ca. 1350 3 3/8 x 5"

Written in an Italian gothic hand on fine vellum, in Latin, c brown ink c headlines, paragraph marks + underlining in red. 34 lines. The 7 sign is uncrossed + the a is uniformly [?wycial?]

The main types of psalms in the Psalter are as follows: hymns, laments (the most frequent_ and thanksgivings.

Teh Psalter from the 9th to the 13th C. was the prayer book of the faithful. Gradually it acquired many of the elements which were to become components of the Book of [?Hours?]. Its readings in entirety, daily at first + then weekly. was a fundamental part of the Benedictine Rule that ultimately gave rise to the procedures of worship of the canonical Hours which became the basis of both communal + private devotions. It usually contained other hymns than the Psalms themselves, the songs from both the Old + New Testaments called the Canticles, as well as texts spoken in concert, like the Apostles' creed. All the 150 psalms were recited in the course of each week + most of them were said at the Hours of Matin + Vespers. Matins on Sunday began with Psalm 1, on Monday c Psalm 26 on Tuesday c Psalm 52 on Thursday c Psalm 68 on Friday c

Psalm 80 on Saturday c Psalm 97; the cycle for Vespers began on Sunday c Psalm 109 + continued throughout the week c the remaining Psalms.

The psalter ultimately became one of the most popular devotional books of the Middle Ages. Because of their religious significance, books containing the psalms, including Bibles, breviaries + books of hours, were frequently decorated lavishly.

Penitential Psalms 6 - Domine ne in furiore tuo 32 - Beati quorum remissae 38 - Domine he in furore tuo 51 - Miserere mei Deus 102- Domine exaudi 130 - De profundis 143 - Domine, exaudi
