The Holy Bible containing the Old and New Testaments

The cover of the Bible is embossed with a wreath which says "British and Foreign Bible Society." It was used as part of St. Peter's Boys School. An inscription on the front end page reads "St. Peter's Boys School No. 21" and several handwritten names are also shown, including William G. Hogg, Jasper [Ings?], and other illegible notes. On the inside front page is: "Appointed to be read in churches." "Cum privilegio."

The Book of Common Praise

This book appears to be a draft of the Book of Common Praise hymn book being developed by the Hymnal Compilation Committee for use in the Church of England in Canada. It is understood that Reverend Canon James Simpson was a member of the committee, but his name does not appear on the list of committee members on p. v. of the publication. His signature appears at the top of the title page.

Exposition of the Creed. By John Lord Bishop of Chester

The title page is stamped "Library of Dr. Bray's Associates".

According to various sources, Dr. Thomas Bray (1656-1730) was an English reverend who created a system of parochial libraries in many of the thirteen American colonies. He was educated at All Souls' College of Oxford, where he received his bachelor's degree in 1678; he later received a doctorate in divinity at Oxford. Bray was ordained to the Church of England and later chosen to travel to the Province of Maryland to serve as Commissary (representative of the Church). He devoted himself to establishing parochial libraries in the colonies.

This stamp suggests the book was circulated as part of Dr. Bray's library system. How it came into the collection of St. Peter's Cathedral Church is unknown.
