Hitherto the cheapest edition of this well-known work has been issued at Three Shillings, a price which, it has been stated, is prohibitive to many who would otherwise wish to possess a copy.
In response, therefore, to the frequently expressed suggestion of many of the Clergy, both at home and abroad, and with a view to render the work more extensively useful among a wider circle of readers, more particularly the poorer members of the Church, it has been decided to issue a cheap popular edition at so reasonable a price as will bring it within the means of every one to obtain it.
