Pages: 4, 43 p

Notes: A short preface is addressed to parliament. Further editions of what already appears to be a further edition already appeared in 1641 and then later again in 1661 (where he is called John Barnard) with an anatomy of the common prayer added. It is not clear whether Richard Bernard held such views upon episcopacy in 1641. This work may have been by John Bernard, a Presbyterian, author of The Independents catechisme. 1645. Cf. Emanuel Green, Bibliotheca Somersetensis. 1902. v. 2, p. 165.
