Elizabeth Tyrwhit's 1574 Morning and Euening Praiers is a collection of private prayers, a class of book that grew in both popularity and volume with the establishment of Protestantism in England from the mid-century on. These prayers first appeared in a tiny gilt girdle-book alongside the Litany, an incomplete copy of The Queen's Prayers by Katherine Parr and an incomplete copy of The Kalendar which are also reproduced in this facsimile edition.
