Parker Society is the name of an English organization of churchmen started in 1841, for the purpose of a complete republication of the writings of the Reformation. We append a list of the works published and proposed to be published by the Parker Society:
In royal octavo — Becon, Cranmer, Jewell, Whitgift, Tindal, Frith, and Barnes; Bullinger's Decades; Alley, Whittaker. In demy octavo — Ridley, Pilkington, Philpot, Fulke, Nolwell, Coverdale, Parker, Bale, Rainolds, Sandys, Hutchinson, Grindal, Hooper, Latimer, Bradford, Fox, Taverner, and some others. Royal authors — Documents of the reign of Edw VI — Documents relative to the reign of queen Mary; Documents of the reign of queen Elizabeth; Zurich Letters (two series); Letters and Documents from archbishop Parker's MSS. in CC.C.C.; occasional Services of queen Elizabeth's reign; the Homilies; some volumes of Sermons preached before king Edward VI and queen Elizabeth at Paul's Cross, in the universities, and on various occasions; several volumes of Tracts and Small Pieces; various Letters and Documents; the Reformation legum Ecclesiasticarum; queen Elizabeth's Prayer-book; Devotional Poetry of the sixteenth cenutury; Christian Meditations and Prayers, and some other devotional manuals. It was calculated that the works above stated might be in about eighteen or twenty volumes royal octavo, and fifty volumes demy, and the whole might be completed in sixteen years from the commencement. A few pieces of peculiar interest would probably be printed as facsimiles, and these were to be the sizes of the originals.
