Full title:
Godly Prayers and Thanksgivings, for every elevation of Christian Society and the needs that each has, together with Evensong and Matins, taken from the Holy Scriptures and set apart for prayer on each day of the week.

Full title original language:
Gudheligha Bööner och Tacksäyelser, för alla Christenheetennes Ständer och åliggiande Nödher, sampt medh Affton och Morgonsignelse, Uthdraghne aff then helgha Schrifft och fördeelade på alla Daghar i Wekonne till att bedhia.

Abstract:
This book, printed in Rostock, bears the standard inscription found on most privilege books: 'Cum gratia et privilegio'. However, it appears that no letter of privilege was ever issued by the king of the time - Johan III. The inclusion of the standard inscription suggests that the idea of privilege had crystallised as a means of giving a publication intellectual or cultural significance and an important selling point. It may also have served as a means of circumventing legal action against the importation of books not printed in the country.
