        Updike set the type at the Merrymount Press in Boston, and copies were printed by De Vinne (New York) in red and black on handmade paper. Illustrated by Robert Anning Bell within borders designed by Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue (who also designed the woodcut initials), the Altar Book was hailed on both sides of the Atlantic. Daniel Berkeley Updike (Febru – Decem ) was an American printer and historian of he joined the publishers Houghton, Mifflin & Company, of Boston as an errand worked for the firm's Riverside Press and trained as a printer but soon moved to typographic design. In he founded the Merrymount PressBorn: Febru , Providence, Rhode Island.

        The book was commissioned on Ma by Rev. Maurice W. Britton of St. Clement’s Church in New York City. (Merrymount Press job ticket no. ). But no activity seems to have occurred on it until the fall of when D.B. Updike asked W.A. Dwiggins to write out lines of music: lines on October 1, another eight lines on October 3. The Press's finest work is generally considered to be the Book of Common Prayer () financed by J. Pierpont Morgan. Without decoration, except a typographic leaf, initial letters, and rubrication, it was an austere and handsome quarto. Updike estimated that Merrymount Press produced s pieces of printing during its existence.

      The Book of Common Prayer, Standard Edition, printed for the Commission on the Revision of the Prayer Book of 8. A folio volume of pages, bound in full crimson pigskin, primed from a fount of XVII cemury, large, old-style type, in red and black, on English hand-made. At the start, Merrymount Press was dedicated to and defined by a single book. In summer during his last months at Houghton Mifflin’s Riverside Press, the Episcopal Church offered Berkeley Updike a free-lance commission to redesign the pages of its Book of Common Prayer. Updike collaborated on this task with the young architect Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue.
