William Muss-Arnolt discusses the history of this translation in Chapter LIV of The Book of Common Prayer among the Nations of the World (1914). David Griffiths identifies it as No. 127:3 in The Bibliography of the Book of Common Prayer 1549-1999 (London: The British Library; New Castle, Delaware: Oak Knoll Press, 2002). Titus Presler includes an account of this translation in his chapter entitled "Central African Prayer Books" in The Oxford Guide to the Book of Common Prayer: A Worldwide Survey, edited by Charles C. Hefling and Cynthia L. Shattuck (New York: Oxford University Press, 2006, p. 310).
The primary translators of this volume were William Percival Johnson (1854-11 October 1928) and Arthur George Barnard Glossop, O.B.E (1867-26 November 1949). Both were affiliated with the Universities' Mission to Central Africa.
William Percival Johnson arrived in Africa in 1876 and was ordained deacon at Masasi; following his ordination to the priesthood in September 1878 at Zanzibar, he began missionary work in late 1886 on Likoma Island. He served Archdeacon of Nyasa from 1896-1928. In addition to his work as a translator, Johnson was the author of Nyasa, the Great Water, being a Description of the Lake and the Life of the People (Oxford University Press, 1922) and My African Reminiscences, 1875-1895 (London: Universities Mission to Central Africa, 1925).
Arthur George Barnard Glossop arrived in Africa in 1893 after taking his MA at Trinity College, Oxford and studying for ordination at Wells Theological College. Glossop was Archdeacon of Likoma from 1912 to 1949, serving as principal of St. Andrew's College, Nkwazi, Likoma beginning in1922 and preparing the majority of a Chinyanja translation of the New Testament. He had an unusual dual role in the Nyasaland Protectorate as missionary and colonial government official, serving as Principal Headman of Likoma and Chizumulu from 1920 to 1937. Glossop received the OBE on King George V's Birthday Honours List in 1931; he died on Likoma Island in 1949.
The text of the liturgy is highly unusual for its inclusion of State Prayers for Edward VII, Manuel II of Portugal, and Kaiser Wilhelm II; all were European monarchs ruling over East African territory in 1909 where Chinyanja was spoken.
Additional Collects, Epistles and Gospels for Use in the Diocese of Nyasaland (1912) and Liturgical Propers, Chinyanja (1926) were supplemental materials published subsequently for use with this book. It has been followed by new translations in 1927, 1942, 1955, 1964, 1971 and 1976.
