The Book of Common Prayerby Church of England
The Book of Common Prayer and Administration of the Sacraments and Other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church According to the Use of the Church of England Together with the Psalter or Psalms of David Pointed as They are to be Sung or Said in Churches and the Form or Manner of Making Ordaining and Consecrating of Bishops Priests and Deacons and the Scottish Liturgy and the Permissible Additions to and Deviations from the Service Books of the Scottish Church as Canonically Sanctioned.
Of such Ceremonies as be used in the Church, and have had their beginning by the institution of man, some at the first were of godly intent and purpose devised, and yet at length turned to vanity and superstition: some entered into the Church by undiscreet devotion, and such a zeal as was without knowledge; and for because they were winked at in the beginning, they grew daily to more and more abuses, which not only for their unprofitableness, but also because they have much blinded the people, and obscured the glory of God, are worthy to be cut away, and clean rejected.

I have several BCP ebooks and .pdf files of varying quality. This one is nice to look at and has an interactive table of contents. What more could you want? IMHO,every thinking Anglican needs a copy of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer for devotional and historical reasons. You might as well get this one for your e reader, smart phone, tablet or PC. As most of you probably know, some CofE churches use this 1662 BCP in their services. It is still approved for use in English churches.
