What does this mean?

This is an English Book of Common Prayer which was established for the Church of England by the Monarchy in 1549 which set forth an Act for the Uniformity of Common Prayer, Service in the Church and the Administration of Sacraments. This outlined the only legal form of Church worship in England. There were Parliamentary and changes by the Monarch in ensuing years. Your volume is likely later 18th century based on the printing style, book cover and handwritten notations. The estimate is based on actual recent auction sales of comparables.
