Boonville, NY (July 2010) – Blessed Be God, America’s favorite traditional prayer book has just been reprinted by Preserving Christian Publications (www.pcpbooks.com).

Blessed Be God can be purchased online at: http://pcpbooks.com/blessed_be_god.htm.

This classic prayer book is packed with prayers and devotions cherished by generations of American Catholics!

Along with traditional morning and evening prayers, litanies, novenas, Stations of the Cross, prayers for the sick and dying, etcetera, included are devotions for Holy Days, Special Feasts, Holy Week, Paschaltide, Ember Days, Rogation Days, Days of the Week, Seasons of the Year, Months of the Year, and more!

For Eucharistic devotion, an entire collection of prayers exists including a Holy Hour and the famous Forty Hours’ Adoration once practiced in every parish church!

This compact, pocket-size prayer book also includes for the traditional Tridentine Latin Rite the Ordinary texts of the Mass (in Latin and English), Sunday Epistles and Gospels (English only), Propers for the Requiem and Nuptial Mass (in Latin and English), Sunday Vespers, the other sacramental rites such as Baptism and Extreme Unction (in English), and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

Peppered throughout with symbolic lithographs, the reprinted prayer book’s high-quality scans are identical to original printing. An updated Table of Movable Feasts (good till 2041) and the addition of the St. Joseph clause to Roman Canon were added to conform it with the traditional (1962) Roman Missal (Missale Romanum).

PCP has reprinted the Blessed Be God according to its original 1960 manufacturing specifications and includes such high-quality features as a bonded-leather cover with rounded corners, gilded page edges, bible-text paper, a marking ribbon, and more!

Preserving Christian Publications (www.pcpbooks.com) has been living up to its name since 1983, and has a large selection of rare and hard-to-find secondhand Catholic books, as well as many once out-of-print titles that have recently been restored to the public purview including some for the traditional Roman Mass.
Thank you for posting that info.  It has helped me.  :)

It depends on what you mean by "antique".
I personally like very much The Raccolta, 1958 (Loreto Publications) and the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 1904 (St. Bonaventure Publications).

Yep, those count.  Thank you. 
In answer to some questions about PCP and the Blessed Be God prayer book:

-PCP was established in 1983, first dealing with the preservation of secondhand Catholic books which were being disposed of by Catholic institutions that had been hijacked by the liberals.  In fact, the owner was even making "dumpster dives" in the early years to save the books the liberals had throw away in the hundreds!  Later in the 1990's, PCP began to actually reprint some of the books it had saved, particularly some devoted to the traditional Roman Mass.  (see more here on the website:  http://pcpbooks.com/about_us.htm).  When the motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum was published in 2007, PCP already had a fine selection of Latin Mass titles ready to assist the clergy and laity with its implementation in parishes.

-PCP reprinted Blessed Be God as a hardcover edition a few years ago; it was an inflexible and bulky brick (that lacked several other features) compared to the original, flexible and compact (pocket size) edition.  So when we sold out of the older version, we decided to reprint the BBG per its original specifications, that is easy to carry and use and looks great to boot!
Beats Loome Books, unless one is a collector with cash to spare:
