R. Shabbthai Sofer was commissioned by the Rabbis of the Council of Three Lands to publish an accurate edition of the Prayer-book, which he did with much reference to the now lost Siddur of Solomon Luria. It was partially published in 1617 in Prague and recently a complete edition was issued in three volumes in Jerusalem from the original manuscript which was in the library of Chief Rabbi Solomon Hirschel and subsequently in the Library of the London Beth Din (since sold).
