Description


This is an exceptionally beautiful Bible. This Bible has been the most influential of all English books upon the English language. England’s Lord Macaulay perhaps said it best:

“The King James Bible is a book which, if everything else in our language should perish, would alone suffice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power.”

This 1611 King James Bible is a “She” Bible. The following preliminaries are present and original: The Dedication, From the Translators to the Reader, the Kalendar, and the Genealogies. The general title, the map and last page of Revelation are provided in expert facsimile. All other pages and text are original. The pages were trimmed–however, the text is not affected. The binding appears to be from the 1700s–possibly from the time the book was trimmed. This book has been re-backed and marbled end sheets have been added. This is a fine example of this book. The Bible is housed in a beautiful full-leather clam-shell.
