KJV 1611 Bible 400th Anniversary Edition, Hardcover
This edition is a very valuable addition to my biblical library. The Bibliographical Introduction alone is extremely important, and is one of the best presentations of the history of the English Bible that I have ever read. The 1611 calendar and almanac pages are invaluable in the labor of reconciling the Jewish (biblical) and Gregorian calendars, to which I have devoted a great deal of time and effort.

A good reference guide
I recommend this Bible to be used as a study guide to the Bible you usually use. I discovered that some words in the KJV and NKJV were added in 1947, which is totally unacceptable. The original scripture has shown that they don't have or talk about anything remotely the same as in the up to date Bibles. I urge everyone to study the original scripture for the full meaning of what God was saying during this time!

NOT the 1611 King James Bible
I ordered this King James 1611 Bible 400th Anniversary because is was being advertised as being a facsimilie and just like the originial 1611 King James Bible - It is not!! I have seen the original and have facsimilies of the 1611 Bible and the print is all wrong, it is missing drawings and other items in the orginial. It does not have the correct Title Page, Cover Page, Geneology pages, and it is not a facsimilie. (if you see the Matthew Bible 1537 the style and type of writing should be closer to it than what is in this Bible). If you are wanting a real facsimilie of the 1611 King James Bible and how it originially looked - this is not it. This is more along the line of the 1833 reprinting of the King James Bible.

Feels like your reading a history book!
This Bible feels very historical by the fonts throughout the pages. I like the fact that it contained the Apocrypha, such as it did when it was first published. The book is near personal size and the letters are somewhat small so if you have difficulty reading, this might prove challenging for you. However, overall I am quite happy with my purchase and will enjoy reading and studying the Word of G-d as it was written during the early modern period.
