I have wanted an original copy of the 1611 edition of the King James Bible with all of the original words, spellings, font, and layout, which this edition does. The many changes, especially in spelling, between a recently printed King James Bible and the 1611 edition shows how much language changes over time even when the text is the same. Thank God for the work of editors for the thousands of detailed changes they make to keep the text consistent with modern English!
Historic facsimile edition best experience of 1611

This historic and accessible facsimile edition of the King James commissioned 1611 translation of the Holy Bible is an amazing way to experience one of the most definitive early English editions. It comes complete with the Apocrypha and an introductory essay about the importance of the 1611 edition. I prefer the Old English, it feels more historic; and the artistic nature of the lettering and overall layout (as well as the cover art for both the Old and New Testaments) give this edition a very elegant feel.
