Product Description

Oxford is proud to announce a limited edition of the 1611 text of the King James Bible, hardcover with real leather covering, gilt edging, ribbon markers, gift presentation plate, and protective cloth slipcase.
This is the most authoritative edition of the King James Bible available. The text of the 1611 edition differs from modern editions of the King James Version in thousands of details, and this edition is the most authentic version of the original text that has ever been published. It follows the 1611 text page-for-page and line-for-line, reproducing all misprints rather than correcting them. The volume also reprints the large body of preliminary matter, which includes genealogies, maps, and lists of readings, as well as the translator's preface to the reader. The text features an easy-to-read modern font instead of the black-letter type of the original, with the exception of the original decorative letters and early page ornaments, which have been reproduced. The volume concludes with an essay by Renaissance Studies expert, Gordon Campbell, on the first edition of the King James Bible.
The 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible will be a major event, with celebrations held all over the world. This beautiful Anniversary Edition will make an elegant keepsake with which to remember this event as well as a marvelous gift for anyone interested in the Bible.

Publisher's Description

This 400th anniversary edition of the King James Version of the Bible is a reprint of the 1611 text, in an easy-to-read roman font instead of the black-letter type of the original. The original capital letters, many of which are pictorial, have been restored to each chapter in order to replicate the visual appeal of the early editions.
The 1611 text is followed page-for-page and line-for-line, and all misprints are reproduced rather than corrected. The large body of preliminary matter, which includes genealogies, maps, and lists of readings, is also included. The text of the 1611 edition differs from modern editions of the King James Version in thousands of details, and this edition is the most authentic version of the original text that has ever been published.
The volume concludes with an essay by Gordon Campbell on the first edition of the King James Bible.

Ask a Question

|

Q: Is this a facsimile of the blackletter edition or a reprint of the 1911 Roman type replica? A similar edition being produced by Nelson is specifically described in your catalogue as set in "Roman type for easier reading". This suggests to me it is a reprint of the 1911 Roman type replica which has always been available through CBD.So is the Oxford edition simply another edition of this, or is it in fact a facsimile of the original 1611 blackletter edition? The description "easy to read font" is more ambiguous.

A:

The text features an easy-to-read modern font instead of the black-letter type of the original, with the exception of the original decorative letters and early page ornaments, which have been reproduced.
