The KJV 1611 Bible, Deluxe Edition, smythe sewn, features unmistakably superior craftsmanship evident in the hand-sewn binding and beautifully gilded pages. A special Bible for collectors, for students, and for everyone who cherishes the King James Version. For nearly 400 years, the Authorized Version of the Bible-popularly known as the King James Version-has been beloved for its majestic phrasing and stately cadences. No other book has so profoundly influenced our language and our theology. Over time, however, the text has suffered subtle and occasionally troublesome alterations. This attractive edition preserves the original 1611 edition. Word for word and page for page, the text with its original marginal notes, preface ("The Translators to the Reader"), and other introductory material appear as they first did. The sole concession to modernity is a far more readable roman typeface set by nineteenth-century master printers.
Damage on this Bible may include a customized imprint on the cover that has been noticeably covered over with gold or silver stamping.
