Hendrickson Publishers KJV 1611 Bible Without Apocrypha, 400th Anniversary Edition Deluxe Hardcover

Celebrating the 400th anniversary of the 1611 King James Version Bible

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 19th-century master printers. Elegantly bound with old-world quality craftsmanship, this is the perfect edition of the incomparable King James Version for study and for sheer enjoyment.

Features include

  • The only word-for-word facsimile of the original 1611 Authorized Version on the market
  • Handsome page design with clearer 19th-century type and decorative initials is convenient to read and reference
  • The text is complete with the original preface and translators' notes. Alfred Pollard's classic essay on pre-1611 English translations and the history of the Authorized Version is also included
  • Ribbon marker
  • Presentation page
  • 7-point text size
  • 8.50" x 5.50" x 1.20"

This Bible is really great! Once you get used to the Olde English, it is easy to read. I like knowing that I'm reading from the most accurate translation from the original texts. Thank you for making this both available and affordable.

I have used exclusively the King James Bible all my life. My favorite will always be the Old Scofield Study Bible. Even with the antiquated spelling, anyone who reads or studies their KJB will be able to enjoy/use this wonderful AV 1611 400th anniversary edition. Highly recommdended!
