1611 King James Bible Facsimile in Period Binding
Facsimile reproduction of the 1611 King James Bible, FIRST EDITION, measures approximately 11 inches tall by 8.75 inches wide by 3.5 inches thick, and weighs about 10 pounds. Originally printed by Robert Barker, printer to the King's Most Excellent Majesty, in London.
Produced by Bible Museum. We are a Value Added Reseller in the United States providing the appropriate, and much needed, upgrade with an appropriate rich black Moroccan leather period binding. This is the way a real Bible should be done. It is hand crafted. We interviewed many book binders, and zeroed in on one, who bound this for us to demonstrate capability. It is indeed exquisite.
There is nothing more beautiful than a BIG beautiful Bible that has been hand crafted with love, skill, and great care. This King James Bible is BEAUTIFUL. Crisp and sharp details. Each page was computer-scanned from the original, and printed on heavy cream paper. The real leather period binding with raised bands finishes this master piece.
The typeface of the original King James Bible builds on the earlier Authorized Versions for the Church of England. We believe that the punch cutter for the blackletter typeface was Dutch. That same typeface was used in the Great Bible of Henry VIII, the Bishop's Bible under Queen Elizabeth, and the King James Bible. The main text is gothic black letter. The chapter summaries are set in Roman type. Cross references in the margins are set in Roman type as well as italics. Words that do not appear in the original Hebrew and Greek in the main text are in Roman type.
Contains the full prefatory content: The Dedication to King James, the translator's To The Reader Preface, the Calendar, the Holy Land Map, the Genealogy, and of course the entire Old Testament, Inter-Testamental Books (as specifically mandated by King James), and New Testament. This bible is exactly as it was first published in 1611. It's the real thing as authorized by King James and appointed to be read in the churches.
If you are looking for the real thing, go back to the original, and invest in a real bible in a real period binding in genuine leather.
