This edition is a facsimile of the original text, the paper is thick and it's hard-cover has a nice design on it indicating that it is a 400 year old edition, it also has a great introduction at the front explaining about the edition.
Overall this Bible is very highly recommended for it's price and design.
This special volume consists of both the Old and New Testaments and the Apocrypha and has a most informative preface and Bibliographical introduction. It is beautifully decorated - 1611 style, with side note references on each page and it is printed, of course, in 'olde Englishe'...... with, therefore, the consequence that is a little more difficult to read !!
However, the assumed claim that it has been in print for 400 years is a trifle delusive ! In fact, this identical edition lasted just 158 years !
In 1769 it was revised by Blayney and it is, in fact, that modification that continues in print today. Some olde Englishe, of course remains.. ie. the 'thee' and 'thou' ..but the letters 'u' and 'v' have been made independent of one another! The letter 'J'...had recently been added to the English alphabet, and was introduced into this edition. This necessitated new words being created...or maybe ' invented' is more accurate. These words were not intended to alter meanings in any way but their Hebrew, Greek or Latin may have blurred..
One may reason as to why reprint the early King James edition.
Firstly, this brings a new awareness to the magnificent achievement of translating the Scriptures into English and thereby making them available to many more people. That is reason enough to celebrate ! However, I believe there is another reason of ( almost ?) equal value. For Christians generally, for serious Bible students, for ardent historians and all seekers of the truth; to better understand events, peoples, relationships, indeed, the history of Christianity - this 1611 copy is invaluable. Language does evolve and only by going back to the past can there be real discernment - re- examination is paramount.
Seeke and ye shall finde; knocke, and it shall be opened vnto thee !
By the way, readers, be prepared ! This book has an imminent sensational earth-shattering ending !
