From the Easton Press "An exquisite leather-bound limited edition of just 400 hand-numbered copies! Like the 1611 original, the King James Bible: The Classic 1611 Edition is an impressive volume. Designed to represent the glory and authority of the scriptures, the massive folio-sized volume was meant for churches, where it would be displayed upon the pulpit and used by the minister during services. This amazing limited edition volume features: All the original layouts and spellings - just as the book first appeared! All the original decorative title pages and "historiated" initial letters. Illustrated title pages for the Bible and New Testament. The books of the Apocrypha, a Bible Genealogy, the dedication to King James I, and an essay by the translators - all found in the original First Edition. A custom-crafted slipcase for storage and display."
