A King James Bible at the London Antiquarian Book Fair

Visitors to the 54th London International Antiquarian Book Fair later this week will be able to see an historic King James Bible, which celebrates its 400th anniversary this year.

The King James Bible, more commonly known as the Authorized Version, was first published in London in 1611. The bible comes from the collection of the Museum of the Book in London’s East End, which has been built up over 35 years by the Reverend David Smith. It’s now a collection of global importance.

Reverend Smith is also giving a lecture at the fair on Friday 10 June at 2pm called ‘Celebrating 400 years of the King James Bible: The book that changed the world’

More details about the event.
