About this Item

A single leaf from the First Edition or the Editio Princeps of the King Jamesí Bible. Printed double-column with headlines and chapter lines, this leaf with three fine five line ornamental capital initials, text within woodcut rules, in both gothic and roman letter. Royal Folio, Single leaf. A very fine and well preserved leaf with only a hint of wear, discoloration or staining. A large leaf a bit ragged along the inner edge from the sewing from the original binding. A LEAF IN PERFECT CONDITION FROM THE BOOK OF PSALMS FROM THE EDITIO PRINCEPS OF KING JAMES' BIBLE, COMMONLY KNOWN AS THE 'AUTHORIZED' VERSION, A LANDMARK OF PRINTING AND THE MOST FAMOUS OF ALL ENGLISH BIBLES. The King James Bible was described by W. A. Jackson as "perhaps the single most important influence upon the development of English prose style." It was royally commissioned, in the hopes of reconciling or ameliorating the conflicts between the Bishop's Bible, officially read in services, and the Geneva Bible, much more popular among the laity, but mistrusted within much of the Church hierarchy as being aggressively radical, especially in its annotations.
