Item Description: OUP Oxford, Oxford, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: Mint. Dust Jacket Condition: Mint. First Edition. This mint unread copy is bound in cloth covered boards with bright gilt titling to the spine, tight, white, bright and square. The unclipped dust wrapper is in mint condition. Produced during the lifetime of Shakespeare and Donne, the King James Version of the Bible has long been viewed as the most elegantly written and poetic of the many English translations. Now, having reached its four hundredth anniversary, it remains one of the most frequently used Bibles in the English-speaking world, especially in America. Lavishly illustrated with reproductions from early editions of the KJB, Bible: The Story of the King James Version offers a vivid and authoritative history of this renowned translation, ranging from the Bible's inception to the present day. Gordon Campbell, a leading authority on Renaissance literatures, tells the engaging and complex story of how this translation came to be commissioned, who the translators were, and how the translation was accomplished. Campbell does not end with the printing of that first edition, but also traces the textual history from 1611 to the establishment of the modern text by Oxford University Press in 1769, shedding light on the subsequent generations who edited and interacted with the text and bringing to life the controversies surrounding later revisions. In addition, the author examines the reception of the King James Version, showing how its popularity has shifted through time and territory, ranging from adulation to deprecation and attracting the attention of a wide variety of adherents. Since the KJB is more widely read in America today than in any other country, Campbell pays particular attention to the history of the KJB in the United States. Finally, the volume includes appendices that contain short biographies of the translators and a guide to the 74-page preliminaries of the 1611 edition. A fitting tribute to the enduring popularity of the King James Version, Bible offers an illuminating history of this most esteemed of biblical translations. Size: 354pp. Bookseller Inventory # 016257

The King James or Authorised Version of the Bible is an English translation of the Christian Bible first published in 1611. The New Testament was translated from the Textus Receptus (Received Text) edition of the Greek texts, so called because most extant texts of the time were in agreement with it. The Old Testament was translated from the Masoretic Hebrew text. (Modern English Bibles such as the New American Standard Bible and the English Standard Version decline to use the Textus Receptus, opting instead for what many modern scholars feel are more reliable critical editions.) The King James Version has had a profound effect on English literature. The works of famous authors such as John Milton, Herman Melville, John Dryden, and William Wordsworth are deeply inspired by it. Although it is often referred to as the King James Version, particularly in the United States, King James was not personally involved in the translation, though his authorisation was legally necessary for the translation to begin, and he set out guidelines for the translation process, such as prohibiting footnotes and ensuring the position of the Church of England was recognised on various points. It is more commonly known as the "Authorized Version" in the United Kingdom. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 002454

Item Description: Grabhorn Press for the Book Club of California, 1937. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. First Edition. B00ESU0Y54 1937 limited edition (300 copies), printed for the Book Club of California at the Grabhorn Press (San Francisco, California), 10 7/8 x 15 3/4 inches tall hardbound, no dust jacket, pale green cloth boards over tan buckram spine, paper label printed in red to spine, 1611 leaf from Chapters 4-5 of the Book of Daniel tipped in, text printed in red and black, some initial letters in multiple colors, [2], xxii, [2] pp. Slight bumping to lower tips of book. Moderate rubbing and edgewear to covers, especially at tips. A 6 x 6 inches area of abrasions to the rear cover, which has mild to moderate staining.

Note that this is a heavy and oversized book, so additional postage will be required for international or priority orders. ~LR1~ The King James Version (KJV), also known as the Authorized Version (AV) or King James Bible (KJB), is an English translation of the Christian Bible for the Church of England begun in 1604 and completed in 1611. Two editions of the whole Bible are recognized as having been produced in 1611, which may be distinguished by their rendering of Ruth 3:15; the first edition reading 'he went into the city,' where the second reads 'she went into the city'; these are known colloquially as the 'He' and 'She' Bibles. The leaf in this copy is from the first edition, the 'He' Bible, from the Book of Daniel, Chapter 4, verses 4 through 37 (dealing with Nebuchadnezzar's Second Dream), and Chapter 5, verses 1 through 6 ('Belshazzar the King made a great feast to a thousand of his Lords, and dranke wine before the thousand'), with a lovely 'B' ornate dropcap at the outset of Chapter 5 for Belshazzar. The first edition for the King James Bible is especially prized by collectors - a complete second edition in average condition will sell for $20,000-25,000 while a first edition of the same quality will bring $50,000-75,000.
