The Deluxe and Super Deluxe Facsimile "400th Anniversary" 1611 Editions
The King James Bible is the most printed book in the history of the world. This year marks its 400th Anniversary (1611 to 2011), and we offer these exact page-for-page photographic duplicates of the original 1611 King James Bible in 2 differently bound editions, as detailed below.
Behold, the "Holy Grail" of book collectors everywhere, the "Bible to end all Bibles", the First Edition of the beloved 1611 King James Bible. These faithful and exact reproductions of the very first King James Pulpit Bible are indeed works of art and fine craftsmanship beyond compare. Each edition is "more than a facsimile, it is a masterpiece."
Measuring the exact size of the original 1611 printing: an enormous 17-1/2 inches tall by 12 inches wide by 5-1/2 inches thick (including its slipcase), and weighing almost 30 pounds, so much it nearly takes two people to comfortably move it, this is the finest reproduction of the 1611 ever undertaken. Unlike other facsimiles, the Deluxe and Super Deluxe Editions are printed on 100% rag cotton linen sheet (not wood-pulp paper), just like the original 1611. The originals that were actually printed in 1611 were commissioned by King James I to be literally chained to the pulpit of every church in England. Now you can own a facsimile replica of that exact same bible.
The King James Bible is the only book in the world that can claim one billion copies in print. For this company and the majority of our customers, the English language Bible as we know it today IS the King James Bible. Original First Editions have sold for over $400,000 at recent auctions. These affordable facsimiles make it possible for everyone to have a First Edition.
These massive pulpit folios make a great centerpiece for the communion table or the entry-way in a church. They are also quite popular as centerpieces for private home libraries. If you are looking for something that will make people stop and stare, this is it! Photographs cannot adequately show what a stunning and magnificent display piece these enormous folios are.
Super Deluxe Edition
The ‚ÄúSuper Deluxe‚ÄĚ is bound in the finest grade of full-grain, glove-soft, hand-tooled, exquisite leather wrapped over furniture-grade birch wood board, with extra-large spine hub-bands and gold spine stamping. No detail was overlooked. It's just like the real ones, visually IDENTICAL to an original 1611, except that it is absolutely brand new, and less than one-half-of-one-percent the cost of the last 1611 sold at auction.
The standard ‚ÄúDeluxe‚ÄĚ is bound in a high-quality beautifully-grained imitation leather, with the same size and weight as the Super Deluxe Edition.
