Each 1611 King James Bible Leaf, comes from a large folio edition, about 15" x 10".. FIRST EDITION "She" variant, the editor's first correction of the 1611 "He" variant. Both variants are 59-line folios with interchangeable leaves, being nearly identical to each other, and differing only in some spellings and woodcuts. The "She" variant was likely published between 1611-1613. This variant, known affectionately as the "Queen" of 1611 leaves, is the same "edition" as the "He" variant, though some scholars like to separate them.
The leaves offered here are from the Old Testament only, in fine or better condition, without stains or tears. Leaves come in either an Archival Sleeve with Certificate of Authenticity (should you like to have it framed), or in an Archival Booklet should you like to keep it as is. The Cambric linen fiber Archival Booklet contains a full sized Certificate of Authenticiy, with both leaf and COA protected in separate archival sleeves. All leaves are "random" and pre-selected.
It is not possible to choose a specific bible verse or book at this time. But these "Random" leaves are unconditionally guaranteed and archivally safe. Your specific Original 1611 Old Testament Leaf will be chosen at random by the Publisher, and is guaranteed to be in FINE condition. The Biblical text is wholly intact. These original 1611 leaves are generally clean and bright with wide margins, though some may have light indications of their age. Each leaf is well packaged, and comes with a premium signed Certificate of Authenticity (COA), half sized for the Archival Sleeve and full sized for the Archival Booklet.
