VERY GOOD condition
A vintage quarto COMPLETE (!!) King James
1613 'He' Bible in a WELL PRESERVED condition.
Beautifully well preserved over almost 4 centuries - one of the
first King James Bibles printed with still some of the first edition
(of 1611) printing errors, including the famous misprint in Ruth
3:15 ("... and he went into the city" instead of
she, see also one of the pictures below). This is also the
FIRST black letter quarto edition of the KJV ever printed. Title: "The
Holy Bible, containing the Old Teftament, and the New: Newly
Tranflated out of the Original Tongues: And with the former
translations diligently compared and revifed, By his Majefties
fpeciall commandement, Imprinted at London By Robert Barker, Printer
to the Kings moft Excellent Maieftie. ANNO 1613."
Rare First Quarto 'HE' (much
rarer that the 'SHE' version) Edition. Both the general title and the New
Testament title are present, printed within decorative woodcut
borders, all prelims are present, Apocrypha present, double column black letter text, both
titles & the colophon also dated 1613. Also bound with the full
extensive two-table Concordance, a Book of Common Prayer (title
1641) and a musical/metrical Psalter (title 1619, almost complete,
lacks a few pages after the prayers)
A close reprint of the folio
edition of 1611, with the following edition points: Genesis X-16 'Emorite';
Ruth III-15 'he went'. Both titles omit the words 'Appointed'.
(Herbert 323, bound with the Concordances). The second stated
issue point has earned this historic edition of the King James the
unofficial title of the 'HE BIBLE'.
It also is bound with a Speed's Genealogies (including
the rare double page map!)
