"The most important book in English religion and culture and one of the most influential texts printed in the English language": First edition, first issue of the King James Bible
London: Robert Barker, 1611.
First edition, first issue of the King James Bible; the Great King James “He” Bible which contains the erroneous phrase “and he went into the citie” in Ruth 3:15, which has been corrected to “…she went…” in all subsequent printings of the Bible. Folio, bound in full early calf with decorative blindstamped borders, brass corner plates and centerpieces, brass clasps and catch plates with rebacked straps, raised bands to the spine, contemporary endpapers, with the title page. In very good condition, with three leaves (title page, first preliminary and final leaf of text) supplied in facsimile. Exceptionally rare and desirable, scarcely seen on the market.
