I thought i'd have difficulty reading it, but after a few sentences I began to get accustomed to the spelling anomalies, because despite the spelling differences, the words are still pronounced basically the same. Also, I keep a small post-it sheet with the lettering differences as reminder tucked at back for reference.
This is definitely a collectors item. I haven't seen this antique quality Bible, and references around before.
It is a beautiful book and although the compiler opted to utilise a more modern typeface in lieu of the original blackletter I have no complaints. Sure, blackletter would have been nice, a near-facsimile for only $59CAD is not a bad deal at all.
The book came plastic wrapped band both slipcase and book were in exceptional condition.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to buy a bible that they don't plan on carrying with them everyday (for this bible is large and weighty!).

A large, nice print edition of the old 1611 King James. Came in a nice sleve for protection and easy storage on a book shelf. Verbage is easy to read even in the old english. Read morePublished 10 months ago by CSG
