I searched for several months and finally found a copy for less than $17 CAD. Apparently when it was first available it could be purchased at places like Walmart for $7. It is a limited edition and now can be sold for much higher prices. I find it amazing to have the opportunity to read from the pages of a facsimile of the original 1611 King James Bible. I will treasure it.

For 8 bucks how could you go wrong?? Celebrate the 400th anniversary of the Word of God with an official replica of the 1611 King James Bible minus the apocrypha. This is a steal for such a great product. I bought 3 of these and got free shipping! I am extremely satisfied and highly recommend this item. And it is readable, the font just forces you to read a little slower which isn't a bad thing.

HASH(0xa29d1828) out of 5 stars This is less than $10? April 2 2011
By JS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This bible is a fascimile reproduction of the 1611 King James Bible. Zondervan was able to produce the bible with the help of Greatsite.com. It uses the same bold, gothic print that was used in the 1611 KJV. Other publishers, like Hendrickson, change the font to a Roman type to make it easier to read. That isn't necessarily bad, but it is not an authentic look. The next lowest price bible fascimile reproduction of the 1611 KJV that I am aware of is $179. Of course, that one is bigger (not quite full size). This one is a hand size bible that's about 2.5 inches thick.

This particular edition is printed on paper that is much like that of an average paperback book. It's not bible paper which explains why it is so thick. The hardcover is covered in an imitation leather-like covering that isn't too bad. The beginning contains the dedication to King James, the translators to reader, genealogies, and some other info. Unfortunately, they did cut out the Apocrypha which is disappointing.

All in all, this is an excellent bible for at this price. If you are trying to buy a bible for general reading, this isn't it as it uses a Gothic type. This bible is a great way to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible.

By Photoss359 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I shall attempt to keep this short...

Pros:
- It's the 1611 King James!
- Preserves original fonts in the text, prefaces, everything
- Small, a departure from the massive folio-sized original
- It's only $8 ($5 at WalMart) <<<

Cons:
- Missing the Apocrypha
- Not sturdy (cheap materials)
- Small (feels too small at times)
- Light fading on some pages, but especially on the chapter headings (not illegible)

Perfect for: leaving on your bedside table to pick up and read a Psalm or Proverb in the morning.

Last year, one couldn't find a 1611 King James replica for less than $179 (and that's the reduced size reference variant!). Numerous versions with Roman fonts and the like have cropped up as of late, but this just beats them all with its price. I bought a number of them to give away as gifts, as well as multiple copies for myself. If you even visited this item today perusing Amazon, just stick it in your cart, you cannot go wrong (unless your expectations of an $8 photocopy of a 400 year old Bible are unrealistic...). If this was $30, I'd give it 4/5 stars, but since Zondervan saw fit to practically gift us this, it earns 5/5 in my book. It's not perfect, and it's far from a replica of a complete and whole full-size King James Bible, but it's definitely $341 cheaper than that.

The Original 1611 had 80 books buyer beware this is a ripoff. The makers of this know that people are wanting the original and trying to rip the people who are waking up.

HASH(0xa4b0d090) out of 5 stars I am thrilled to have this at a price I can afford. Jan. 29 2012
By Claire in Springfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
On Aprl 1, 2011, I saw this book displayed with no fanfare at WalMart in a narrow cardboard bookcase near the door. The up-front price caught my eye, $4.97 for a hard-bound thick volume. I flipped a couple of pages and immediately knew I had found a personal treasure.

Other reviewers complain about the typography, but the time to become familiar with this comparatively recent appearance in literature is worth the small effort. I have no problem with the typeface because I studied German for three years in public school. Our texts had the same appearance (lower-case 's' looks like 'f' and doubled 's' looks like a upper-case B). Only casual mention was made of this type style by the teacher because it was not difficult.

About the reduced type, I remember salivating over the two-volume edition of the complete Oxford English Dictionary which came with a large rectangular magnifying glass and a slipcase in the 1960's.

Along with my first Bible for my approaching twelfth birthday in 1947, this copy shares a place of honor on my bookcase shelf.

Earlier today I stumbled onto the Great Site page. All this time I thought my several King James Bibles were unadulterated. Even with the omission of the Apocrypha, this is a treasure.

HASH(0xa4b0d174) out of 5 stars too small Nov. 30 2012
By Drew H Sandidge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
this product tells you the size but it does not let you know that it is basically illegible because the font has be shrunk down from its original form. wish it were bigger. I am not sure what i am going to do with it bc i never throw out a Bible, i guess i will donate it. don't buy this one if you plan to read it.
