I have two King James Bibles that I am interested in knowing more about. If I could get some help from some of you scholars. The first is relatively new (compared to what I consider old). The bottom of the front page has the statement: "Buffalo: Published by Phinney & Co. 1850" It has an introduction called: "To the Reader." and below that [from Collins' Bible] What does this mean? Then that heading is followed by what is apparently the standard KJ introduction. It has several woodcut pictures in it. Both have brown hardcover binding. The second one a little older, but in a little better shape is: "Philadelphia: Printed and Published by M. Carey, No. 121, Chestnut Street 1817" Both have the same title on the title page: The HOLY BIBLE containing the Old and New Testaments, together with the Apocrypha: translated out of the original tongues, etc. This one has Tables of Scripture weights, measures and coins and John Brown's concordance Embellished with seventy maps and historical Engravings. On the inside of the cover is a name plate The Property of Mary Brown Bought April 15th 1818 Price $12,,50 cts. The name plate is written with a quill pin except for the "Mary Brown" which appears to be printed. Can anybody shed any light on the actual versions I have here or anything else concerning these Bibles? It is interesting that they contain the Apocrypha, but do NOT have them listed the way the Catholic Bibles are. They are kept seperate between the ot and nt. Who would be (or what denomination or group) using these types of Bibles. They are in excellent shape considering the age. These are not the little teacher's Bibles that were printed by the dozens. These are about 9 inches by 11 inches and about 4" thick. Fairly large print, easy to read.
