    A guidebook to KJV editions entitled Facts from 400 Years of KJV Editions: Do We Use a 1769 KJV? is now available at an ondemand publisher's web site: www.lulu.com

    This 500+ page book has data or facts from a partial examination of over 400 editions of the KJV printed from 1611 until today. These over 400 editions include over twenty editions printed in the 1600's, over ninety editions printed in the 1700's, over one hundred forty editions printed in the 1800's, and many printed in the 1900's and today.

    This data demonstrates that the twenty to thirty or more varying editions of the KJV in print today are not identical in text to the 1769 Oxford edition of the KJV. There would be as many as 400 or more differences between the 1769 Oxford edition of the KJV and a typical present KJV edition.

    And yet KJVOs constantly maintain that things that are different are not the same.

    I've got to lend you my 1732 copy of the Baskett Bible sometime!

    Any chance of purchasing a digital copy directly from the author?
