    Were their that many?

    Were they ALL just obvious copying errors?

    I only have it on the E-sword Bible program on my laptop. I haven't found an acceptable quality wise, affordable printed version with original spellings yet.

    What about one with modern spelling in it?

    I would be most interested actually in the study notes, as those were by the reformers, correct?

    There would a good number of differences made between the 1611 edition of the KJV and the 1769 Oxford KJV edition.

    Present KJV editions are not identical to the 1769 Oxford edition. Changes continued to be made after 1769. Based on my examination of the 1769 Oxford edition in comparison to present KJV editions, I think that there have been over 200 changes in spelling since 1769. That is not counting the hundreds and thousands of words where the letter that looked like an "f" used for a long "s" was changed to "s" around 1810. In addition, there would be over 100 changes from the 1769 involving LORD/Lord and God/GOD. There are also a few differences in capitalization of words such as "high" in "most High". In addition, the 1769 Oxford had around 40 renderings that are different from those in present KJV editions.

    Thus, there have been around 350 to 400 changes to the text of the KJV since 1769 in many present KJV editions.

    NOT copying mistakes, but actually revisions/changes in the received as "perfect" text?
