    ...in the archives of Lady Frances Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge:

    Times Literary Supplement 14 October 2015

    "...the earliest known draft of any part of the King James Bible, unmistakably in the hand of one of the King James translators.
    The draft appears in a manuscript notebook formerly belonging to Samuel Ward (1572–1643), who was part of the team of seven men in Cambridge charged with translating the Apocrypha."

    While shedding light on one team's methodology, it's regretable the manuscript dealswith the Apocrypha and not the inspired Word.
