    It's not a facsimile, but rather has been retypeset, which is disappointing. Otherwise, though, I have enjoyed owning one like it.

    What happened to the Nelson AV1611 actual facsimile copy like I have? It is most excellent and allows one to see the myth of AV1611 churches first hand!

    It was hardbound, $19.99 and matched the KJV1769 and NKJV in a three-volume set.

    That's the one I have. It's not a facsimile because it's retypeset. According to what I've read, the original was in gothic type with added words in roman type. The Nelson edition, like more-modern-than-1611 KJVs, is set in roman type with added words in italics.

    The Hendrickson edition seems to differ a little from the Nelson version (not the text, but in some of the other features), and is available in genuine leather. If I'm not mistaken (always a possibility), the 1611 printings of the KJV were considerably larger than normal books of today, so the Gothic type was more readable. Once you reduce that type of font it becomes very hard to make out, thus the change to Roman. Too bad; I'd like to see an exact reproduction done sometime.

    If you have the same one I do, it is out of print, according to Amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com......

    Yes, but the 1599 Geneva, and Tyndale's and Wycliffe's, are searchable on e-sword, as is the Vulgate. I've downloaded over 50 Bibles this week. Cool!

    It's a shame about those Nelson reprints no longer being produced. A year or so ago, you could pick them up for about $20 each, and I was tempted to buy a whole box. I should have. [​IMG] There are currently 3 "like new" for sale on amazon's New/Used section, starting at $128 :eek:

    I've seen a few truer "facsimiles" that are photo-reprints (i.e. thus are not retypeset into a Roman font), but they average around $300. If anyone is really interested in these, I can provide links.

    Or you can just go to http://www.greatsite.com and drop $130,000 for an original. [​IMG]

    Brian, why did you have to torture me with that "she" KJV ???? [​IMG]
    I have asked God for an original AV, and not wanting to be greedy, I specifically asked for a "she" AV.....
