    Hendrickson Publsihers has reprinted
    the original 1611 King James Bible (KJV).
    This is still in print and can be had
    for under $30 total and can be ordered
    on the internet.

    Nelson Publsihers reprinted a facimilie
    of the original 1611 KJV. It is out
    of print now. $60 plus is asked on
    E-bay for a used copy (usually not mentioneing
    you get it for uner $30 new from Hendrickson)

    Enough chit-chat. Do you posses
    in your library a copy of the
    original edition KJV1611?

    "I loue mine!"

    I laughed hard at this.

    Is your 1611 King James Bible a “he Bible” or a “she Bible?” Mine is a “he Bible.”

    1611 King James First Edition Pulpit Bible: “He” Variant
    One of the most highly sought-after items in the world of antiquarian books: the very first of the King James Bibles printed. One sold at a Sotheby's auction in 2001 for over $400,000. Ours sell for much less than that, and are in excellent condition. For details about the difference between the “He” and “She” variants of the 1611, see the description of the “She” variant below.
    An excellent investment opportunity; these Bibles have gone up in price over 25% every year for the past ten years. Imagine owning the first press run of the most printed book in history! Fewer than 200 original printings of the 1611 are known to exist (and out of that number, fewer than 50 are complete “He” variants). For better close-up images, be sure to check out our available stock of 1611 Leaves, starting under $300, in our Ancient Rare Bible Leaves section. Prices of our 1611’s vary depending on condition, page margin, and other factors. We have more than a dozen in stock, from which you may choose.
    Offered at $125,000 to $400,000

    1611 King James First Edition Pulpit Bible: “She” Variant
    This example is in a stunning, elaborate 18th Century silver binding. We have over a dozen others from which to choose. Because a typo in Ruth 3:15 is corrected to read "she went into the city" instead of "he went into the city", it is often assumed that these 1611 "She Bibles" are actually the SECOND printing of the original 1611 King James Bible, likely done within several weeks of the 1611 "He Bibles". Many scholars now agree that the much more likely explanation is that the "He" and "She" King James Bible First Editions of 1611 were done at approximately the SAME TIME on two different presses.
    There is no real evidence that one variant is any older than the other. The main reason “He” variants cost more, is simply because there are fewer of them (fewer than 50 known to exist). If you want an ORIGINAL 1611 King James First Edition, you can save a lot of money simply by choosing the "She" printing (of which fewer than 150 are known to exist).
    Offered at $75,000 to $150,000

    But then they expect a donation on top of that. So it really cost you more than that.

    You don't have to donate a plug nickel if you don't want to.

    Not very many will vote if this topic
    is on the second page of the list.
    In fact, i've found some that don't even
    know there are multiple pages of the
    topic list ....

    I believe Dr. Gene Scott has a photographic exact page for page huge leather bound facsimile for $400.00.

    Although some folks may not want to do business with him.

    Strangely, if they are the 1611 edition,
    they will say so. If they don't say
    who they are are, they are generally
    1769 (or is that 1762,it is hard to know :( )

    And why wouldn't "some folks" not want to do business with him? Could it be the price? Or are you already suggesting some negative conotation again?

    Greetings Precepts,

    Welcome back from your "absence".

    Speaking of negative comments, I see you haven't changed either. Of your 1800+ posts since 12/03 one would be challenged to find one that is not negative.

    Personally I like Gene Scott but many don't.

    He smokes cigars on his TV show and uses "coarse" language to irritate "legalists".

    Just giving a warning to those who might be offended.

    "You don't have to park your brains at the door of the church before you go in" Gene Scott.

    Ed, you've got me interested in the whole KJV edition thing...don't worry, I'm not going KJVo ;) ...but I just went and had a look through some of the KJVs I have here, no markings of any kind saying what edition they are.

    What sort of differences are there in the text to set them apart from each other?

    I have no idea.
    I can see a difference between my KJV1611,
    my KJV1873, and what i think (but it doesn't
    say) is either my KJV1769 or KJV1762.

    The secret is Ruth 3:15, last phrase.
    My KJV1611 facimilie says:

    Ruth 3:15d (KJV1611):
    " ... and hee went into the citie."

    Ruth 3:15d (KJV1769):
    " .. and she went into the city."

    Ruth 3:15d (KJV1873):
    " ... and he went into the city."

    Actuallly if you read Ruth 3:14-16 you will
    find probably Ruth went into the city
    first and the next day Boaz went into
    the city.
