    Histories of our English Bible often imply that there was no overall revision and editing of the English text of the KJV after the 1638 Cambridge until the 1762 Cambridge. The discovery of the 1743 Cambridge edition as a revision has indicated that English Bible histories may be mistaken in that assumption.

    I seem to have come across another revision of the KJV made after 1638 and before 1762.

    A KJV edition printed in London in 1660 by Henry Hills shows evidence of serious editing and revision.

    One clear example is the fact that this 1660 London KJV has the editing change to "ye" of many if not all of the 300+ case of the use of "you" in the nominative case found in the 1611 and other early KJV editions. This was 80 years before the many of the same changes were made in the 1743 Cambridge and in the 1769 Oxford. Perhaps the editor of the 1743 Cambridge made use of this earlier edition.
