    Look over the Margin Notes.
    They are of two types:

    1. Translator Margin Notes
    2. Cross reference notes (pointing to other parts of the Bible)

    Missing are the commentary notes, writings of men's thoughs
    about what the Bible means.

    I especially appreciate the marginal notes where they suggested possible alternate renderings. Gives us real insight into the minds of the translators

    Did you get an original edition of the first printing of the 1611 KJV or one of the digital reproduction editions of the 1611 KJV?

    And what's the font type?

    I have the Hendrickson printing in modern font, but small print. I hafta use special glasses to read it, as I'm EXTREMELY farsighted.

    I betcha it'll be hard for you to put it down until you've read it cover-to-cover, apocrypha, translators' comments & all! Ya might have two book markers, his & hers! I can promise you this: your insight of the KJV will double before February 1!
