1455 Gutenberg Bible Facsimile Set with
1611 King James Facsimile



2 Volume Gutenberg Bible Facsimile


The 1611 Super Deluxe Edition

 

New 1454-1455 Gutenberg Bible Facsimile

Hardcover, 2 vols. with booklet, 13.5 x 10in., over 1,200 pages

This facsimile edition derives from one of the very few surviving complete vellum Latin originals worldwide; the Göttingen Library edition, one of the most valuable books in the world, listed in the UNESCO Memory of the World program. All 1,200+ pages of this artistic and technological masterwork are included, along with a companion book written by Stephan Füssel, Gutenberg-Chair at Mainz University, introducing Gutenberg, his transformative influence, and two important documents of the time: the Göttingen Model Book which was used to illuminate the Göttingen Library edition and the only surviving notary document by Ulrich Helmasperger, which records the history of this unique invention and its product, the Gutenberg Bible.


The 1611 Super Deluxe edition with an Original Old Testament Title Leaf.

Exact Replica of The 1611 King James Bible

The King James Bible is the most printed book in the history of the world, and it is our most popular facsimile reproduction.To commemorate the 400th Anniversary of this masterpiece.

Any so-called “1611” King James Version you buy today at the local Christian Bookstore is absolutely NOT the 1611.   It is Blaney’s 1769 Revised Oxford Edition, even though it admits that nowhere, and may even say “1611” in the front… it’s just not true. Prepare to be shocked!  In fact, 20,000 spelling and punctuation changes and over 400 wording changes were made to the original 1611 to 1768 King James Bible, when compared to King James Bibles published between 1769 and today, and fourteen entire books plus extra prefatory features have been removed from almost every printing done since 1885!

The 1611 Super Deluxe edition is printed on rag cotton sheet, stand 17 inches tall, spread nearly 30 inches when opened, and weigh a whopping 30 pounds! They are the actual size of the original 1611 giant pulpit folio first edition printing. The only difference is in the bindings: the “Super Deluxe” is bound in the finest grade of full-grain, glove-soft, hand-tooled, exquisite leather with extra-large spine hub-bands…

Also included is an Original Title Page from an Old Testament Book.
