A leaf from the very first press run of the original King James Bible: literally printed in the year 1611 in London, England… these leaves are over 400 years old. For many people, the English language Bible as we know it today IS the King James Bible, and there is no printing of the King James Bible even ONE year older than these 1611 leaves. They come with a beautiful Certificate of Authenticity printed on marbleized cardstock. The King James Bible remains the greatest book in the English language and the best-selling book of all time. Whether framed and displayed in your home or given as a wonderfully unique gift: these ancient original treasures are so large and beautifully typeset as to command the attention they deserve. They cause people to stop and stare in awe… and sometimes in disbelief that it could possibly be the real thing. It is!
These HUGE “Pulpit Folio” size leaves measure approximately 15 to 16 inches tall by 10 to11 inches wide… you can read them from halfway across the room. They are our largest, most beautiful, and most popular Bible leaves. Printed on 100% rag cotton linen sheet, not wood-pulp paper like books today; they remain in excellent condition… even after 400 years. Each leaf is a unique piece of ancient artwork, carefully produced one at a time by the King’s printers using a movable-type press, and later bound together into whole Bibles, and chained to every church pulpit in England. These genuine original antiquities are among the rarest and precious pieces of our history and our Christian heritage.
