Of the three 1611 King James Bible Facsimiles Editions we offer… this one is far and away the most popular and best seller. Just like the more expensive “Super Deluxe” edition, this much more affordable “Deluxe” edition also measures the exact size of the original 1611 printing: an enormous 17 ½ inches tall by 12 inches wide by 5 ½ inches thick (including its slipcase), and weighing a whopping 30 pounds. We even faithfully reproduced the small quantity of decorative red ink in the prefatory section.
Constructed of the highest grade of beautifully grained burgundy-brown Italian “Fiscagomma Leatherette” (the best imitation leather in the world – actually stronger than real leather), it has a thick, soft, supple texture and a look so much like real leather; everyone who examines it in our showroom is shocked when we tell them its not real leather. Many people insist that we must be mistaken because after handling it they remain convinced that it is an excellent grade of genuine leather. We challenge you to see if you can tell the difference between Fiscagomma Leatherette and real full-grain leather… honestly, not one in a hundred people would question whether or not it was real leather. You’ve got to see it and touch it to believe it.
