Product Description


    1769 "Revised Standard Oxford Edition" of the 1611 King James Bible Facsimile Reproduction The most requested facsimile ever is finally available for the first time in history! In 1769 Dr. Benjamin Blayney completed his revision of the King James Bible and using Dr. Samuel Johnson’s first edition 1755 printing of the Johnson Dictionary the English language “came of age.” Spelling, punctuation, and grammar became standardized making it possible to teach succeeding generations the fledgling languages’ establishment as a great spoken and written language in the world of communication, commerce and education. Our most popular facsimile in all of our inventory is the 1611 First Edition King James Bible. There are a number of curious comments that we've heard about this exact facsimile and here are just a few: •Why are these words spelled so funny? •Why is this so difficult to read? •Why are there so many punctuation errors? •Why are there so many mistakes? The answer is quite simple to these questions. When the first King James Bible was printed there was not a dictionary. There was not a standarized spelling for most complicated words. The truth is there were many printing mistakes and when Dr. Blayney finished - he had corrected more than 20,000 spelling and punctuation "mistakes" done by Robert Barker and his printing presses that produced the 1611 King James Bible. To fully understand the incredible story of the King James Bible - every novice or scholar should read this essay (click here) written by the leading authority on the history of the English Bible - Dr. Craig H. Lampe. The Bible Museum is making it possible for every Bible loving person to own a facsimile of the first edition of the 1769 Revised Standard Oxford Edition King James Bible.
