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.

There are many questions about the 1611 version of the King James Bible. A few include:

  • 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 to these questions is quite simple. When the first King James Bible was printed, there was not a dictionary. There was no standardized spelling for most complicated words. The truth is, there were many printing mistakes. When Dr. Blayney finished, he had corrected more than 20,000 spelling and punctuation “mistakes” done by Robert Barker and his printing presses which produced the 1611 King James Bible.

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. This expert facsimile is designed to be displayed at an altar in your church, your business, or your home.

These large format Bibles measure a huge 15 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide by 3 inches thick, and they are bound by hand using the most beautiful and most durable cover of Italian Fiscagoma Buffalino, selected to last a lifetime of daily use.

This heirloom will be a true collector’s edition to be proudly displayed in observance of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation that we date from Martin Luther nailing the 95 Thesis to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany on October 31, 1517.
