400th Anniversary Edition

Edited by Oxford University Press
Gordon Campbell

  • A luxury edition King James Bible to mark the 400th anniversary of the translation, with leather binding, gilt edging, ribbon marker, gift presentation plate and protective cloth slipcase
  • Uses the authoritative 1611 text free from changes that have crept into later editions and incorporates original preliminary materials, including the translators' preface to the reader
  • Re-incorporates early page ornaments and decorative letters into the roman typeface setting to create a new text setting that is both easily legible and beautiful to look at
  • The volume concludes with an essay by Renaissance Studies expert, Gordon Campbell, on the first edition of the King James Bible
