Bible. English. 1611/1961. Authorized (i.e., King James Version).
[colophon: Cleveland: World Publishers Folio. [737] ff.. 1961] A fine full-size facsimile on specially made "antique" paper from the Ventura Mill at Cernobbio, Italy, faithfully reproducing the black-letter text of the first edition, first issue (the "He" issue) of the King James Bible. => The edition was limited to 1500 copies, of which this is number 878. It was printed by offset lithography and bound in full leather by Amilcare Pizzi of Milan in a handsome replica of the type of binding found on some copies of this edition. Binding as above with leather abraded at edges, spine-tips, and bands; joints open and fragile; lacks the slipcase. Interior fresh, clean, and lovely. A compromised copy, but a handsome and interesting production not necessarily easy to find on the market; a large volume priced to permit its strengthening by a conservator should that be wished for.
