APOCRYPHA (original printing from 1611 King James Bible) finely bound.
London: Robert Barker, 1611. First edition, taken from the 'He' version, of the entire APOCRYPHA, Authorized Version, known as the King James Bible, 1611. Folio, finely bound in full morocco gilt, with printed title page and preface by the New York bookseller Charles Hamilton, probably early 1960s, where he attests that the text is from the 'He' version (taken from an error in Ruth III.15, corrected to 'she' shortly after) and thus much more desirable. Fine. 104 leaves (208 pp.) from the most famous book in the English language. The 1611 King James Apocrypha contained the following books: 1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, Tobit, Judith, Additions to Esther, Wisdom of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus, Baruch, Letter of Jeremiah, Prayer of Azariah, Susanna, Bel and the Dragon, Prayer of Manasseh, 1 Maccabees, and 2 Maccabees. In 2016 a copy of the complete Bible sold at Sotheby's for $320,000 plus the hammer: nearly $400,000. Fine.
