1631 King James Bible RARE 1611 Copperplate TITLE Design OCTAVO Francis Fry
London: 1631. RARE EDITION The Authorized (King James) Version of the Bible With the Original Copperplate Title in Octavo One of Three Known Examples London, 1631/1630 "This is a very rare Bible." - Francis Fry One of three known copies of this edition. Writing in the nineteenth century, the esteemed collector Francis Fry wrote, "The only known copy with the copper plate title is in Lord Ashburnham's Library." Over a century after his death, we are delighted to have located a second example with the extraordinary original copperplate title... the iconic image most associated with the first folio edition of the King James Version in a rare octavo format. Herbert 439; D&M 336 Joe II. Xiii "Rent for Rend" Acts VI. iii "Who wee may" The General Title to this edition is the extremely unique original copper plate adaptation of C. Boel's featured design in 1611. This copy contains all titles, preliminaries and genealogies. The word "Appointed" occurs only on the general title. The NT title is within a woodcut architectural border like that used in many deuodecimo editions but with the figures of Fides and Religion on either side of the altar. This historic edition provides an institutional or individual collector with the opportunity to secure an extremely important early printing of the King James Bible at a fraction of the cost of a first edition folio...and offers the opportunity to acquire one of the rarest known printings of the English Bible. Additional information available upon request.
