Overview

When the King James translation of the Bible was first published in 1611, it was the first time that many people throughout the English-speaking world were able to read the Old and New Testaments in their native tongue. It proved so wildly popular, in fact, that it was the only book that many families owned. The majestic scope and poetry of the King James translation's language made an incomparable impact on Western religion, culture, and literature that still resonates today. This gorgeous gift edition also contains over two hundred beautiful, rarely collected full-page illustrations by Gustave Dore (1832-1883).
