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 200 beautiful, rarely collected full-page illustrations by Gustave Doré (1832–1883). The Holy Bible: King James Version is part of Barnes & Noble's series of quality leatherbound volumes. Each title in the series presents a classic work in an attractively designed edition bound in genuine bonded leather, with beautiful illustrations and breathtaking endpapers. These books make elegant additions to any home library.

I have loved this ediction!
You would think with such a nice cover that it would at least be red letter. And the pages are far thicker than necessary. Seriously, the only thing this has going for it is the cover.
