A vintage quarto King James
1613 'He' Bible in a WELL PRESERVED, gorgeously rebound condition.
Beautifully well preserved over almost 4 centuries - one of the
first King James Bibles printed with still some of the first edition
(of 1611) printing errors, including the famous misprint in Ruth
3:15 ("... and he went into the city" instead of
she, see also one of the pictures below). This is also the
FIRST black letter quarto edition of the KJV ever printed. Title: "The
Holy Bible, containing the Old Teftament, and the New: Newly
Tranflated out of the Original Tongues: And with the former
translations diligently compared and revifed, By his Majefties
fpeciall commandement, Imprinted at London By Robert Barker, Printer
to the Kings moft Excellent Maieftie. ANNO 1613."

Testament title are present, printed within decorative woodcut
borders, all prelims are present, Apocrypha present, double column black letter text, both

unofficial title of the 'HE BIBLE'.
