The King James version, or the "Authorized" version of the English Bible was made by a team of translators appointed by James I. It was first published in this edition of 1611 and remained the standard English Bible until the nineteenth century. This copy, with a contemporary English binding, is one of the treasures of the Burke Library's Thompson Collection.
