DescriptionFull-Size "Super-Deluxe" 400th Anniversary Edition Genuine Leather Hand-Made Heirloom Binding
Here it is… the "Holy Grail" of book collectors everywhere… the "Bible to end all Bibles"… the First Edition of the beloved 1611 King James Bible. This faithful and exact reproduction of the very first King James Pulpit Bible is indeed a work of art and fine craftsmanship beyond compare. More than a "facsimile", it is a masterpiece.
Measuring the exact size of the original 1611 printing: an enormous 17 ½ inches tall by 12 inches wide by 5 ½ inches thick (including its slipcase), and weighing so much (30 pounds) it nearly takes two people to comfortably move it, this is the finest reproduction of the 1611 ever undertaken. This Super-Deluxe Edition is printed on 100% rag cotton linen sheet (not wood-pulp paper), just like the original 1611. We even faithfully reproduced the small quantity of decorative red ink in the prefatory section.
Constructed of the highest quality of thick burgundy red leather over five layers of solid birch wooden boards with extra-heavy duty stitching and large raised spine bands with gold spine stamping… no detail was overlooked. It also comes with a custom-made protective slipcase. Over $100,000 went into the set-up for production of this magnificent creation. It’s just like the real ones… visually IDENTICAL to an original 1611, and actually made out of the exact same materials as an original 1611… except that it is absolutely brand new, and costs less than half-of-one-perecent of the price of the last 1611 sold at auction.
These massive pulpit folios make a great centerpiece for the communion table or the entry-way in a church. They are also quite popular as centerpieces for private home libraries. If you are looking for something that will make people stop and stare… this is it! Photographs cannot adequately show what a stunning and magnificent display piece this enormous folio is.
If you want a huge full-size exact replica of the original 1611 King James Pulpit Folio First Edition Bible, and it's got to be bound in the finest genuine full-grain leather - just like the original was - this is your best (and only) option being offered by any Bible publisher today. It's simply breathtaking.
