One of the first acts of King James I when he acceded to the throne of England was to commission a new translation of the bible. The most lasting and influential of all his deeds, this bible is greatly loved, not only by Christians but by readers with appreciation of fine and poetic language.
The Folio Society worked closely with Cambridge University Press using the text as restored by David Norton, the world’s leading authority on the King James Bible. Not only
does Norton’s text restore the authority of the 1611 original, but it is also presented in the most elegant style in single column paragraphs with headings in red – a tradition
of fine Bible printing for centuries.
