The KJV 1611 Bible, Deluxe Edition, smythe sewn, features unmistakably superior craftsmanship evident in the hand-sewn binding and beautifully gilded pages.
A special Bible for collectors, for students, and for everyone who cherishes the King James Version.
For nearly 400 years, the Authorized Version of the Bible-popularly known as the King James Version-has been beloved for its majestic phrasing and stately cadences. No other book has so profoundly influenced our language and our theology.
Over time, however, the text has suffered subtle and occasionally troublesome alterations. This attractive edition preserves the original 1611 edition. Word for word and page for page, the text with its original marginal notes, preface (“The Translators to the Reader”), and other introductory material appear as they first did. The sole concession to modernity is a far more readable roman typeface set by nineteenth-century master printers.
Elegantly bound with old-world quality craftsmanship, this is the perfect edition of the incomparable King James Version for study and for sheer enjoyment.
Word-for-word facsimile of the original 1611 Authorized Version
Handsome page design with clearer modern type and decorative initials is convenient to read and reference
The text is complete with the Apocrypha, plus the original preface and translators' notes. Alfred Pollard's classic essay on pre-1611 English translations and the history of the Authorized Version is also included
"The Authorized or King James Version is the most influential English Bible in history. This facsimile is a word-for-word, letter-for-letter reproduction of the original 1611 edition, set in readable type and is a valuable and essential addition to every Bible library." —John R. Kohlenberger III, author or co-editor of more than three dozen biblical reference books and study Bibles
Is this a regular bible to read or just for studying or just a novelty?

This can be used for either.
The spelling and punctuation is standard for the 1600's. This may make it harder to read, due to the odd spellings for words.
