John Dryden famously described the Authorized or King James Version of the Bible as 'a book which, if everything else in our language should perish, would alone suffice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power'. In this very fine edition marking the 400th anniversary of the publication of the new translation in 1611, the dignity and resonance of its literary style is complemented by 92 reproductions of some of the greatest Biblical art of the last four centuries. Without Aprocrypha. Slip-cased.
