In 1769, Dr. Benjamin Blayney completed his revision of the King James Bible, and using Dr. Samuel Johnson’s first edition 1755 printing of the Johnson Dictionary, the English language “came of age.” Spelling, punctuation, and grammar became standardized, making it possible to teach succeeding generations the fledgling languages’ establishment as an excellent spoken and written language in the world of communication, commerce, and education.

The most popular facsimile in our inventory is the 1611 First Edition King James Bible. There are several curious comments that we’ve heard about this exact facsimile, and here are just a few:

  • Why are these words spelled so funny?
  • Why is this so difficult to read?
  • Why are there so many punctuation errors?
  • Why are there so many mistakes?

The answer to these questions is quite simple. When the first King James Bible was printed, there was not a dictionary. There was not a standardized spelling for most complicated words. The truth is there were many printing mistakes and when Dr. Blayney finished – he had corrected more than 20,000 spelling and punctuation “mistakes” done by Robert Barker and his printing presses that produced the 1611 King James Bible.

“The Forbidden Book” leafbook is for those who want an understanding of how we got the English Bible, which is deeper and more detailed than we can provide on our website’s English Bible History page. This 110-page spiral-bound book is the full syllabus for those who attend our two-day series of eight one-hour lectures at our Bible History Symposium. It also contains a set of either three or four genuine original ancient Bible Leaves inside the book, which many people choose to remove and frame. This scholarly yet entertaining volume gives you “The Big Picture.” Featuring an expanded historical timeline and several full-color pages… this book is a wonderful addition to any Christian’s library and organized reference work that you will refer to repeatedly. The amazing story of preserving God’s Word throughout the centuries is so vividly brought to life that we think you will find it hard to put this book down. The real treasure of this package is the set of two ancient Bible Leaves. You get a page from an original King James Bible printed before 1650 and a page from a Geneva Bible printed before 1644.
