1611 KJV Replica on E-bay

Postby MPaul » Sat Aug 06, 2011 7:04 pm

As 2011 is the 400th anniversay of the King James Bible, a very beautiful replica has been made, with prices as high as $1495, or as low as $179. Here is the link, and note the video on the reproduction. Note this is with a Gothic font. This is the real thing as a fake.


However, just now, someone has the $179 version on sale at e-bay, with bidding starting at ninety-nine cents.


Hmm... now is not a good time for me to bid. The auction ends tomorrow.

However, here is another deal that does not cost anything. I remember when Beyond What is Written: Erasmus and Beza as Conjectural Critics of the New Testament by Jan Krans came out. I checked it out at the library, as it cost $200 new. I thought I would buy a used copy later. But the used volumes went up in price, as high as $350 at this time. This is a fascinating look at Erasmus' annotations on the Greek text. The conclusions may not be something we would agree with, especially considering the publisher, but any look at Erasmus' notes makes it obvious that he was a great text critic. Of course, the main criticism of Erasmus is, that he did not know about text families. But then, it is just covered over by modern critics that there is no real evidence of text families, and after 130 years, this positon is still just all theory. And then, he seems to have known more about manuscript divisions than he is given credit for, but the lying about him is voluminous.

However, Beyond What Is Written is also a review of Beza as a text critic. I have not looked at that part yet. Of course, one of the lies about Erasmus is, that his first edition of the Greek Text is the Textus Receptus and what the King James translators relied on. Actually, the translators had access to the many, many revisions which followed and relied on Beza's the most; but in reality, they were their own text critics, which is what the Scrivener version is all about.

At any rate, here is a free pdf download of Beyond What Is Written.

Oh my gosh! Someone is selling this 1611 replica on e-bay for $10.02, including shipping and handling. The bidding on the other one has already gone to $10 and there is another $4 for S & H.

Here is the link, more than 10 available.


And I did buy one.

Here is a link to a first edition 1611 King James for $139,000. That does sound very cheap, but actually this has been rebound, with many pages repaired, and missing pages replaced with facsimiles. Hmm.. there are probably enough original pages left, which could be sold individually for a lot of money, making quite a profit. Note the facsimile pages from the replica bible publishers sell for $295 each. I'm sure coupons would apply to this sale on e-bay and the shipping is free. Here is the link.
