The King James Bible in Quarto

The Holy Bible, Conteyning the Old Testament and the New.
London: Robert Barker, 1612. (Prothro B-62/A)

A rare surviving example of the first quarto edition of the Kings James Bible, this printing was intended for personal instead of ecclesiastical use. It dispenses with the ceremonial “black-letter” type of the folio edition in favor of highly legible Roman type.
