Brief Description

[Original leaves] These loose leaves are from a first large folio edition of the King James Version published in 16ll. Five include the following texts: Genesis 43:28 to 44:20; Ezekiel 36:25 to 37:11; Matthew 7:17 to 8:17; II Thessalonians 1:1 to 2:5; and Hebrews 9:13 to 10:11. A sixth framed leaf includes the text from II Kings 11. A seventh leaf, containing John 10:37 to 12:36, is included in the Royal Monument of English Literature: the King James Bible, 1611-2011.

Context

These pages from first editions of the King James Bible are taken from editions or fragments which could not be sold as complete Bibles, because they were already missing pages when found. These fragment sections and pages are often used by restorers to put together complete Bibles that were not complete when discovered. The pages that are left over from the restoration process are often sold by the page. These pages are not the result of the destruction of complete Bibles.
