Brief Description

[Printed in Cambridge, England] Often called the “Cambridge Standard Edition,” this copy represents the thorough revision of the King James undertaken by Dr. F. S. Parris, scholar at the University of Cambridge. Though carefully done and influential in the making of the King James version of today, the 1762 edition became foundational to the 1769 Blayney “Oxford Standard Edition,” which is the edition of the King James version that most people read today when acquiring a King James Bible. Copies of the 1762 Parris Bible are extremely rare because most copies were burned in a fire before they could be circulated. The Parris and Blayney versions together set the standard for the modern Bibles of today.
