Many of the early settlers in America from England came seeking religious freedom. The Pilgrims arrived in 1620 and brought with them the Geneva Bible, not the King James Bible. The KJV was seen as the Bible of the English King and the state Church of England which had been persecuting them. But by the mid-1600s, the King James Bible was arriving in the New World with the increasing flow of settlers. However, the first Bibles printed in America were not English Bibles. The very first was John Eliot's Algonquin Indian language Bible which was printed in 1663. The first Bible printed in America in a European language was Luther's German translation, printed in 1743. It was much later in the colonial period, in 1782, when the first complete King James Bible was printed in America. Prior to that time, English Bibles were readily available as imports from England and the English Crown owned the "copyright" on the printing of the King James Version. With the coming of the Revolutionary War, the importation of British goods was seriously curtailed, so Robert Aitken, who had started printing the King James New Testament in the Colonies in 1771, gained the support from the United States Congress to print the entire King James Bible, which he did in 1782. His Bible became known as the "Bible of the Revolution," because it was printed in a small size so copies could be distributed to the soldiers in the Colonial army. Late in the 18th century, other printers began publishing the complete King James Bible. Isaac Collins printed his Bible in 1791; the Collins Bible became known as the first "Family Bible" printed in America. Isaiah Thomas published the first illustrated King James Bible in 1791. And John Thompson in 1798 produced the first King James Bible to be hot-pressed in America. This printing technique helped to sear the ink clearly into the paper with heat. Thompson's Bible was a large pulpit folio, the largest Bible printed in America up until that time. As the new United States of America moved into the 19th century, many new milestones of Bible printing would follow.
