I enjoy reading the poetic, though out-dated, translation with so many beautiful illuminations!
I usually prefer to read more modern translations, but the older English of the King James Version is a perfect complement to the Renaissance-era artwork. If you like illuminated manuscripts or religious art, you'll appreciate this Bible.
The Bible is beautiful. Received it in a timely manner. I would definitely buy from this seller again. There was just one teeny thing about shipping that bothered me. They bubble wrapped the Bible but then put it in one of those white plastic envelope thingeys.
All the corners of the Bible were bent....and looking at the plastic envelope the slight damage matched up with the marked places of rough handling. I don't understand why they would ship in this manner....plastic does very little to absorb impact from
However, it is still beautiful, plus it's a first edition. So I kept this one for myself and ordered them a different one.
I just don't understand why a plastic envelope and just bubble wrap was used. Sure it protects from scratches but not from being tossed around and a small amount of damage due to rough shipping. Plastic and bubble wrap do not protect when a package is tossed around all over the place (envelope looked like it had gone to hell and back).
I would like to encourage the seller to wrap Bible or any other future book in bubble wrap then place in a box with appropriate fillers so it doesn't slide around.
Overall, I absolutely love this Bible. I can deal with some minor dings and dents on the corners and spine.
Again, very happy with my purchase and would buy from this seller again.
This bible exceeded my expectations and is probably one of the most beautiful family bibles on the market at a very reasonable price. Five stars.
