The hinged brown box is what you see on the Amazon illustration. Only the box, which is printed in China, says 400th Anniversary Edition.
The bible itself is printed in Columbia. And here is the rub.
Nothing in the Bible identifies it a special 400th Anniversary Edition. If you threw away the rather flimsy box, this is a normal 35th reprint of the 1988 Study Bible. Nothing on the spine(nice raised bands) or the title pages identify it as a 400th Anniversary edition. In fact it was printed in 2009, which was not close to the 400th year.
You will be paying nearly double for the same bible which has had comments for its substandard workmanship. See reviews under "King James Study Bible" from Thomas Nelson. It is the same one. The pages are glued, and not stitched or sewn. The gutter is very narrow and the bible does not open up flat. The two ribbons over 1Kings and John are symmetrical around the centre, and this reflects the amount of supplementary material at the back of the bible.
There is a very thin booklet on the 400th Anniversary in the 400th Anniversary BOX, but as I said, it is the same study bible. The bible did not have an additional gold stamping on its cover or spine proclaiming it to be a commemorative edition. The bible itself did not have anything at all on the flyleaf, title page, or anywhere else to indicate it was meant to be a 400th Anniversary edition.
I have nothing but praise for the excellent written commentary, and God forbid that I critique the text. I have written to Thomas Nelson for their comments, and if they do reply, I will add their remarks to this review.Read more ›
For those who are fearful that this Bible is a "counterfeit," I can tell you that it reads exactly the same as my Old Scofield, King James Version. It's no different. The church where I worship only uses the Authorized King James Version and does not accept any other version, and certainly no counterfeits. My husband and my pastor both like my Bible so much that they have requested a copy of their own.
The Bible is a spiritual book. If you are lost and trying to understand it, you will see little more than some genealogy and many accounts of the lives of men and women of God that seem to have little importance to you, and often worded in an odd fashion. I know because I've read it on occasion when I was lost. If you are saved, and bought by the blood of Jesus Christ, and you have a desire to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord, then the Lord reveals many things unto you you never understood before. You realize that it wasn't the King James version keeping you from being a Christian,but rather your heart.
The newer translations, even the NIV have removed many words. I feel those words are there for a reason. Besides, the KJV has been saving souls for 400 years, that's good enough for me.
-Red Letter: All the words of Jesus Christ are in red.
-Type face (font):
It's the classic "Times New Roman" font. You can't go wrong with that style of lettering as it was designed to be the easiest to read. The size of the letters are 10 point.
This bible just spells names as if you already know how to pronounce them. I like that. When I was younger, I had a KJV that would type all names as they were pronounced (ie- with dots between syllables, lines over the vowels etc) and I remember how I would lose focus of the story getting stuck on pronouncing the name.Read more ›

Although This edition I think is excellent, was printed in 2011. That is the only thing that would make it a "Anniversary Edition"
