Who Has The Oldest Bible? Hi this should be fun. I like most of you have several Bibles in different versions. I came across several boxes of books (A testimony story for another time) that were almost exclusively Christian books of one form or another. To me it was like finding the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. One of the many that really stands out is a somewhat small leather bound KJV that has a most unusual (to me) introductory page. I can’t take the time to type it out (I’m going to go Google the first few sentences and see if something pops up) here is a link ( http://www.mb-soft.com/believe/txh/kjavpref.htm ) as it’s too long to cut and paste here. Anyway they call King James a prince! Must not have earned his crown when this was written? This little leather book calls this page “The Epistle Dedicatory”. I now know the difference (I think) in a KJV and an authorized KJV. My authorized KJV doesn't have the King James preamble. Anyhow all the Psalms and all the Book chapters are in Roman Numerals and none of the pages have any numbers! honestly! I can hear some old preacher of yore…Now turn to Matthew chapter twenty-four on page …page…page…? Hahhaha. It was driving me nuts trying to find out how old this little Bible was. But I think I’ve got it. I think it was published around or about 1863! I found this sandwiched on the introductory page of the NT at the bottom where it says LONDON: PRINTED BY G.E. EYRE AND W. SPOTTISWOODE PRINTERS TO THE QUEENS MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY MLDCCCLXI I’d sure appreciate it if somebody else would verify that Roman Numeral as reading 1863. I’ll try and find time to take and post some pictures. But in the mean time I was wondering if there are others out there with similar Holy Bibles that would care to share the age of their Old Holy Bible. With pictures too please! Even if this isn’t as old as I think it might be. It’s still really cool with no page numbers and it also has the Psalms In Metre . Something I was unaware of till I was led to this book. Also this small little Bibles leather cover is really cool as it is somehow embossed with a somewhat intricate design and the words Holy Bible on the front and the spine. But their not printed on, their embossed into the leather! That’s really cool too!
