Item Description...
David Norton has recently re-edited the King James Bible for Cambridge University and this book arises from his intensive work on that project. He reveals here how the text of the most important Bible in the English language was made, and how it was changed by printers and editors until it became the text we know today in 1769. Using material as diverse as the manuscripts of the original translators, and the results of extensive computer collation of electronically held texts, Norton has produced a scholarly edition of the King James Bible that will restore the authority of the 1611 translation. This book includes the bible's fascinating background, Norton's editorial principles and substantial lists and tables of variant readings. It will be indispensable to scholars of the English Bible, literature, and publishing history. A website with additional resources ( will be available one month prior to publication.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
If you really want to know the detailed history of the King Jame Bible  Jan 26, 2007
Buy this book if you want to know absolutely everything there is to know about the printing history of the King James Bible. This is a textbook, and as such it will put you to sleep if you try to read it from beginning to end.

Yet, it is excellent and accessible to an intelligent and dedicated lay person. It details how the King James Bible was edited and printed in 1611, and then covers all the different variations since 1611. Yes, the King James Bible has variations! There is not just one version, but many. Finally the latter part of the book details how the author edited the New Cambridge Paragraph Bible. That was my favorite part, because I own that Bible (but not this book -- I got it on loan from the library). He justifies, quite thoroughly, the choices he made in updating the King James for modern printing. Agree or disagree with his editing, he is thorough.
A Personal Criticism  Mar 9, 2005
This is an excellent book. It is thoroughly researched, well documented and clearly written. However, I would have liked to have seen a chapter that included information regarding the Hebrew, Greek and Latin sources for the KJB. For example, what Greek documents were used by the translators? Which documents were referred to most often? How did the translators use or mis-use these manuscripts, and what part did they play in the many revisions of the KJB over the centuries? How reliable were these documents? Did the revisionists refer to the Textus Receptus, and if so, which versions of the TR did they use? Answers to questions such as these would have made "A Textual History of the King James Bible" even more interesting and informative.
