Description: A black leather-bound holy bible. It is the King James version. It was published by Charles Courtier and Sons, London, England.

The King James Bible, as known in the United States, is an English translation of the Christian Bible that began in 1604; it was first published in 1611 by the Church of England. Although the bible is referred to 'King James Version', he did not personally translate the Bible. Instead, King James' advance authorization was needed in order for the Church of England to translate, publish and distribute the Bible in England.
