This user page is for collating information about Benjamin Blayney's 1769 Oxford Edition of the King James Bible.

Original Bibles

A scanned copy of the 1769 KJV is available at http://www.originalbibles.com/1769-king-james-bible-benjamin-blayney/

Currently this is only for the books Genesis to Jeremiah.

Pilcrows

In the original 1611 edition, even the book titles had a Pilcrow!
