The Bay Psalm Book was the first book printed in British North America. The book is a metrical Psalter, first printed in 1640 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Psalms in it are metrical translations into English. The translations are not particularly polished, and not one has remained in use, although some of the tunes to which they were sung have survived (for instance, "Old 100th").

This up-to-date version of the universally accepted text from the King James Bible will make a handsome addition to any home. The revised translation is easily accessible for the modern reader, and is based on the original King James Version, published in 1611. In the course of time, the King James Version came to be regarded as “the Authorized Version.” It has been termed “the noblest monument of English prose,” and it has come to be of central importance to Western society as no other book. Thunder Bay’s Holy Bible is beautifully appointed and illustrated with reproductions of original fifteenth-century masterpieces, highlighting Renaissance masterpieces from the period of 1430 to 1510. Almost every page of the Holy Bible has illuminated accents, with evocative drawings throughout from the Vatican Library, and an overall design inspired by the peerless Urbino Bible of 1478. The Holy Bible is complete with beautiful pages on which to lovingly record marriages, births, baptisms, confirmations, deaths, and family trees.

This edition of the Bible is a pure joy to look at and read. It combines the great beauty of Renaissance art and bookmaking with the text of the Bible considred by many to be the finest prose in the English language, that of the King James version. The design for this edition is based on one of the mastterpieces of fifteenth-century art and bookmaking, the incomparable two-volume Latin Vulgate Bible commissioned by Federigo di Monefeltro, duke of Urino. This rare treasure was completed by the Florentine book dealer Vespasiano da Bisticci in 1478, its text having taken the scribe Ugo Comminelli of Mezieres four years to compose by hand. The numerous illustratos that grace the parchment of the Urbino Bible were handpainted by such masters as Domenico and Davide Ghirlandaio, among others.

This volume contains all of the major illustrations in the Urbino Bible and features many other artistic details from that book, such as decorative borders, column dividers, and illuminated and historiated initial capitals. The extraordinary beauty of the illustrations and text, together with an extensive section reserved for the keeping of family records, make this Bible an heirloom worthy of being passed from generation to generation.

Together with the text, the illustration will make you feel joyful, peaceful and uplifted.

I bought this for the illustrations, and they are superb, from a variety of illuminated manuscripts. Every pages has great embellishments taken from manuscripts, and there are excellent illustrations likewise from medieval and renaissance manuscripts. Highly recommended.

It's such a refreshing bible with old world illustrations and beautiful pages and cover to draw in the reader to aquire a fantastically old world charm. I recommend to everyone and see it as a collectors item for sure. brilliant.
  • Geny
If you do Catechesis of the Good Shepherd this is the perfect Bible
  • Steelrunner
The illustrations are beautiful, and I like the St. James version, but the paper is thin and book is not as sturdy as I would have liked. Would be good for everyday use and then replaced when worn out. Not one I would keep as a family "treasure".
  • Mananara

As stated " Absolutely Brand New " I guess I should have clicked on the " more " button, I didn't. I took that statement as Brand New to be Brand New, " my bad " I'll give it to the Salvation Army or a Goodwill store.
This Bible is the most beautifully illustrated Bible that I think I've ever seen. The photos you will find online don't even begin to do this book justice. I don't know why Amazon doesn't have more photos posted. Be sure to look at the ones that were posted by the customers.

It is HEAVILY illustrated with some of the most beautiful designs, calligraphy and artwork from the Italian Renaissance Period. There are over 875 illustrations- many of them were reproduced from the original artwork in the Urbino Bible of 1478 and over 30 other bibles from that time period. Every single page is illustrated with all kinds of unique designs that are not repeated over and over like they are in some Bibles.

There is a presentation page plus pages to record marriages, births, baptisms, confirmations, deaths, and family trees. The cover is not leather but it's a thick, heavy hardback which is embossed with gold foil designs all the way around and the pages are gilt edged. The pages are nice, thick, antiqued, off-white colored paper with a very slight gloss or sheen to them. The text is not large. I'd guess it's about an 8 or 9 point text size. There is one golden ribbon marker that's kind of wide and long. It's not one of those really thin, tiny markers. It's just the right size for a large book like this. There are only a few details that were overlooked: It's not a red letter text edition which I think many people would prefer and it doesn't come in a presentation gift box. Even without these 2 things, this would make a wonderful wedding or house warming gift. And at this price, it's a really affordable gift to give someone. I bought one for myself and one for my daughter and will probably buy a few more to have on hand as gifts. This was a special KJV Bible that was printed especially to commemorate this edition's 400th anniversary in 2011. It doesn't appear to still be in print so buy a couple of these if you'd like to have really amazing Bibles on hand to give as gifts when you need them. I think anyone who receives this will treasure it forever.
