KING JAMES BIBLE “HE” VERSION

Publication Date: 1611

First Edition, First Printing King James Bible. Two editions of the Bible are recognized as having been produced in 1611. They are known as the "He" and "She" Bibles. They are distinguished by their rendering of Ruth 3:15; the first edition reading "he went into the city", where the second reads "she went into the city." However, Bibles in all the early editions were made up using sheets originating from several printers, and consequently there is very considerable variation within any one edition. There are fewer than two hundred of the original printings of 1611 "He" Bible known to exist of today. #1063
