The Old Testament consists of many distinct books by various authors produced over a period of centuries. Christians traditionally divide the Old Testament into four sections: The first five books of the Jewish Bible; Books telling the history of the Israelites, from their conquest of Canaan to their defeat and exile in Babylon; The "Wisdom books" dealing with questions of good and evil in the world; and the books of the biblical prophets, warning of the consequences of turning away from God.

The King James Bible is an English translation of the Christian Bible for the Church of England, completed in 1611 under the sponsorship of James VI. Noted for its "majesty of style", the King James Bible has been described as one of the most important books in English culture and a driving force in the shaping of the English-speaking world. With the development of stereotype printing at the beginning of the 19th century, the King James Bible became the most widely printed book in history.

This cloth-bound book includes a Victorian inspired dust-jacket, and is limited to 100 copies.
