Translating for King James: Notes Made by a Translator of King James's Bible
Ward Allen's Translating for King James: Notes Made by a Translator of King James's Bible is a fascinating look at how the best-selling book of all time took shape and sound. The recovery of thirty-nine amazingly legible pages of John Bois's private notes reveals how a committee of scholarly translators urged and argued, bickered and shouted into being the most glorious document in the history of the English language.
