Abstract: This image is from a collection created by Etta Hanson and given to the College in 1954. All items are from Otto Ege's estate. The leaf was contained and mounted in a mat created by Otto Ege, as were all other leaves in this collection. There is a typed description at the bottom of the mat, which reads: "Imprinted at London by Robert Barker, Printer to the Kings most Excellent Maiestie. This Bible, known as the “Authorized Version,” has been given the tribute of being “the noblest book in the English language.” It represents the world of fifty committee members, and was seen throughout the press by Miles Smith and Thomas Bilson. This version soon displaced all others, and for over three hundred years was without a rival. The name “She” Bible is applied to the second issue, from which this leaf is taken, because of the reading in Ruth iii. 15, '…she went into the city.'"
