Kindle Bibles are works-in-progress. Verse Jump functions only on older Kindle devices (not supported on Fire by Kindle apps). Word search quirky: will sometimes crash. ( )

The Preface for this version is signed January, 1895, and no later preface was appended for the 1926 revision. This original preface refers to lists of Greek and Latin readings "adopted by the Committees". A footnote, dated 1898, states that these lists were abandoned when the author died without completing the work. Apparently it was one of those jobs no one else wanted, or perhaps was qualified to do. Though the details behind various translations and revisions of scripture are beside the point for the average reader, it is interesting to read accounts, such as this one, that illustrate how many people can be involved in such an undertaking.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521506743, Hardcover)

The KJV Apocrypha in a single volume. The Apocrypha ('hidden things') are contemporaneous with the Old Testament, but were not officially accepted as part of the Bible when the Hebrew 'canon' was set. They did, however, form part of the Greek Scriptures and came into English Bibles by that route. The writings of the Apocrypha run the whole gamut of literary genres: histories, romances, devotional works, proverbs and sermons. Many complement parts of the Old Testament and readers will recognise some familiar Biblical characters in the narratives, such as Daniel and Esther.
