King’s receives Pennyroyal Caxton Bible (12/08/2014)

The College has been the recipient of the limited edition Pennyroyal Caxton Bible, printed in 1999 by the Pennyroyal Caxton Press.

The Bible, which is rare in the UK with a only a small number of recorded copies, was gifted to King’s by the Kovner Philanthropy Foundation, based in New York, ‘in recognition of the academic studies of King’s College London and the aesthetic and scholarly standards of the Maughan Library and, in particular, the Foyle Special Collections Library.’

Printed in Massachusetts, the deluxe edition of The King James Version of the Holy Bible is the first Bible in one hundred years to be fully illustrated by a single living artist.
