CBC Manitoba - University's Bible discovered to be rare first edition

CBC Manitoba - University's Bible discovered to be rare first edition: "Scholars have discovered an old Bible in the University of Manitoba's archives is a rare first edition, first printing of the King James Bible.

'We had hoped that it was going to be a first editing, first printing, but we couldn't confirm it until now,' said Dr. Shelley Sweeney, head of archives at the University of Manitoba Libraries.

'It's just amazing that something printed 400 years ago in England, it's the most popular book in on earth, essentially, more than 1 billion in print, and here is the first edition, first copy."
