Parallel Editions

Very soon after the Revised New Testament appeared in 1881 various parallel editions were published that had the new version in a parallel column with the King James Version. After the Old Testment was published in 1885, complete parallel Bibles appeared. In 1910, an "interlinear" Bible was published that showed the two texts with words in common to both versions in large letters and where the two versions differ, both were printed in smaller type; the Authorized Version on the bottom and the English Revised Version on the top.
