Editions of the Apocrypha

Editions of the Apocrypha

The Apocrypha was originally included in the King James Version in 1611. The first edition of the King James Version without the Apocrypha was published in 1666. In 1826 the British and Foreign Bible voted to stop funding and printing the Apocrypha and they were removed by the Archbishop of Canterbury in 1885. This page aims to show the various editions of the KJV Apocrypha that have been published over the years.
