Apart from the 1611 folio editio princepts, this fragment is the only Black Letter edition that comes close to representing the FIRST PRINTING “He” issue of the King James Bible [containing the “he” error in Ruth 3:15 and may other first readings], and the LAST edition ever to do so.

This 1613 “He” variant “fragment” of a celebrated edition of the King James Bible shows the original state of the text, as close as possible to the first 1611 folio “He” edition. A complete edition in the same condition would sell for about $4500.
