This foil-stamped King James Bible is a scaled down replica of the actual Bible used during George Washington’s inauguration in 1789, now on view in New-York Historical's Meet the Presidents Gallery. The handsome hardcover edition features beautiful illustrations and gilded edges.
The replica George Washington Bible is published by St. John’s Lodge No. 1 A.Y.M. in New York City, who have been in possession of the actual Bible since 1770. The Lodge has been producing the replicas for over 100 years. St. John's Lodge No.1 is the oldest operating Masonic Lodge under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of New York F&AM and was warranted in 1757 by the Modern Grand Lodge of England.
