Holy Bible Improved Edition 7-7-2020
Baptist Publication and Bible Union
The American Bible Union formed with a view of revising the King James Version and published a New Testament in 1862-1864. Some revision work was also done on the Old Testament after 1865 though not published as a complete work. The Bible Union dissolved and turned its assets over to The American Baptist Publication Society in 1883, which later picked up the work and published a revision of the New Testament in 1891 and an Old and New Testament in 1912, with some further revisions, under the title: "Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments, An Improved Edition (Based in part on the Bible Union Version)", reprinted in 1913. It mentions recently available manuscripts (which would be Sinaiticus and Vaticanus and others) but appears to follow the Textus Receptus in general. It is one of the last to include the whole Bible and be available now in the public domain. It is quite literal and retains the distinction between 'thee' and 'you'. Notes display on mouseover.
