Classic Reprints, an imprint of Vance Publications, reprints old and rare books and journal articles that are considered profitable for scholarly research. Most of the works selected for reprint are from the nineteenth century, and have therefore been out of print for many years. All books and articles are digitally reproduced "as is"-- nothing has been altered or updated. The reader should note, however, that the quality of the finished copy ultimately depends on the quality of the original, which in some cases is a well-worn book or journal or a microfilm copy of the same. The opinions expressed by each individual author are not necessarily those of Vance Publications. All books are reproduced one original page per page (not two pages sideways) in a slightly enlarged 8.5 x 11 size. Books over 250 pages are bound with a hardcover binding and endsheets. Books under 250 pages are bound with a plastic comb binding. Either way, the title and author of the book appear on the spine.

Notes on the Amended English Bible With Special Reference to Certain Texts in the Revised Version of the Old and New Testaments Bearing upon the Principles of Unitarian Christianity
Henry Ierson

1887
188 pages
$20.00

Originally published by the British and Foreign Unitarian Association, this book was written after the publication of the Revised Version (1885) to show how the corrections to the Authorized Version found in the Revised Version are in line with the principles of Unitarianism. Although written by a Unitarian, and written in favor of the Revised Version, this book is actually an indictment of modern versions of the Bible since they for the most part follow the readings of the Revised Version.
