For some, the beautiful language of the King James Version of the Bible can never be surpassed, but there are those who crave to read Scripture in plain English. In light of this, the convocation of Canterbury called for a modernized revision of the English Bible in 1870, the first since the King James Version had become the standard edition. The Revised Version was released in 1881, and our leaves come from one of the many editions issued to meet the high demand for copies: between May and December 1881, more than 2,000,000 copies were sold in London, and around 400,000 in New York.
