|Another 1917 thing...|
It *is* rather difficult to read, but even I have a quasi-nostalgic relationship to it, since I tried to read parts of it already in elementary school. I went straight for Revelation, and draw the conclusion that whoever wrote this stuff must have been pretty damn insane! OK, a secularized kid's opinion, ha ha.
Interestingly, the 1917 edition doesn't contain the Apocrypha, despite the Church of Sweden being Lutheran. This was apparently a nod to the “free churches”, the independent Protestant denominations, which usually don't include them in their Bibles. The Apocrypha were published as a separate volume, in 1922 I think.
Once upon a time, Bibles like this one were readily available all over the country, but these days, I think you have to go to a used book store to get a copy. (I did.) Or buy them through that quirky American vendor, Amazing Amazon. Incidentally, the other customer review is in Swedish!
