Earliest draft of King James Bible found in Cambridge

The Daily Telegraph today reports that an American scholar has found the earliest draft of the King James Bible, hidden in a notebook, in a collection of papers in a Cambridge College. The notebook belonged to Samuel Ward, who served as the Sidney Sussex College’s master, after working as one of seven men in Cambridge who translated disputed passages for the King James Bible.
