On a slightly different topic, I, myself use the 1611, but members here say that there are several copyist errors and that using one for one's own study is counterproductive.
Can you explain this to me?
The 1611 edition contained various typesetting errors that have been purified out over the years in subsequent editions. We refer to the AV of 1611 because that was when it was first published, but it is very rare that anyone uses a 1611 edition today. Since 1611 English has had its spelling and grammar standardized so our current KJV Bibles are much better suited for use.

If you have a 1611 edition, the first two verses of your Bible would read like this:
Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning God created the Heauen, and the Earth. And the earth was without forme, and voyd, and darkenesse was vpon the face of the deepe: and the Spirit of God mooued vpon the face of the waters.
