Technically speaking the 1611 is the Authorized Version, however, unless you like reading Gothic print (as I read a 1611 for a year, which I don't suggest) the one that I recommended is a 1873. The reason why its is because the 1611 was the first printing of the King James Bible. The changes in the text throughout 300 years is almost in every single case spelling updates (Fear is no longer spelled feare, and Jesus is no longer spelled Iesus, and no more do 'v's look like 'u's, nor do 's' look like 'f's.
