NCR Microform Bible



This original 1968 news photo -- from the Wonders of the Bible Collection -- shows CBS news anchor Walter Cronkite holding a microform transparency of the entire King James Bible. It contains 1,245 pages and more than 700,000 words. This new technology was called "micro optics", and was produced by NCR: National Cash Register. A stack of these microform Bibles flew to, and landed on the moon by Apollo astronauts. We have one of these, and many similar ones, in the Wonder of the Bible collection. Visit our FACEBOOK page.
