The Gospel According to Mark: Authorized King James Version
Canongate U.S., 1999 - Bibles - 50 pages
The publication of the King James version of the Bible, translated between 1603 and 1611, coincided with an extraordinary flowering of English literature and is universally acknowledged as the greatest influence on English-language literature in history. Now, world-class literary writers introduce the book of the King James Bible in a series of beautifully designed, small-format volumes. The introducers' passionate, provocative, and personal engagements with the spirituality and the language of the text make the Bible come alive as a stunning work of literature and remind us of its overwhelming contemporary relevance.

The King James Bible was an adequate translation for its day. However, it was based on more recent manuscripts with a 1,000 years of textual errors, spurious additions, and outright mistakes.
I would prefer reading the Gospel of Mark in The older RSV version or the God's Word Translation.
The NIV 2011 version is excellent as well.
