==Later History==
==Revised Version Today==
The American Standard was the bases for many revisions in the first hundred years after it was released. The RV itself as never been the bases for any revision except for the American Standard and the Apocrypha in the [[Revised Standard Version]].
As the Revised Version is out of copyright worldwide, it is widely available online and in digital formats although it is significantly less popular than the KJV or the ASV in this manner. However, it is not widely available in published form today with only Cambridge University Press publishing it in the form of a KJV/RV interlinear.
