'Never be bettered' - What C H Spurgeon thought of the Authorised Version

In a sermon on the last words of Christ on the cross preached at the Metropolitan Tabernacle on Lord's day evening 25th June 1882 and found in Volume 45 of his sermons number 1644 C H Spurgeon makes a telling comment about the Authorised Version:
I would quote John Bunyan as an instance of what I mean. Ideal anything of his, and you will see that it is almost like reading the Bible itself. He had studied our Authorized Version, which will never be bettered, as I judge, till Christ shall come; he had read it till his very soul was saturated with Scripture; and, though his writings are charmingly full of poetry, yet he cannot give us his Pilgrim’s Progress — that sweetest of all prose poems — without continually making us feel and say, “Why, this man is a living Bible!”

The quotation can be read in its immediate context below:
