The KJV, Standard edition

What shall we call this most prestigious of English Bible translations?  In the title of his 2004 book about its textual history, David Norton refers to it as the King James Bible.  However, the next year, on the cover of his New Cambridge Paragraph Bible, it is referred to as the King James Version.  For the sake of consistency, I will call it the KJV.

What shall we call the version of the text most commonly found in KJV Bibles?  Norton seems to use four words almost interchangeably: Current, Established, Received and Standard.  I will refer to it as the Standard edition.
