Was the King James Bible published this day?

You can get a number of search hits on the internet that will tell you that the King James Bible was published on May 2, 1611. I can find no historical record that verifies that. It appears to be tradition that has placed the publication in May, and that this specific day comes from the 400 year anniversary committee deciding on the 2nd as the official day to celebrate its anniversary. 

If anyone has more accurate information, feel free to share it.
