Description

The video preview shows the Allan Longprimer 53 Highland Goatskin, not the Allan Longprimer 52 Meriva Calfskin Edition. The type of leather and style of yapp are different (only a semi-overlapping yapp on the Meriva Calfskin), but all of the study features and text / cross reference examples will be the same in this bible.

Quite Possibly the Finest Large Print Bible Available, this beautiful edition of the 52 Longprimer is bound in a soft Black Meriva natural grain calfskin with a generous semi-yapp cover, leather-lined in navy split calfskin, with gilt line round the inside of the case, and features double-sprayed red under gold art gilt page edges and three navy blue ribbon markers with white head and tail bands.

Revised edition includes our distinctive 8pp Presentation Page and Family Record as well as 32pp of navy feint rule Allan notepaper in addition to the dictionary of proper names, subject index, concordance and 16 pages of Oxford Bible maps.

First printed in 1952, the King James Version Longprimer Bible is a sumptuous, traditional reference setting of the Authorized Version. Developed by Oxford University Press and now published exclusively by R. L. Allan, it has for many years been our flagship Bible, renowned the world over for its clarity of type and our beautiful bindings.

Our latest Longprimer printings hark back to a vintage copy of the classic Longprimer, printed in the period 1952-1958 under Charles Batey, then Printer to the University of Oxford, returning to a page image that is much closer to the original intentions of the typesetters. This new-old page image retains the large, clear type of the Longprimer we all know and love, but has a crisper letter form and less of the broken type and 'spread' that mark out much-used letterpress typesettings subsequently transferred to film and, only more recently, to digital scans.

Printed on best quality highly opaque 36gsm India Paper * Large, crisp black letter type * 100,000 centre column chain references with dates above * Three navy ribbon markers * Red under gold page edges * 16 pages of full colour Oxford Bible maps * Concordance, subject index and dictionary of proper names * Exclusively available in Allan's fine leather bindings.

    Awesome bible

    My bible just came in yesterday after a long and anxious wait. I was so happy to open up and find the most beautiful bible I’ve ever seen. The leather feels like butter and the font is perfect! I was actually thinking that I wouldn’t like the gilded red under gold because I thought it looked funny but once I had it in my hands it looks amazing and gives it a classic look. Definitely will buy again.

    KJV Allen Longprimer 52

    Simply the finest KJV bible I own! The craftsmanship is absolutely beautiful and second to none. The concordance and subject index are thorough and uncomplicated. Worth every penny and highly recommended.

    Very Nice Bible

    Very nice bible , easy to read, love the print, even with my bifocals, I can see it well. I was under the impression, it was a red letter edition but it's not , so now I'm trying to figure out the size of print of a Cambridge turquoise goatskin KJV bible. I give you a five star. Every thing was great as expected, thank you very much.
