Split Calfskin Leather Edition:
The Bible is bound in black calf split leather. Calf split is a superior grade to French Morocco leather, tanned to approach the quality and feel of full-grain calfskin leather. The Bible has two ribbon markers and is handsomely finished with red and gold head-and tail-bands as well as Gilt Edges.
Goatskin Leather Edition:
This special Bible, for the discerning Bible scholar, offers the much admired Concord text in a superlative flexible black goatskin leather binding, and is edge-lined with Imitation Leather (as only the best bible publishers in the world still do). It is printed on a smooth, opaque and resilient paper with Art-Gilt Edges, and includes two ribbon markers to help find the reader's place.
Both editions also include the original 1611 King James Version, "The Translators to the Reader." This preface is usually omitted from modern printings but it offers a fascinating account of how this most magnificent English translation of the ancient texts evolved.

Cambridge Leather Definitions:
Split Calfskin Leather
A superior grade to French Morocco leather, tanned to approach the quality and feel of full-grain calfskin leather.

Cambridge Bold Figure Cross-Reference System:
The Cambridge Bold Figure Cross-Reference System provides a reference Bible with a clean text for reading and an easily accessible and unambiguous system of references. There are no distracting letters or numbers in the Bible text itself.
The guides to the cross-references in this Bible take the form of bold-face numbers set on each side of the central-reference column. These indicate the verse to which the reference applies: the bold-face numbers on the left of the column refer to verses in the left-hand column of text, those on the right refer to verses in the right-hand column. A full stop separates references that apply to different parts of the same verse.
Alternative readings in the central reference column are preceded by the key word(s) of the text. Where it is necessary to abbreviate these key words, an ellipsis of three dots is used.
