The KJV Concord Wide Margin Edition is extremely popular with KJV scholars. It features wide margins all around the text for verse-by-verse annotations, as well as cross-references, a glossary, concordance, 15 color maps and the Translators' Preface. The Bible text features pronunciation marks and has the distinctive Cambridge bold-figure cross-references. The paper is slightly heavier than in the regular Concord to allow for note-taking.
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 black 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. This beloved "Preacher's" Bible will accommodate the most particular studier of God's Word, and is one of our favorite wide margin selections.

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.
A superlative flexible black goatskin leather binding, edge-lined with Imitation Leather made of only the most resilient, top-quality, natural grain leather that is only used in the finest bindings.
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.
