The KJV Turquoise Reference Bible was created in the 1920s and has stood as a superb and well-loved example of classic Cambridge typographic design for ninety years. The text is presented in a large, bold, traditional typeface with cross-references, and the words of Christ are printed in red. The concordance has been freshly typeset for this edition, which also includes a map section and the Translators' Preface - their compelling account of the principles underlying the publication of the KJV in 1611. This Bible is a masterpiece of Cambridge craftsmanship. It is printed on fine India paper and is fully sewn, allowing it to lie flat when in use and adding extra durability. The large format, superior materials and manufacturing excellence make this a perfect family, desk or presentation Bible for Christian ministry.
Large Print, Center-Column References, Premium Leather:
Make no mistake, the combination of a Large Print 11 Point Font, Center-Column References, and Ultra-Premium Leather is a rare find amongst King James Version Bibles. Along with the Allan Longprimer, the KJV Turquoise Reference Bible from Cambridge is one of the only KJV Bibles on the market to combine these 3 unique features. Most large or giant print bibles will have "End of Verse" references, instead of the traditional "Center-Column" references found in the Cambridge Turquoise. That's just one of the ways that Cambridge "got it right" in the 1920's, and we are fortunate to have this superb Turquoise Edition available once more.
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 head-and tail-bands as well as Gilt Edges.

The Turquoise Edition is Back!
The formerly Out of Print "Turquoise" edition from Cambridge was re-released as the "Presentation Reference Edition" around 2006 and then went right back Out of Print only a few short years later. Since that time, countless KJV Bible customers have sought after the "Turquoise" Edition. So much so in fact that it inspired this informative article: WHY CAMBRIDGE SHOULD BRING BACK THE TURQUOISE KJV
