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.
The new Longprimer Sovereign edition retains the same clear, bold type as the standard Longprimer but is printed on a 38gsm writable Bible paper with the highest levels of opacity, and increased margins (one inch on outside and bottom edges) to show the text block off to greatest effect and further enhance the reading experience.
This Silver Line edition has blue under silver page edges, silver embossing on front and spine and around the inside of the case, and silver ribbons.
Navy Blue Highland goatskin with full yapp and BLUE under SILVER page edges, leather-lined in dark blue with double SILVER gilt lines inside, three SILVER ribbon markers, with presentation pages and family record in new improved design, dictionary of proper names, subject index, concordance, 32 pages lined writing paper and 16 pages of Oxford Bible maps.
