Description

This beautiful improved edition of the 52 Longprimer is bound in a soft Black Meriva natural grain calfskin with a generous semi-yapp cover, and is now 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.

This revised edition now includes our distinctive 8pp Presentation Page and Family Recordas well as 32pp of navy feint rule Allan notepaper in addition to the usual 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 printing harks 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.

Page size: 8 3/4 x 6 inches (221 x 150mm)

Spine width: 1 1/4 inch thick

    This is a review of the Allan KJV Longprimer Bible with the Black Meriva Calfskin leather lined Cover.

    I ordered this Bible directly from Allan. Because I didn’t see it available locally. I ordered it about March 10, 2017 and I had it in a week I was expecting longer. It is the Meriva Calfskin with the leather lining. The cover is very, very supple. I can’t compare it to the Longprimer with the Highland Goatskin because I have never handled one. The Calfsking is more supple than the binding itself, but I think that will soften with use.

    I have been using a Cambridge split calfskin, Concord Reference Bible. My first impression is the Allan is slightly larger it’s 1/2″ longer 1/4″ wider and 1/4″ thicker and a little heavier. The text is different but each is as readable as the other. Although I find the references in the Allan a little more difficult to see, especially the numbered references. I am a fan of Red letter bibles but I think I can live without.

    My apologies to Evangelical Bible.com but the day I ordered my Allan it was not yet offered in the EBC website. After I received it I checked back and it was listed. This is a very, very nice Bible and even without seeing the Goatskin version I think this will satisfy even the most discriminating buyer.

    What is Allan doing!?
    Well, Great is what sums up the latest release of the 52 Longprimer. This absolutely beautiful soft and smooth Meriva Calfskin along with the Calfsplit liner shouts perfection! This Bible is wonderfully crafted with absolute attention and detail. This is not only Gorgeous but, surprisingly very affordable. I can’t say anything negative, for it speaks volumes for itself and if there were an extra star to rate it, I’d undoubtedly give it that.
    Thank you Allan and Son’s & Evangelical Bible for this great edition to the KJB family.

    Although I did not buy this Bible from EVBible, I wanted to leave a review here. This Meriva Calfskin is amazing. If you are like me and have several Goatskin Allan Bibles, then one of these Bibles should also be in your collection. When I first got this, I couldn’t stop picking it up just to feel it!

    As for the internals, this printing is excellent. I love the paper, and the font is clean and crisp. There is little bleed through.

    This is not a full yapp like a 53 or 63, but is similar to the ESV NC1, for example.

    This one is bound my Jongbloed, and the workmanship is excellent. The corners are well done, and the art-gilting is a darker red and closer to what you would normally get from a London bound Allan.

    This is truly one of my favorite Bibles. You will not be dissapointed.

    Received my Bible Saturday just two days after ordering it. I wanted the goatskin 53 but all I can say is wow. This bible is not anything lacking. The text block is very readable and although the yapp is not as pronounced as the 53, it is just as nice. What is important is the Word of God that are inside. If you are looking for a great bible that is easy to read and will last you for years do not hesitate with this one. Great Job Allan and Evangelical bible for providing us with the hunger for the word.
