Description

This beautiful improved edition of the 52 Longprimer is bound in a soft Brown Meriva natural grain calfskin (a slightly lighter shade than our usual chocolate brown) with a generous semi-yapp cover, and is now leather-lined in dark brown split calfskin, with gilt line round the inside of the case, and features double-sprayed red under gold art gilt page edges and three honey gold 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

    Received my Longprimer 52 in the mail today. This bible has truly exceeded my expectation. The calfskin leather is very soft compared to my Cambridge and Westminister Reference Bible.

    Great bible however there are differences between this and my 62 longprimer sovereign that I’ve never seen discussed. The pleated corners are more prominent on the 52. The print is substantially bolder on the 62 which makes the center column easier to read. The paper on the 52 is off white/cream colored where the 62 is very white. The New Testament title page is slightly different as well. Overall this bible still deserves five stars but the sovereign is an improvement in my opinion.

    This is by far the nicest Bible I have ever owned. I just purchased this from EB in February 2018. The leather binding is the softest, most supple, most limp binding I have ever held. Smooth grain, and the leather smell is great. The paper is think and opaque, almost no ghosting. The font is crisp and dark, and great to read. The gilting is amazing, and the gold ribbons with the brown leather binding is a great combo. Added bonus is the great concordance, list of proper names, and great maps and not taking paper in the back. This is definitely worth the money.

    Also, EB is great to order from. Easy, responsive, and fast shipping in the US.
