"Even though I would configure this bible somewhat differently, I still cannot give this less than 5 stars.
I own many bibles and until now have underestimated the value of having a bible with such clean text that reads so well. The more readable the text is, the less effort and concentration is needed for comprehension. The self-pronunciation feature is very useful.
Everything said about the craftsmanship by the others is true, even the ruled pages in the back are gilded. It is a large bible, but the pages flip easily and do not stick together, even right out of the box. The goatskin is flexible and the bible lays flat.
I would trade some of the ruled pages for a subject index and proper names in the concordance. Also, the references are just OK and I'd prefer the set of cross-references from other bibles that I own.
If you are trying to decide between this on and the Cambridge Cameo, the Cameo does not have room in the inner margin, nor does it have the bold reference system (text is not as clean). However, the Concord is a large bible, so there are trade-offs.
In my opinion, the Cambridge Concord Wide Margin in Goatskin KWM266 is the nicest KJV money can buy, short of some of the custom binders (e.g. Allan and so on)"
"This is a wide margin version of the most excellent Concord edition from Cambridge. In addition to having generous and proportionally sized margines this bible is also printed on a somewhat thicker and better paper than the "regular" Concord. The font, though about 10% smaller than in Concord is still extremely legible and clear - a pleasure to read. Center column reference system in this edition is excellent and much easier to use than center column references found in other bibles. The goat skin binding is great too. If you are looking for a quality KJV wide margin bible and can afford the price - look no further."
