NEW for 2023

Black Silver Line edition with silver embossing and blue-under-silver page edges.

This beautiful edition of the 52 Longprimer is bound in a soft Black Meriva natural grain calfskin with a generous semi-yapp cover, leather-lined in navy split calfskin, with silver gilt line round the inside of the case, and features double-sprayed blue-under-silver art gilt page edges and three silver grey ribbon markers with white head and tail bands.

The 52 Longprimer edition includes our distinctive 8pp Presentation Page and Family Record as well as 32pp of navy feint rule Allan notepaper in addition to the 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 printings hark 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.

Printed on best quality highly opaque 36gsm India Paper * Large, crisp black letter type * 100,000 centre column chain references with dates above * Three silver grey ribbon markers * Blue under silver page edges * 16 pages of full colour Oxford Bible maps * Concordance, subject index and dictionary of proper names * Exclusively available in Allan’s fine leather bindings.

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

Spine width: 1 1/2 inch thick (40mm)

Type size: 10/11pt bold print

1 review for Allan KJV 52 Longprimer Black Meriva Calfskin Silver Line – Leather-lined

  1. Daniel (verified owner)

    Highly recommended Bible of exquisite quality and value. This Meriva Calfskin Bible is my second Oxford “Longprimer” Allan KJV Bible sold by The leather binding, Bible paper, historical Longprimer print font and page layout, and all other features of this Bible are of the finest quality available today. I am completely satisfied with this fine Bible. Only a Schuyler Bible or a Cambridge Bible can compare in quality. (And all of these are printed, bound, and published in the USA / Europe.)
