First printed in 1952, the King James Version Longprimer Bible is a traditional double-column 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 Longprimer Sovereign edition retains the same clear, bold type as the standard Longprimer but is printed on a 40gsm writable Bible paper with the highest levels of opacity, and increased margins (one inch on outside edges) to show the text block off to greatest effect and further enhance the reading experience.

    Just received my first 62 Longprimer Sovereign Bible. It’s a beauty. It has a hefty feel and falls open nicely. Print is outstanding, along with thicker paper than most Bibles. I love the silver line edition. One thing I like to mention: while the Meriva Calfskin is supple and luxurious, it does not have the grain pattern (pebble) as does the goatskin. This does not detract from the Bible; but please know if you are considering spending this amount of money, the texture is much smoother than goatskin and, in my opinion, will show more wear from usage. It’s certainly a nice addition to my collection. Allan did a great job designing this one. I’ve purchased several Bibles from EB and have been incredibly pleased with their customer service and super fast shipping. Highly recommended!!
