Leather lined in natural grain Meriva calfskin. 

The KJV Brevier Clarendon Bible is a vintage Authorized/King James Version reference edition, developed by Oxford University Press and now published exclusively by R. L. Allan. This Wide Margin edition is particularly prized – its substantial margins and writeable paper, with the highest levels of opacity, combined with the bold, clear type of the Brevier Clarendon typesetting, make it the ideal Bible for intensive study and notetaking.

The 5WM is printed on PrimaBible 45gsm paper with superb writeability characteristics so as to maximize the benefit of the 1.5 inch outer/inner margins (1 inch at top and bottom).

Our classic 5WM edition is bound in Black natural grain goatskin with generous yapp, now leather-lined in dark blue natural grain Meriva calfskin with gilt line inside, hand-pleated corners and double-sprayed red under gold page edges, three navy blue ribbon markers, with Allan presentation pages and family record, pages of full-colour Oxford Bible maps and now with 32 pages of Allan feint rule notepaper.

Printed on best quality, writeable, highly opaque 45gsm India Paper * Large, crisp black letter type * Centre column references * 1½ inch outer and inner margins, 1 inch at top and bottom of the page * Three navy blue ribbon markers * Red under gold page edges * 16 pages of full-colour Oxford Bible maps * 32 pages Allan feint rule notepaper * Exclusively available in Allan’s fine leather bindings.

10 reviews for Allan KJV Brevier Clarendon Wide Margin, Black Goatskin Bible

    I just purchased this Bible last week and received it on Saturday. Man, it is a beauty! This is my first Allan, though I bought an Oxford many years ago that I believe was almost identical to this one in terms of size, text block, leather, etc.

    I have owned various Cambridge KJV Bibles, and I love them, but I have to say this Allan wide margin is my favorite. The physical production/quality is impeccable. I could see how some people might not be thrilled about the font size, as it’s relatively small, and the Bible does not include the Translators to the Reader, which I would like to have, but other than that you really can’t go wrong with this. It’s worth every penny to me and I will cherish it and get much use out of it through many years.

    Thanks to the Evangelical Bible folks for their fine and speedy service. The Bible was well-packaged and arrived in only 2 days.

    Purchased this for my pastor husband for Christmas, as his beloved Cambridge wide margin is losing pages now. He said this is the finest Bible he has ever seen, and he’s seen a lot. He’s so impressed he doesn’t know if he’ll mark this one up like his other Bible. Now I’m saving money to buy one for myself.

    I absolutely love this Bible. And the paper is truly amazing–the thickest, smoothest and absolute best for writing. I have had many wide-margin Bibles–Cambridge, Schuyler, NASB, but this one beats them hands down! Not only does it now bleed through, I hardly notice even any shadowing. This is my go-to Bible from here on out.

    Well all the reviews are right – this bible is stunning! But, it’s not better than my Canterbury because of the drop caps. I have the NASB Eagle, thumb indexed. It’s very nice, but the print cannot compare to this Allan! There’s NO wide margin on the market that compares to this one. If you like the KJV, like I do, then this is your WM. Otherwise unfortunately, none of the companies make one this readable in any other translations. So I’m going to write in this one and make it my #1 for notes.

    I’ve reviewed many bibles on my YouTube channel usually under the $100 range so premium’s for me are few and far between. I was recently blessed to receive a new RL Allan 5WM as a gift, all I can say is WOW! This bible is absolutely beautiful, the paper is amazing and so soft to the touch, the leather is also the same. It took me a few days but I finally made some underlines and notes in the margin what I found was a perfect bible for notes. If you use archival micron ink pens you will LOVE this paper, I now want to right even more knowing that it won’t be a horrible eye sore later. This bible melts in your hand esp once you work in the Smyth Sewn binding, yes its a heavy book block at 45gsm paper so it comes with the territory. I highly recommend this bible and the one I received has not just the blank note paper but also 16 pages of lined paper after the maps. Its a work of art, but unlike paintings you get to write all over this one guilt free…Buy it!

    Amazingly beautiful Bible!!! We purchased this for a dear friend and assistant pastor of our church and he was blown away by this gift! This will last a life time and will be passed on to their children, I’m sure. Heirloom quality. God’s Word is perfect, and this is man’s best contribution to packaging it in a Christ honoring way!

    First of all, I come from a different background than most. I was raised a JW and decided that, after investigating certain issues, I needed a Bible I could study that had no doctrinal bias. Not only does this suit my language preferences, in particular its High English, but the craftsmanship is top notch. I highly recommend this beautiful goatskin Bible to anyone. It smells great, feels great. It stays open no matter where you are speaking to God, and it helps you stay focused with the font. Granted it is a bit small, but its marginal space more than makes up for it. Thank you Evangelical Bible!

    Just wanted to say thanks to EB. I ordered this on 3/24 and it came 3/27! You guys got this shipped the next day, the Bible itself is perfect…it has changed my opinion of Jongbloed. They have done an awesome job. The paper is the thickest I have seen, the leather is also VERY thick! Feels great in the hand the print is nice and bold. THANKS!!

    This is an absolutely stunning Bible. This is the finest Bible I have ever owned – even nicer than my Schuyler Canterbury and Limited Edition Longprimer 53. The goatskin leather is thick and supportive, but still has enough flex to it to allow the Bible to comfortably flop in the hand while reading it. I cannot see a single flaw in the construction anywhere, and from what I can see, it surpasses my Longprimer 53 in the care and craftsmanship taken to produce it (not to take anything away from the beautiful 53!).

    The text is 9 point, but it is bold and uniform, making for surprisingly comfortable reading at normal viewing distance. I attempted to read it closer up, but then the boldness becomes too strong to the eye. Clearly, the designers knew what they were doing. The paper has a nice thickness to it, and is quite opaque, more so than any other Bible I have owned. The paper has a light cream color to it which helps to offset the aggressive boldness of the text.

    All in all, this is a superbly built Bible. I almost hesitate to mark it up, but this is the kind of Bible that every note, and the writing of it, will be carefully considered and undertaken before being laid down within the pages of this exquisite Bible!

    Thanks to Evangelical Bible for the FAST shipping!

    I HAVE BEEN CONVERTED! I Brian McClurg declare this Bible as The Best Bible I own to date. YES, out of all the Bible’s (in the 100s) I’ve ever owned, this is my new favorite and in my opinion, The BEST.
    ALLAN, Great Job!
    Thank you Evangelical Bible,
    Brian McClurg
