A striking edition of our signature KJV Longprimer, the Allan 53G P is bound in Dark Green Highland goatskin with full yapp and purple under gold page edges, leather-lined in a contrasting shade of purple with double gilt lines inside and three blackberry ribbon markers. It includes presentation pages and family record in Allan’s exclusive design, along with Oxford’s dictionary of proper names, subject index, concordance, 32 pages of lined writing paper 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.

In recent years, we have reverted 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 blackberry ribbon markers * Purple under gold 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.
