Pictures of this Bible

This sumptuous calfskin edition of the Longprimer Sovereign is bound in black Meriva natural grain calfskin, and leather-lined in navy blue Meriva.

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 38gsm 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.

Bound in Black Meriva calfskin with generous semi-yapp and red under gold page edges, leather-lined in dark navy Meriva with gilt line inside and three wide ribbon markers, with presentation pages and family record, dictionary of proper names, subject index, concordance, 32 pages lined writing paper and 16 pages of Oxford Bible maps.

Printed on best quality, highly opaque 38gsm writable India Paper * Large, bold, black letter type * 100,000 centre column chain references with dates above * Three navy blue ribbon markers * Red 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.

    ordered my first Allan delivery is Saturday I can hardly wait

  2. Emily

    Great Bible… Highly recommend. I would give more stars if possible. I’ve had this one for over 2 years. I’ve done extensive studying in it and spent many hours and long nights with it open. It is still in very good condition. The leather has very little wear. I have many bibles, but this one exceeds them all. You will not be disappointed if you buy it. I also have a smaller ESV goatskin from Allan as well, and I would also give it 5 stars.

    Everything about this bible is awesome. The best bible I own. I’ll probably get another when the highland goatskin edition becomes available again.
