New colourway in improved 2019 edition. Now leather lined in matching Meriva natural grain calfskin.

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.

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 Dark Brown Meriva calfskin with generous semi-yapp and red under gold page edges, now leather-lined in matching dark brown Meriva with gilt line inside, 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.

    This Bible is incredible! I’m actually struggling what to write, not because any part of this purchase was a let down, but I’m not sure how I am able to describe this 62 Longprimer Sovereign in the brown mariva calfskin, and do it justice. First let me say, the customer service at Evangelical Bible is the best in the industry. If a company wants to succeed, they should model this company’s standard. As a guy who will drive across town during rush hour for ‘good’ customer service, they set a very high bar others should model in the exceptional catagory. In regards to this purchase, I selected the $5.00 upgrade in shipping, which indicates FedEx 2-3 day delievery, I received it the next day. The Bible itself is gorgeous and I have discovered, I highly prefer smooth calfskin (as long as it is pliable with a leather liner) over any of the goatskins I have purchased to date. This cover is incredibly soft, pliable, floppy and in my opion, the nicest cover in my collection. KJV was not my go to version, but I cannot resist picking up this Bible and reading, so the KJV is quickly moving up the list of my desired translations. Ample room for notes in the margins, but no way will I be able to mark in this Bible. The paper is unlike any other I have purchased. Heavy is how I would describe, but still easily turned and I’m really liking it. I believe it’s 38 gsm? It’s different but very nice. The font is very easy to read and could easily be a preaching Bible for someone trying to fill that niche. I could go on, but will sum up saying, well done EVB for your company’s high standards and thank you RL Allan for the most beautiful Bible I’ve encountered.

    For those of you who don’t have the time to view my excellent and riveting 45 minute video “Unboxing the Allan KJV 62 Longprimer Sovereign, Brown Meriva Calfskin”, let me just say that I concur with bhmtnbiker’s observations as to the super soft and pliable calfskin cover. I would also add that it is the most readable Bible that I have ever seen as a result of its’ generous and bold font along with outstanding paper which is extremely opaque. Not sure how Allan could have improved on this one!

    Truly, the Allan KJV 62 LONGPRIMER SOVEREIGN, BROWN MERIVA CALFSKIN BIBLE is one of best Bibles that Allan has ever published. Yes, the calfskin is beautiful with a smooth, soft, & sturdy feel, yes, the Bible is easy to read, yes, the Bible has excellent helps for a study Bible, I prefer this Bible over my Schulyer Goatskin Bible because the concordance is more extensive and easy to read; this comes in handy when I’m looking for a particular verse. Kudos to the staff at EBC whom always are courteous and professional!
