Product Details

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 Navy Blue Meriva calfskin in a striking French Navy shade, with generous semi-yapp and red under gold page edges, now leather-lined in dark navy blue 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.

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 crimson red 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.

    What an excellent crafted KJV Bible a work of art! I am absolutely stunned by the beauty of this Bible. I was afraid the size would be unwieldy, but it’s not and the Oxford 11 point typeset is excellent for reading and make the words on the thick India paper pleasing to the eyes. The Binding with the Meriva Calfskin is SO soft, so supple, so well-made. The Navy Blue is an excellent choice and the color reminds me of the Bible my dad used to carry, the color is fantastic. This Allan KJV Bible is everything and more and will exceed your expectations. The Meriva calfskin Binding is just luxurious. This will see me through my life and many generations.

    This bible is reminiscent of the timeless classic of the highland goatskin Sovereign.

    The meriva calfskin is a much cheaper option that carries the same price tag. They are not selling too well and it’s no wonder. The calfskin is not as durable as the highland goatskin or even the natural goatskin. The type set is nice but you won’t get that wow factor that you would otherwise get with their old classics.

    Stunning. Completely understated and brilliant. I just received this bible from my wife as a Birthday present. Coming from a Schuyler Canterbury I just cant get over how remarkable this bible is. I have posted an unboxing video for anyone interested in watching. It may help you to decide whether or not to purchase it. If you can afford just pull the trigger.

    Sorry…this is an update to my previous review. The original linked video had to be taken down. Here is the new link
    Again, I hope this helps you decide.

    I have recently bought a Purple Meriva Calfskin 62 Allan Longprimer Sovereign for Christmas this year. At first I was unsure of the color combination with the blue under silver art gilding. However seeing this bible in person those colors blend together perfectly. I was going to buy another one as a back up bible. However I believe I bought the last one. I do hope & pray this bible along with many others will soon provide us with more purple bibles.

    I love this paper it holds pen well including a dark color like purple. I highly recommend this bible
