This sumptuous calfskin edition of the Longprimer Sovereign is bound in a bold plum/bright purple Meriva natural grain calfskin, and leather-lined in matching plum Meriva.
NB. Please note the new code – this edition was previously sold as the 62 P / Purple but the Meriva calfskin colour has not changed.
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 a vibrant Plum (bright purple) Meriva calfskin, with a generous semi-yapp and blue under silver page edges, and leather-lined in matching plum Meriva with gilt line inside and three wide ribbon markers, presentation pages and family record, dictionary of proper names, subject index, concordance, 32 pages lined writing paper and 16 pages of Oxford Bible maps.
