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.

    This red Longprimer Sovereign 62 will take your breath away ! This is the most gorgeous bible I have ever seen in my life ! I was afraid it would be bright red. It looks weathered red. I paid for expedited shipping and my Bible arrived Next Day by FedEx . After buying the KJV Cambridge Wide Margin, nothing can pull me away from my KJV Cambridge Wide Margin Bible, ever. But, my favorite Bible to hold and stare at is the R L Allan 62 Longprimer Sovereign Bible. I still prefer to read the Cambridge because its very intuitive and friendly to learn the center column reference system on the Cambridge, but I prefer to look at the Allan. Its true. In public, I would prefer the Allan Sovereign because the yapp is visually stunning and very beautiful. If Cambridge put a yapp on their bibles, I would buy barrels of KJV Cambridge bibles. Also, the Red Meriva Calfskin is a subdued Red, and it is ultra, ultra, ultra soft and foldable to the touch. I will certainly buy more R L Allen KJV bibles Longprimers. The 62 Allan Longprimer Sovereign is a show stopper. My only wish is that R L Allan stamped King James Version somewhere, anywhere on the bible. This bible does not say King James Version on the outside cover at all. I live and die by the King James Version. I want to show my support for the King James Version. Overall, 5 stars !! And, thanks to for expedited shipping. I am 100% pleased to do business with evangelical I can’t wait for Christmas to order more Allan bibles.

    What an incredible 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(I say that as one who is used to carrying a larger Bible). Everything about it is perfect. SO soft, so supple, so well-made. I don’t want to put it down, ha! The text is clear and very comfortable to read. I was so glad to find it to be everything I had hoped, and so glad too, to have purchased it during Evangelical Bible’s Father’s Day sale. Honestly…don’t hesitate. This is one glorious Bible! The red is nicely subdued, wow…the calfskin just luxurious. I am so happy. This will see me through my life and be passed on to my beloved grand-daughter. 🙂

    I love this Bible! The font is so easy to read and the margins leave enough room to make notes without it appearing cluttered. This is my second Allan Bible (I have the NASB in highland goatskin) and it is a fine example of craftsmanship. Im looking forward to many years of use from this Bible.
