The Turquoise Reference Edition of the King James Bible was created in the 1920s and has stood as a superb and well-loved example of classic Cambridge typographic design for over ninety years. The large format allows the text to be presented in a comfortably readable form using a bold, traditional typeface with cross-references. For this edition, the concordance has been freshly typeset, and the Bible includes the Translators’ Preface, their compelling account of the principles underlying the publication of the KJV in 1611.

Features include:

Navy Goatskin with full leather linings
Blue under gold art gilt
Two navy ribbons
Red-letter text
28 gsm Indopaque paper
Translator’s Preface
Pronunciation marks
Italics for inserted words
References and concordance
Family record section and presentation page
Map section
Smyth Sewn

Typography: 10/11 point Antique Old Style No. 3

    Just received my Turquoise in Blue goat. It is a beautiful Bible, and the goatskin is lovely in the hand. There are a few things that were noticeable upon initial inspection: 1) a couple of “brighter” gold lines running along the top, side, and bottom of pages which really stand out; 2) the blue page edges become quite a bit lighter in color from about half-way through the concordance through the rest of the following pages; & 3) corner work on back corners could be better. Overall, it’s a beautiful Bible, but I think improvements could be made.

    Love this Bible! Print is BOLD and clear, red letter is beautiful. Paper is very opaque, which makes the text really stand out. Easy to read. Binding is great, very plyable leather. Classy looking too. This is a 10 out of 10 Bible for me!!

    I received my Blue Cambridge Turquoise bible yesterday. I love the Blue Goatskin, blue under gold art gilt pages and the five raise hubs! The leather is very supple and it lays flat right out of the box.
    In comparing this bible with my older Black Turquoise (Presentation) editions, I do notice some differences.
    1.) The new version is missing the dictionary, which I find very helpful. 2.) The new version does not have an art gilt line around the inside cover, which provides a nice finished look. 3.) The Goatskin leather on the new version is not as thick and does not feel as luxurious in my hand, but the new one has a nicer grain than the older one ( but this may change after using it ). 4.) The paper on the new version seems more opaque than the India paper on the older one. 5.) The gold stamping on the spine is clearer on the older version.

    I do like the Turquoise text better that the Allan Longprimer text, but the Allan Longprimer goatskin covers are superior to the Turquoise. I guess the perfect KJV bible would be a Turquoise text block with an Allan Longprimer cover. 

    Thank you for not only encouraging Cambridge Publishers to bring back a classic, but also one in my favorite color blue! Overall, I am very pleased with the exclusive Blue Cambridge Turquoise Bible.

    Beautiful,Awesome Bible! I have quite a few goatskin bibles from Cambridge and so far this is in the top two. I will probably purchase another one that’s what I do with Bibles when I really like them in case they go out of print.

    The received my Cambridge Turquoise Blue Goatskin bible yesterday. I love the Blue Goatskin cover, the blue under gold art gilt pages, and the supple Goatskin leather that lays flat right out of the box!
    In comparing my new edition to my older Black Goatskin Turquoise (Presentation) one, I did notice a few differences. The new one does not have a dictionary like the old one, which I find very helpful. The new edition does not have an art gilt gold line around the inside cover. While the new model has a nicer Goatskin leather grain that is very soft, it does not feel as thick luxurious in my hand, but this my change with use. The new version Bible paper seems better in that it is more opaque then the India paper on the older one. The blue ribbons on the new edition are much nicer than on the old Presentation ones.
    The Cambridge Turquoise text is superior to the Allan Oxford Longprimer text block; however, the Allan goatskin covers are the best. I guess the perfect KJV bible would have the Turquoise text block with an Allan Longprimer Goatskin cover.
    Thank you for not only encouraging Cambridge Publisher to bring back a classic, but also one in my favor color blue!

    Received this Bible yesterday and love it. What stands out to me is that you don’t see many blue Bible covers with gold lettering; it’s usually silver lettering. This reminds me of my very first Bible when I got saved in the 1970’s. It is a beautiful Bible all around. Easy to read and so so soft to hold. Love the red letter too. You can tell this is from years ago especially by the presentation page- very different. A really nice Bible.

    I received my Cambridge Turquoise, Black Goatskin Bible this week. It has exceeded my expectations in every way possible. The quality of the binding, the opacity of the paper, the flexibility of the Bible, the list goes on & on, but the one item I appreciate the most is the type set used& the bold black print against the white paper. This is the most easiest to read Bible I own, period. It is a joy to read, & with its great flexibility it melts in your hands. I believe the leather lining helps the flexibility a great deal. Cambridge has hit a home run with this bible, as well as Evangelical Bible with their great prices & great service

    I received the Cambridge Turquoise, Blue Goatskin bible last week. This is the best looking bible I own. The text is black against white paper. With the words from the Lord Jesus Christ in red. It has the translators’ preface, references, pronunciation marks, concordance, and maps with an index.

    This is the third purchase I have recenty made. The previous purchases were the RL Allen 62P of which need a color change, and is now nearly perfect, then the Schuyler Q Brown, a beautiful bible out of the box. And now this Cambridge T blue. Of the three I prefer this one for one reason, this is a red letter addition, and a very nice shade of red. The Cambridge T will be the one I carry. I would recommend all three of these bibles, all are beautful and well crafted. Also, they are all KJV, since I am of KJVO persuassion. You will not be disappointed.

    I don’t know where to begin. This is truly an amazing Bible! This is my first purchase of a ‘high end’ Bible and I am not disappointed! First, ‘Evangelical Bible’ gets an A+ for their selection and help. I made a couple of phone calls prior to my purchase and spoke with a friendly, patient person as they answered my questions. Shipping was fast also.

    The Bible is way beyond what I anticipated and exceeds any expectations I had. The goatskin is very soft and supple. The layout of the Bible is very nice. It’s a pleasure just to look at! I took the Bible to the Pulpit today for the first time and was amazed at how easy it was to look down at the page and read the text. The font and the layout makes it a true pleasure to use. This Bible is just the right size for me to tuck my ‘Notes and Outline’ in and go. I am very please with the Bible and am sure it will provide years of joy.

    I know that this is a first run for this resurrected edition, but Cambridge has been making premium bibles for a long, long time and I would expect the highest level of quality and workmanship to be presented. Unfortunately, my copy had several imperfections as a result of poor workmanship or quality control relating to the text block. I will say that the leather lined cover was very well crafted and quite beautiful; no issues with that. Back to the text block: Most noticeable was a large blemish or smear on the blue over gold art gilt treatment of the page edges. There were also 2 areas on the page edge gilding where the signatures appeared to be out of alignment resulting in a very noticeable line that protruded out from the entire perimeter of the page edge gilding. Next, there were 4 or 5 pages with crinkles or creases, and finally the ribbon markers were finished poorly exhibiting jagged and gluey edges. I had to return the bible for a refund and chose not to take a chance on a replacement bible.
