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.

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

    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.

    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

    Once again, Evangelical Bible gets it done. Thanks for helping to get this nice Bible produced in blue! 6 Stars!!!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!!

    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.
