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

Red-letter text
28 gsm Indopaque paper

    Thanks for the great customer service. Always helpful. The bible is nice. I think Cambridge needs to be more competitive in the marketplace today. Some advice: three ribbon markers, start every book on a new page, kjv requires a dictionary, keep the dedication pages small (nobody really wants births, deaths, and the rest). Glad you used perimeter stitching and using raised hubs. Bible owners have more choices now and we expect the very best for all the money you’re asking for. Ribbon markers should have no glue sticking around, the text print should be uniform and not washed out in places, and ultimately you need to check ever high priced bible you sell. You’re asking for hundreds of dollars after all and making a profit. Thanks again.

    This Bible is Amazing! The cover is very flexible and soft. The Bible is the perfect mix between being floppy but at the same time can be held and read with one hand. The text is very bold and the blue under gold art gilt really helps the text stand out. I like that this has a leather liner instead of the cheaper vinyl liners in other Cambridge Bibles. The paper seems a little thin for a Bible of this quality but from what I’ve read it is a higher quality paper then others of the same thickness. Also would have been nice with 3 ribbons instead of 2. Overall this Bible is a joy to read and is a work of art. I believe this Bible is one of the best of both worlds for study or for reading that has ever been made.

    A truly beautiful Bible that is so easy to use. The goatskin is exquisite, the typeface bold, clear and perfectly sized. The page is uncluttered – it’s a joy to read.

    My one issue is the gilt edging. The inside back cover is lightly powdered with gilt, and I can see flecks on the outside cover too. It also appears to have been applied inconsistently. In places it’s streaked. Not saying this is a reason not to buy, as there’s not a huge amount, but it’s noticeable and disconcerting given the price. My Allan ESV hasn’t done this in the 9 years I’ve had it. I’ve not had this Bible for even a year.

    It is beautiful and a keeper, but the gilt flaking is a tad disappointing.

    Although I’ve owned many bibles over the years, I have a preference for the KJV Turquoise as it is set up with the traditional center column references which I’ve grown accustomed to. Add in the Antique Bold No. 3 font and the Red Letter and this is becoming my favorite version. The text is bold and crisp and I haven’t found any errors. I had this one personalized with my name in gold (just as it’s listed in the review). Thanks to Melissa and the staff at!

    A beautiful bible, in terms of text and general design. However, a severely off centered spine stamping, exposed glue near the ribbon markers and a couple of crinkled pages, make the $205.00 price tag unreasonable. I couldn’t imagine having paid the original price for this.

    WOW!! This Bible is the best Premium Bible I have ever owned. I have had a few so this statement does not come uneducated. This is by no means a knock on Allan, Schuyler or any of the other Premium Bibles. There all quality. But this is the Cadillac of them all. I bought the Blue and am glad it is not anywhere as bright as in the picture above. It’s a much darker Blue. Very nice color. The type is so so clear and crisp. It’s a 10 font and bold. So it reads more like a 10.5. In all honesty, Cambridge got it right with the spacing of words and line upon line. Lots of room between both so the words are not crammed together. They have room to breath and it’s a joy on my older eyes. With that said it really reads more like a 11.5 font. The red in the words of Christ are the best red I have ever seen. No ghosting. The Bible itself is not to heavy. And the cover although it’s Goat skin is not to limp. Personally I don’t like a Bible that has a cover that’s to limp. It’s like trying to hold water in your hand. This has nice flexibility and can be held in your hand. What a joy!! 6 stars all around. This is an investment, but if your looking for that lifetime Bible this is the one…No matter what color you choose. It’s worth every penny. You won’t be sorry.

    The Cambridge Turquoise in the blue goatskin is my first premium bible purchase. I like this bible very much, but the black print seems faded in certain books and the red letter is the same way. Make sure you look through each page before it’s too late to return so you don’t end up like me.

  8. Josh Shupe

    Just. Wow. This bible is amazing! I already had the black one, and decided to get the blue one as well, and I’m so glad I did! Nice, large, crisp font. Great text block, and the leather!! Thank you, evangelical bible!!!

    Very disappointed in the uneven quality of the print in this price range. Acts and Romans in particular are washed out and faded while much of the Old Testament is nice and bold. The red letter ink is noticeably uneven as well. Nice binding and cover, but so frustrating to have the varying degrees of print quality throughout. For this price?

    The Cambridge Turquoise in blue goatskin is one stunning bible–and now, it’s mine! I had been searching for a beautifully crafted, premium bible to see me into my later years and, I must tell you, this is THE one. From the aesthetically pleasing cover, a strong yet pliable goatskin in a lovely shade of blue, to the crisp, bold “turquoise-style” type-setting (Antique Old Style No. 3, to be precise)–this bible will see me through. The gold art gilt, revealing blue under gold when the bible is open, is so elegant. It is an absolute joy to read and flip through. An easy-to-read concordance, even with my aging eyes, and the maps (15) and map index section is on sturdy card stock and are pleasantly vivid…nicely done. I have decided that I will not be marking this one up–the Turquoise is strictly a reader for me. I was debating whether to purchase the same bible in brown (a beautiful brown, by the way), but I ultimately chose the blue as I did not own a blue bible. I am also pleased with the smyth-sewn binding and overall quality of Cambridge; therefore, I know this will last for years and years to come. Thank you for your offerings and excellent customer service.
