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. This edition is bound in calfskin and is edge-lined for added suppleness. It also features a full yapp, whereby the covers are extended to further protect the gilded page edges. This feature, together with the raised spine hubs are traditional bookbinding techniques.
