    I have to retract on my last review. I dont know if the weather changes durring shipping effected the bible when I first opened it or whatever it couldve been, but this bible is truly the best bible Ive had! The second of having it when I came home, I opened the bible to find that the hinge did not effect the bible anymore in a negetive way at all anymore. I also didnt mention in the first review about my pages curling. That has stopped as well. The bible is a good size for all uses and is flawlessly bound! The print is extremely readable. If I had one itty bitty complaint, it would be that the pages tend to shine more than my Longprimer 53’s. But all it takes is a little maneuvering to get the sheen out of the way. Great bible! Im still on the fence about whether this bible is better than Allans but either way its worth the purchase.

    This is my first Schuyler Bible, & it did not disappoint me. The Bible is everything it claimed to be & more. The overall craftsmanship, the flexibility, quality leather, readability, & size. I also like the dark brown color I chose. I would have a hard time deciding which my overall favorite would be, but the Canterbury would probably win.

    Another fantastic Schuyler bible.

    I must admit, I have been following the development, waiting for the pre order, and finally tracking the shipment with the enthusiasm of a child waiting for Christmas. At the unwrapping I have not been disappointed.

    The binding of the Bible is superb. Jongbloed of course is synonymous with quality bindings. The hinge is much more relaxed than first generation Westminister bibles. The Bible out of the box will stay open to Genesis 1:1 and like other Jongbloed bibles I expect it to lay completely flat within a few days usage. The red leather liner and red ribbons are a beautiful combination. The art guilding, the gilt lines, and the goatskin cover with raised spine is all perfect.

    The font size and type is a dream come true for a high end KJV. This Bible will be able to fill an area previously held only by the Longprimer. The lack of center references, the single column Psalms along with the drop caps, provide for a beautiful reading experience. The print quality is dark and even throughout the text block. The paper has a slight cream tint, perfect line matching, and no reflective gloss.

    I am quite impressed with the back matter material in terms of layout and font type. The modern font and usage of red lettering makes the concordance very easy to use. The maps are very nice and come with an index. There is also a glossary of KJV archaic words, as well as some lined note paper.

    The front matter has a rather simple but elegant presentation page, the Epistle Dedicatory, and the Translators to the Reader.

    If your are a KJV reader or are buying for one, you will not be disappointed with this Bible.

    I have many high end bibles, including 7 Schuyler’s now, and this is hands down the best one yet. Schuyler hit a grand slam with this one. The cover is the softest goatskin I have. The font and font size is perfect. The darker guilding is beautiful. I love that psalms is single column. The drop caps are a great touch. This bible is a joy to read. I use the grant Horner reading plan and this is the perfect bible to use with that. This will no doubt be my daily reader from now on. My only complaint is I wish it had more notepaper . It has 11 pages. I wish it had 32 like a R.L. Allan. I hope Schuyler corrects this on future runs. Other than that this bible is perfect. I plan to pass it down to my nephew one day.

    I received this Bible a few days ago and have been doing the M’Cheyne 1 year reading plan in it since I received it. I wanted to live with it a bit before I reviewed it. What I like most about it is the print size, the line matching minimizing ghosting, and the overall quality of workmanship and material.

    Mark Bertrand is very partial to ‘limp’ text blocks and he will love this one I’ll wager. Hold it between forefinger and thumb at a corner and it sags. It is more compact in length and width than I expected. Somewhat weighty, but not overly so. Rather thick, but that was how they got that wonderful large print in this convenient package. I could, however, take this Bible to church with no problem.

    I had to get used to the goatskin cover. I love how gnarley the Highland goatskin on the Allen longprimer is. The goatskin on this copy is more akin to that on the Cambridge Clarion reference Bible. Not a bad thing, and the lines I like so much in the Allen are there, but not as pronounced. Perhaps it depends on the individual copy. Bottom line is, I would buy this all over again with pleasure knowing what I know now that I have it in hand.

    The Schuyler Canterbury KJV is a flawless Bible — For years I’ve used the Allan KJV 53 Longprimer, Black Highland Goatskin Bible as my primary bible with total satisfaction regarding its durable construction, perfect design and large font layout. However, as I age out I’ve looked for a comparable bible with larger more readable fonts. The Schuyler Canterbury KJV with 36 GSM Paper, Font: 11 pt. Milo font is much more readable. The bible is a bit bigger, but not too much. I love it…..

    This KJV is the culmination of over 400 years of preservation, integrity, and craftsmanship. It is hands-down the best bible on the market today. I am going to purchase another one in calfskin brown. Thank you Schuyler!

    The bible has its good points but not enough to impress me. I have to be honest. I was very disappointed when I first opened the box. The pages are suppose to be 36 gsm. They feel more like 32 gsm. The Longprimer is way better. Also the hinge problem is still very dominant. I waited a long time for the release of this bible and I have to say that I wish I had not bought it. Sorry but the truth hurts

    I have purchased many bibles from EVB, this is my first review.

    The Canterbury arrived yesterday (12/20/16), and it is beautiful! Black Goatskin.

    The workmanship is flawless. The red lining is that perfect red you have to see to believe, and the three red ribbons are a perfect compliment. The leather can be compared to a very fine pair of leather gloves…soft to the touch, great protection. The layout of the text, the feel of the paper, the lined pages in the back, could it get much better than this? I don’t see how.

    Thank you Schuyler, you can be proud. You got it all right.

    I just received my Canterbury KJV bible. It is fantastic!!!!!! For starters, the goatskin cover is amazing. I feels wonderful to touch. Like butter!! I can’t imagine what it will feel like after I’ve used it for a while.

    This bible is easy to read because of the larger type. I just love this bible more than any other bible I have ever owned, and I have a lot of bibles. I didn’t think any bible could be better than my Cambridge bibles, but this one is better. I even purchased a Bottega Veneta handbag to carry my bible in (small size with removable strap. It fits perfectly in the bag. This bag is far better than the fake plastic bible covers everyone sells, even Bob Seiman! Go to eBay to find a small handbag with a removable strap. You probably won’t find one for less than $200, which is more than I paid for the bible, but it’s worth it.

    If you want the best bible on the market, get the new Schuyler Canterbury. I hope that in the future Schuyler will make the Canterbury in other versions. I don’t like the way the Quentel has verses starting in the middle of a paragraph. I think they should start at the left side, just like all my other bibles.

    Thank you Schuyler for this beautiful bible!!!!!!!!!!!
