About Us

RL AllanRobert L. Allan first opened his Bible offices at 75 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, Scotland,  in 1863. The Allan shop remained in Sauchiehall Street for almost a century until 1959.

Today Allan's is still a family-owned publishing business where we specialize in producing the highest quality leather Bibles, and selling them direct to the reader. The business has recently passed on to the next generation and the office has moved to London, although it remains registered in Scotland.

R L Allan hold the Queen's Royal Licence under Letters Patent to publish the Authorized King James Version Bible in Scotland.  Queen Elizabeth still holds the copyright to the KJV Bible in the UK.

Our exclusive Allan Bibles are printed on lightweight India paper and handmade by craftsmen in limited numbers using traditional methods and top quality leathers.

An Allan Bible is a beautiful and durable investment.
