With free limited edition art print, produced from an original painting specially commissioned by R.L. Allan - copies are not available separately.

First printed in 1952, the King James Version Longprimer Bible is a sumptuous, traditional reference setting of the Authorized Version. Developed by Oxford University Press and now published exclusively by R. L. Allan, it has for many years been our flagship Bible, renowned the world over for its clarity of type and our beautiful bindings.

The Longprimer Sovereign edition retains the same clear, bold type as the standard Longprimer but is printed on a 38gsm writable Bible paper with the highest levels of opacity, and increased margins (one inch on outside and bottom edges) to show the text block off to greatest effect and further enhance the reading experience.

This rich green natural grain goatskin LIMITED EDITION - the second 'special' in the Longprimer Sovereign range - has been created to commemorate the 90th Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. It celebrates Windsor Castle, HM The Queen's favourite London palace and the focus of her birthday celebrations last month, including the state visit of the US President.

To further celebrate this landmark moment each copy includes a limited edition art print of Windsor Castle, painted to special commission for R.L. Allan by John Walsom, a well-known artist who is represented by the Burlington Gallery in London's Mayfair. (To see other examples of John's work, visit www.burlington.co.uk/paintings-by-artist/john-walsom.html)
