This LIMITED EDITION Longprimer Bible is bound in black highland goatskin with a sumptuous scarlet red leather liner and burgundy endpaper, with silver gilt lines inside and 'ALLAN LIMITED EDITION' blocking on the inside back of the case. It features red under silver page edges, silver embossing on the front and spine, and three ribbon markers in silver and red (2 silver, 1 red), along with our own Allan presentation pages and family record, dictionary of proper names, subject index, concordance, 32 pages of lined writing paper and 16 pages of Oxford Bible maps.

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.

For 2016 we have gone back to a vintage copy of the classic Longprimer, printed in the period 1952-1958 under Charles Batey, then Printer to the University of Oxford, returning to a page image that is much closer to the original intentions of the typesetters. This new-old page image retains the large, clear type of the Longprimer we all know and love, but has a crisper letter form and less of the broken type and 'spread' that mark out much-used letterpress typesettings subsequently transferred to film and, only more recently, to digital scans.

Printed on best quality, highly opaque 36gsm India Paper * Large, crisp black letter type * 100,000 centre column chain references with dates above * Three ribbon markers in silver/red/silver * Red under silver page edges * 16 pages of full colour Oxford Bible maps * Concordance, subject index and dictionary of proper names *
