Cambridge Heritage Edition Review

The Prayer Book and Bible Heritage Edition is an edition from Cambridge to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Book of Common Prayer and the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible. I’m reviewing the black calfskin edition, ISBN: 9781107032699,  It was printed and bound in Italy by LEGO. This Bible was purchased for review.  _________________________________________________________ This book is available at (includes some affiliate links) Amazon and many local Bible bookstores _________________________________________________________ COVER AND BINDING The cover is black calf-split with paste-down liner.

A Bible that I’ve been looking forward to from Cambridge is the KJV Turquoise Reference Edition. The Turquoise was originally published in the 1920’s and has been a popular reference edition among those who prefer large print. It’s a verse-by-verse double column setting with center column references. The Turquoise is a great choice for preachers or anyone preferring a large print KJV. The new edition will have the words of Christ while on earth in red letter. It includes a sewn binding with either goatskin or calf-split leather, India paper (I suspect it will be the same paper as the current...
