Now in Stock: Allan KJV 43 Longprimer Thinline Black Highland Goatskin Bible

Allan’s latest version of the Longprimer, the 43 Longprimer thinline, is now available for purchase from Evangelical Bible and Bibles-Direct. Images are from Bibles-Direct.

 

This Longprimer 43 has the same setting as the other Longpirmer’s, but it has 28gsm paper to make it much easier to carry and handle. Here’s more information about the Longprimer from Evangelical Bible’s website:

New Thinline Longprimer 43 edition. Further colour options available soon.

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.

Based on a vintage copy of the classic Longprimer, printed in the period 1952-1958 under Charles Batey, then Printer to the University of Oxford, this Bible returns 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.

This new Longprimer Thinline 43 edition is bound in Black Highland goatskin with generous semi-yapp and red under gold page edges, leather-lined in dark blue with double gilt lines inside, three ribbon markers, with presentation pages and family record in our improved design, dictionary of proper names, subject index, concordance, 32 pages of lined writing paper and 16 pages of Oxford Bible maps.

Printed on best quality, lightweight yet highly opaque 28 gsm India Paper * Large, crisp black letter type * 100,000 centre column chain references with dates above * Three navy ribbon markers * Red under gold page edges * 16 pages of full colour Oxford Bible maps * Concordance, subject index and dictionary of proper names * Exclusively available in Allan’s fine leather bindings.

Page size: 8 3/4 x 6 inches (221 x 150mm)

Spine width: 1 1/4 inch thick (32mm)

Type size: 10/11pt large, clear print
