American Bible Society Ruby KJV

American Bible Society Ruby KJV 002

This American Bible Society Ruby, published in 1953 in Great Britain (that’s funny, I don’t care who you are), is a real gem (sorry about that. It couldn’t be helped). It’s pocket sized, has a sharp black-letter pronouncing text, amazing paper, maps, art-gilt, a ribbon, and best of all a goatskin (real morocco) cover. I found this on eBay and couldn’t pass it up. Normally I would think this small text would be too small to read, but since I recently got reading glasses (46 year-old eyes) I’ve been enjoying the smaller Bibles. This text is sharp and clean and consistent throughout. This Bible is a joy to hold and read. It’s hard to believe it’s over 6o years old. This is a true oldie but a goodie. If you the chance to get your hands on one I highly recommend it.
