Review

'I have recently begun to collect quality, leatherbound Bibles of my favourite translations. This one is now my favourite of them all! The workmanship is uncomparable; calfskin leather, gilted edges, 2 ribbon markers, excellent paper and print quality. It includes a presentation page, concordance, cross reference, maps and Bible dictionary. Best of all, it is the lovely Elizabethan language of the KJV, and includes the Apocryphal/Deuterocanonical Books. This is the only leatherbound version I know of like this. Cambridge makes gorgeous Bibles that will last generations. Despite other reviews that their copies had problems, mine is flawless! Wonderful to have such a lovely masterpiece at my fingertips!' www.amazon.co.uk

An outstanding presentation of the complete King James Version, with the Apocryphal/Deuterocanonical books, the only one I'm aware of in leather. The printing/binding is excellent (Cambridge Bibles usually are), as are the concordance and bible dictionary (although references to the apocryphal books are not included in either). Somewhat costly, I recommend purchase if you want the complete, unaltered, original King James Bible - the quality of production promises a Bible that will last for years.

I just recieved my copy today. Although my copy will recieve lots of use, it's a true collector's item--plenty of well-done maps, a very good concordance, a very nice dictionary, and useful center-colum references. Construction is absolutely flawless. The calfskin is wonderfully textured, the paper is quality, and the printing--I read another review that with a notable complaint--my copy is printed dark and sharply. Even the box it came in is nifty and worth keeping.
**I have one, and only one complaint, the words of Jesus are NOT red. Granted, the item was not described as such, but in my mind, it's a given that a Bible at this price would.
I am a 100% satisfied buyer.
(Psst...it's got the Apocrypha!)

This is a wonderfully usable study Bible in classic quality materials. The thin India paper is not commonly found any more, and the printing in my copy was perfect and clear. The beautiful poetic King James English is still the easiest for me to remember, and this Bible has perhaps the best concordances, Bible dictionaries, map collections and chain references of any. It is very useful for Bible studies as well as for personal study because everything is in one convenient package. The King James also helps by putting words added by the translators in italics, which most modern translations do not do. The only thing I wish it had more is a concordance that included the apocryphal books.

Agreed, this is no five-and-dime Bible, but you can't buy a better one for your money. Not only do you get exceptional quality when you purchase this KJV, you also get a durable, compact and handy Bible that will last for years to come. Provided, of course, you don't abuse it...
I would have given it 5 stars, but there were some slight flaws in my Cambridge Reference Bible. For example, the leather on the back cover is thicker than the leather on the front cover, some of the pages weren't trimmed properly, and one page was hideously deformed during the cutting process because it was dog-eared.
Still, all faults aside, I challenge anyone to find a better and more economical Bible for this price. It even rivals the "venerable" Scofield Reference Bible!
Note: For those of you who are KJV fanatics, you'll be thrilled to know that this Bible is very similar to the original edition of 1611. The Apocrypha are bound between the Old and New Testaments.

A very well-bound volume but the print is in need of better ink to paper technology. It is a shame to spend that much money on a Bible and the print be so weak. Still, where else are you going to get this traditional Bible with an enduring cover? The concordance print is almost non-existent on many pages. I still treasure my copy of it,
but Cambridge needs to do something regarding the weak printing on many pages.
