Why would you choose the DR, instead of one of the modern versions? There's nothing really wrong with the RSVCE2, RSVCE or NABRE (except the execrable notes that the American Bishops will not permit it to be published without). But there's just something about the Douay-Rheims. It breathes tradition, and it is illuminated by St. Jerome's great Latin translation. (In fact, it's a translation of Jerome's Latin, not the original languages, but I have confidence in St. Jerome.)
Is it a legitimate choice for serious study? Of course it is. And why run the risk that some Protestant translation is playing fast and loose with something about justification, or a modernist Catholic edition note is going to explain why St. Matthew was just making up stuff. It is a good choice for reading scripture the traditional Catholic way: literally, analogically, morally and anagogically.) Every chapter has a short introduction, and there are headers at the top of every page, and notes at the foot, as well as cross-references. The notes are unashamedly Catholic. There are very limited maps, chronologies and tables in the back which probably won't see much use. There are also numerous illustrations. Everything is in black and white.
Physically, the page signatures are glued, but it looks and feels sturdy enough. It is hardcover, not floppy leather. The front cover has the obverse imprint of the famous St. Benedict jubilee medal, and the back cover has the reverse. It is quite dignified, as befitting God's word. The book is handy: lightweight, and not too big. The dark text is easy to read. It is a pleasure to curl up on the couch with and read. It has a single ribbon oddly offset in the middle of the Old Testament, instead evenly between the covers.
This is a reasonably priced Douay-Rheims which is easy to read and a joy to possess.
