I've had mine for about three weeks now and I am very pleased with it. It is large, and as such it's not a carry Bible and it's not a read in bed Bible. It is, however, a really pleasant experience reading this Bible at a desk. I happen to do a lot of my reading at my desk anyhow, so it works out great.

The layout of the text is fantastic, with lots of white space in the text, which makes it very easy reading. The line spacing is very generous as well. The references are just great; not nearly as overwhelming as, say, a 1560 Geneva or any modern reference Bible. I like the sparse references. There are lots of alternate readings provided, which I actually prefer over the cross-references. They really make reading the KJV much easier by clarifying vague or confusing verses.

WIDE MARGINS! Nowhere in the product description does it mention that is a fantastically wide margined Bible. I've never even seen a genuine 1611 KJV, so this kind of came as a surprise to me. But, wow, if your a note taking kind of person there is lots of open space for you to use. Basically something around 1 3/8 on the sides and just under and inch on the top and bottom. Another really nice thing is that the inside margins are big too, which means that NO text gets even close to the gutter. All the text is within a box on a flat sheet of paper no matter where you are in the Bible. Just a great presentation.

The font is not overly large considering the size of the book, but it is plenty big. Probably 9'ish sized font. The overall quality is really nice. I'm not sure that it's a "luxury" edition exactly, but for $50 it is a super fantastic buy. The leather cover, gilding, paper and binding all seem to be of a very high quality. I have zero issues with this Bible.

The chap who said "Never judge a book by its cover" probably never ended up selling a single book. I could easily have walked by this Bible in a shop, which from the outside, looked unremarkable except for its size, and concealed in a dowdy maroon cloth covered slip-cover.

Yet the Anglican Journal uses superlatives like "Physical splendour" to describe this "Quartercentenary Edition, an exact reprint in Roman Type, page for page, line for line and letter for letter of the KJV otherwise known as the Authorized Version published in the year 1611 with an anniversary Essay by Gordon Campbell." "Quartercentenary" triggers off a spell-check alert, and it is a good thing we all understand that this does not mean 25 years.

(Thanks to a comment one year after this review: its QUA-, not quaR-. My spelling error in adding the "R", not the publisher's, so QUAtercentenary unambiguously means 400 years.)

The real burgundy leather over hard board covers has simple but solid gold stamping. It does not grab appeal. It slowly grows on you, very slowly I must add. The burgundy colour is a refreshing departure from the regular black covers. It is not a hip bible and its majesty took me some time to appreciate.

This bible is huge. The statistics of 11.3 x 9.1 x 2.4 inches and 6.3 pounds does not strike you as large until you are actually holding it. Of course, it is small in comparison to the original KJV, which is 17 inches tall, 30 pounds in weight, which may actually require two people to lift into the pulpit.

In a world of vertically longish bibles, it is rare to find one so exquisitely proportioned. The width of the bible being slightly over 0.8 times the height is the ideal W:L ratio. It is the width, which gives this bible a distinct presence.

This is a large and HEAVY bible! Also, it is a 1611 KJV bible which means that it is VERY, VERY, VERY different from the ordinary King James bibles. For anyone who wants all of that, that is, anyone who wants a large, heavy 1611 King James bible will be happy with this edition.

Besides being 8.5 X 11 inches in size, this bible is over two inches thick. It has heavy, quality paper, along with a very sturdy and heavy cover, so it is HEAVY. It is uncomfortable to hold in the lap, and it cannot safely be read while opened with one hand. However, the font is large and clear enough that it can be read in bed with a tilting bed stand. Without such a stand, the only real option is to read the bible while it is laying flat on a table. If that is not acceptable, the buyer should consider smaller, lighter 1611 King James bibles instead of this one.

Like any 1611, this is very different from any KJV or modern bible. The spelling is phonetic, and very different from today's spelling. For example, "been" is spelled "bene" and "do" is spelled as "doe".

Also some letters are actually "switched" while printing. For example, modern "v" is often printed as "u" and modern "u" is often printed as "v". So "unto" is spelled "vnto", "up" as "vp", "have" as "haue", and "love" as "loue". "joy" is spelled "ioy" and "Jesus" is spelled as "Iesus".

Overall the print quality of this bible is excellent. However 3 of the last pages of the Revelation and one page of the appendix following that have a single dark bar across the bottom. This can make one line of the page harder to read. The paper quality is excellent and the print is consistent and easy to read. The edges of the pages are gilt all the way around.
