Very satisfied with this beautiful Bible that I just received today. My only complaint is that I wish it had wider margins for notes, --we Catholics never get that right!
For $22.14 you get:
1) A leather-bound Bible which lays nice and flat for easy reading.
2) Sewn Binding.
3) Two red quality ribbons that are NOT too short.
4) Light/Somewhat cream-colored & Gold-edged pages with minimal page bleed.
5) A very nice double-columned format with chapter titles.
6) Nine maps which include:
1. The Nations of Genesis Chapter 10
2. The Exodus from Egypt
3. The Conquest of Canaan
4. The Kingdom Years
5. Jerusalem - From David to Christ
6. Palestine in Christ's Time
7. Paul's First and Second Journeys
8. Paul's Third and Fourth Journeys
9. The Holy Land in Modern Times.
7) Printed in the U.S.A.
8) NOTE WELL: This Bible has scriptural cross-references, the RSV-CE that I purchased from TAN Books does not. Also, some editions of the RSV-CE have the scriptural notes at the back of the Bible, in contrast they are herein at the bottom of each page where they are referencing a verse.
9) 9 point font.
10) Non-feminist English.
Here are two verses contained in this Bible that may be of interest to you:
Is 7:14: Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Lk 1:26: And he came to her and said "Hail full of grace, the Lord is with you!"
At this price and quality get one one while you can! With the beautiful gold icons on the cover they make a great gift.
Bound in a soft, supple, Cordovan (burgundy-brown coloured) "bonded leather".
Pages are easy-on-the-eyes cream-coloured, and of a slightly heavier weight than the usual very thin Bible "India" paper.
Excellent for Lectio Divina, this is clearly more of a "reading" Bible, rather than one used for traditional study purposes due to sparse footnotes and very limited page margins (please see my photos).
Several full colour maps are included, as well as an informative multi-page Introduction.
This Bible is printed in the United States of America.
I own multiple Catholic Study Bibles, but needed one simply for reading/Lectio Divina.
Between the clear, readable font (approx. 9pt. serif), and portability (size and weight), this minimalist Bible suits my purposes perfectly.
I can easily recommend this lovely, yet practical soft-bound, leather edition of the Ignatius Revised Standard Version-Catholic Edition Bible.
Thank you for reading,

The only caveat I'd suggest is that this isn't the most portable edition you'll own. It's quite big and thick. It's probably not the kind of Bible you'll take with you to Mass or drop into your backpack. Think of it as your nicest home Bible.
I was surprised that this was a rigid hard back and not a more flexible cover like my Daily Roman Missal. A softcover leather doesn't seem to be available but that might make it slightly more portable and easier to flip through.
