Cambridge Bibles KJV/RV Interlinear Bible--calfskin leather, black

Out of print for a while, the Interlinear Bible is being reissued in response to continuing interest, this time in calfskin leather. It combines the King James Version of 1611 with its first authorized successor, the Revised Version of 1885. Where the two texts are identical, only one line of type appears. Where the texts diverge, the RV is given as an upper line of smaller type, and the KJV as the lower line. This shows the reader immediately whether there is a variation, yet it is possible to read either version with ease.

I own approximately thirty-five bibles, and this one is among my favorite of the lot. The KJV/RV Interlinear Bible is a marvelous addition to my library. This bible and the New Oxford Annotated Bible With the Apocrypha (Expanded Edition) are my two most often consulted bibles and the two that I use for scholarly study of the scriptures. Both bibles when opened remain flat due in part to their excellent bindings.
The KJV/RV bible has an extremely soft and flexible calfskin leather, the binding is very well-constructed, and the two translations are easy to read. One of the strengths of the bible is that you do not have to consult the margins for the alternative translations as they are printed horizontally within the text, with the RV printed above and the KJV printed below. An added bonus is that the bible incudes the 1901 ASV variant readings in the notes succeeding the testaments. An excellent purchase and a bible that I will cherish for many years.

This Bible is very well made, for many years of use. The print is 11 point font, and printed on a fantastic quality paper. The print is bold, and gives the look of old style. The calfskin is soft, and has a wonderful feel in your hand. The binding is sewn, for durability. This is another wonderful copy of GODS' WORD that I highly recommend adding to your library.

I've purchased several expensive Bibles from CBD,and,as the old adage goes,you get what you pay for.I must say,though that CBD also offers much less pricey Bibles,and the several I have of various translations came to me in good quality and condition. A person just has to shop and browse their selection of products. All in all,considering my personal history with CBD,this Cambridge Interlinear Calfskin is just one of the Bibles I will recommend to everyone who might like this type of Bible. Great Bible;Great price !!
