Cambridge University Press The publishing house of the University of Cambridge is the oldest Bible publisher in the world. At Cambridge, we have been committed to high standards of Bible printing and binding since we produced our first Bible in 1591. In an age of mass production and quick turnover, we believe that readers still want and appreciate the fine quality Bibles that we are able to offer. We hope that you will find our catalog helpful in understanding the choices available.

For contact details and territories of Cambridge sales and marketing representatives, see inside back cover

Each Cambridge Bible has been made with skill and care from the best and most appropriate materials. If treated with reasonable care and respect as befits a well-made and valuable article, it will give years of use. The cover material used to bind fine Bibles is of course a natural product, and many of the binding processes are still handcrafted, so each real leather Bible is unique. However, if there is reason to believe that a Bible suffers from defects in materials or workmanship and that its current condition is not consistent with normal wear and tear nor the consequence of misuse or damage after purchase, the customer should return it to the source from which it was purchased. If the problem remains unresolved the customer should contact Cambridge University Press, which reserves the right to inspect the book to determine whether it has a manufacturing flaw before considering offering a replacement.

This edition of the New International Version is produced in the highly praised Clarion format. Cambridge Clarion Bibles give a superb reading experience. 30:18 u Dt 8:19 The Bible text is not separated into columns, but flows right across the page, with the references in the outer margins. Clarion Bibles employ a modern digital font, Lexicon No 1, 30:19 v Dt 4:26 with plenty of space between the lines, delivering text with the w ver 1 readability usually associated with much larger type. 30:20 x Dt 6:5;

10:20 yhave Ps 27:1; The Bibles all incorporate a set of maps and a concordance, and Jn 11:25 a presentation page at the front.

They use the highest quality materials: they are printed on India paper, and fully sewn, making them not only beautifully flexible, but also more resilient. All have ribbon markers, head and tailbands, and gold blocking.

The Offer of Life or Death 11 now what i am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach.r 12 it is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?”s 13 nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” 14 no, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it. 15 see, i set before you today life and prosperity, death and de­ struction.t 16 For i command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. 17 But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, 18 i declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed.u You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess. 19 This day i call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you v that i have set before you life and death, blessings and curses.w now choose life, so that you and your children may live 20 and that you may love x the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life, y and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, isaac and Jacob.

In my opinion the NIV edition of the Cambridge Clarion is the best NIV available. If you just want something rugged than I recommend the calf split edition. If you want elegance then the goatskin is your best choice. Both are great choices. I highly recommend the NIV Clarion to any fan of the NIV.

The culmination of a series of revisions, more than 70% of its wording is directly dependent on the work of William Tyndale. Its rhythmic cadences and memorable phrasings have shaped the English language for four centuries.

Cambridge’s first Pitt Minion Bibles were published in the 1930s. They pioneered a typeface designed by Stanley Morison, typographical consultant to Cambridge University Press and to The Times newspaper. He well understood the need for Bibles to be printed in type that was legible, yet not so large as to make the finished book unwieldy. Getting this balance right is just as important today: our modern Pitt Minion Bibles take their inspiration from the original edition and are greatly admired around the world for being compact and portable, yet still easy to read.They use a digital font that is compact enough for large texts such as dictionaries and encyclopaedias, but which also exhibits the elegance of traditional Bible typefaces. The result is a classic form of the Bible for the twenty-first century.

This edition offers a collection of study aids usually only found in larger Bibles. Produced to approximately the same size as an old Cambridge favourite, the Cameo Edition, this is actually the highly respected Concord Reference Bible reduced in size; smaller and lighter – yet just as useful a companion. This edition features red-letter text for the words of Christ. The text is compact yet clear, and the Bible has the same layout and pagination as others in the Concord ‘family’ – thorough cross-references, pronunciation marks, a glossary, concordance, dictionary and maps. ➤ available with a thumb index to help find the place

Red-letter Bibles Bibles in which the words of Christ are printed in red, a practice introduced in 1899 by the American publisher Dr Louis Klopsch. In Cambridge KJV Bibles, the direct speech of Christ whilst on earth is printed in red (see the text sample on this page). Other publishers include indirect speech, e.g. the words at the beginning of Revelation.

The Cameo Edition is a classic Cambridge typesetting of the King James Version, originally produced in the 1920s for letterpress printing. The beauty of the Cameo is its solution to the age-old dilemma of providing readable type in a book of manageable size. The Bibles shown here come in a range of binding styles, but the same familiar layout, and original Petit Medieval Clarendon type. The range includes a superb edge-lined goatskin binding with art-gilt edges. One option includes the Apocrypha which, although printed with the Old and New Testaments in 1611 and included in almost every King James Version Bible for 200 years, is seldom found in modern editions. ➤ goatskin Bible is edge-lined for extra suppleness

The Apocrypha (or ‘Deuterocanonical Books’) The Apocrypha (meaning ‘hidden things’) are ancient writings from the 400-year period between the Old and New Testaments. These books were not accepted as part of the Bible when the Hebrew canon was set, but are read by Jews and Christians for edification and enlightenment. The exact list of the writings accepted as authoritative varies across Church traditions. The Roman Catholic Church accepts all but three of these extra writings but refers to them as  ‘deuterocanonical’ (of ‘secondary authority’). Eastern Orthodox Churches accept all 14 plus a further three.

Ekron. And the children of Israel returned from chasing after the Philistines, and they spoiled their tents. 54And David took the head of the Philistine, and brought it to Jerusalem; but he put his armour in his tent. 55 And when Saul saw David go forth against the Philistine, he said unto Abner, the captain of the host, ‘Abner, whose son is this youth?’ And Abner said, ‘As thy soul liveth, O king, I cannot tell’. 56And the king said, ‘Inquire thou whose son the stripling is’. 57And as David returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, Abner took him, and brought him before Saul with the head of the Philistine in his hand. 58And Saul said to him, ‘Whose son art thou, thou young man?’ And David answered, ‘I Actual size am the son of thy servant Jesse the Beth-lehemite’.

Revised Version The Revised Version was produced in the nineteenth century by British and American scholars, benefiting from the discovery of some early and important manuscripts which threw new light on many aspects of biblical scholarship. It was the first real revision of the KJV and, later, the basis for the American Standard Version of 1901.

Two Bibles in one, combining the RV and KJV texts. This setting of the Bible was first published in 1906, more than a decade after the completion of the Revised Version which was at that time expected to supersede the KJV as the standard Bible text. This edition employs an interlinear arrangement that manifests where the two texts diverge. The words common to both versions are printed in regular type; where there is a disparity, there are two lines of smaller type, the RV above and the KJV below. At the foot of the page are the marginal notes of both versions. The cross-references are those of the Revised Version. Appendices show the variant readings preferred by the American revisers, first published in 1898 and incorporated into the American Standard Version of 1901. The Bible is handsomely produced, with a section of lined paper for notes, a reading guide and maps. ➤ exhaustive cross-references as published in 1898

New King James Version® The New King James Version modernizes the KJV while preserving the latter’s dignified style and word order. The New Testament follows the same Greek text as the KJV. The revisers’ aim has been ‘to preserve the original intended purity of the KJV in its communication of God’s Word to man’.

Cambridge Clarion Bibles are ingeniously designed to deliver a rare combination of readability and portability. They achieve this by using a modern digital font that, like the traditional Bible typefaces of the past, is clear and easy to read even when set in a modest type size (just under 9 point). The generous line spacing also contributes to the legibility. Clarion Bibles have two special features: the Bible text is not divided into columns, but runs right across the page, with the cross-references in the outer margin of the page. They are set in paragraph format, rather than starting every verse on a new line. Both of these typesetting devices make the text very readable and natural. These Bibles incorporate 15 colour maps and a concordance. They are bound in a choice of superior materials: calf split leather, top-grain calfskin and edge-lined goatskin. ➤ single-column setting – reads just like an ordinary book ➤ side-column references – leaving the text clear

Like trying to hold water in my hands ... that’s what my first experience with the Cambridge Wide-Margin Reference Bible was like. I expected the goatskin cover to be flexible, but this was ridiculous. Ridiculously good, that is. Wherever it wasn’t supported by my hand, this Bible gracefully plunged toward the floor, almost like it was wet. I half expected it to be dripping, but of course it wasn’t. That’s the illusion a fine, flexible binding can give.

Cambridge Clarion Bibles are designed to reconcile the conflicting demands of readability and portability. The Bibles are compact and easy to carry, yet the text inside is clear and easy to read, thanks to the use of a font that delivers excellent legibility, even in modest type sizes. Clarion Bibles use two special design devices that make the Bible text very readable and natural: instead of being divided into columns, the text runs right across the page, with the cross-references in the outer margin. Their other characteristic is that they use paragraph format, rather than starting every verse on a new line. These Bibles incorporate a concordance and 15 maps. There is a choice of superior cover materials: calf split leather, top-grain calfskin and edge-lined goatskin.

And Solomon and the assembly j sought it 1 out. 6 And Solomon went up there to the bronze altar before the Lord, which was at the tent of meeting, k and offered a thousand burnt offerings on it.

Translating directly from the Hebrew and Greek scriptures, he produced a text of enduring quality that became the foundation of successive Bible translations in English from the 16th century to the present day. This edition presents Tyndale’s 1534 revision of the New Testament showing the variants from his original 1525 edition. An introduction by Isaac Foot describes both the huge religious and cultural impact of this text and the importance of the revisions Tyndale made to his own works.

The Authorised Version of the English Bible 1611 Page size: H 9 W 51⁄2 inches § H 216 W 140 mm Typography: 11 | 11 point Garamond

The original text of the 1611 KJV is rarely seen, as most editions are based on revisions of the text by printers and editors. In 1909, Cambridge scholar William Aldis Wright represented the original text of the first edition, showing its variations from the second edition, also printed in 1611. The text is presented in a single column, with the notes and references in the margin. The original running heads and chapter summaries are reproduced. This edition includes a list of variations between both 1611 printings – a feature that no conventional facsimile can offer.

Cambridge University Press is the oldest Bible publisher in the world, with a unique heritage and tradition that none can match. The first Cambridge Bible was printed in 1591 – a ‘Geneva Bible’, the Bible of Shakespeare, Bunyan and the first English settlers of America – and we have been publishing the Bible ever since. Four centuries on, we still strive to produce Bibles of the highest quality, in a variety of styles and fine bindings and now in Bible versions both old and new.

Paper

Because of their length, Bibles traditionally have been printed on very thin paper to ensure compact volumes. Nevertheless, paper in a Bible should have sufficient strength to sustain the usage it will receive. The best Bibles are printed on papers that are not only much thinner and finer than ordinary book papers, but are also strong and have good opacity so as to minimise ‘show-through’ of printing on the reverse side. (Paper weighing below 30gsm is usually described as ‘India paper,’ and over 30gsm as ‘Bible paper’).

The quality of any Bible depends primarily on the materials and the processes used in manufacture, as well as the more immediately apparent factors such as text design and layout. The following offers a few guidance pointers for prospective customers looking for a fine Bible.

Sewing and Binding

hold the book block together properly. The glue penetrates a little between the individual sections, but the advantage of a sewn book is that the individual pages are not separately attached only by a single thin line of glue to the cover: each page is part of a folded section (‘signature’) of multiple pages; each signature is sewn to all the others; then all the signatures are glued to form a book block before being casedin to the cover.

There are two methods of casing-in a fine Bible: one (‘pasteoff’) is a semi-automated process of glueing the cover to the endpapers of the book-block, while ‘edge-lined’ is a handcraft process using a cover that is more flexible and that gives a firm attachment of cover to book. The hand-made edge-lined cover is attached to the book block by means of a flap (of an inch or so in width) of the inner cover material being The cover—the final stage that Additional features andthese decoration glued to the endpapers of the book.

so each leather-bound Bible is unique— especially noticeable when natural grain goatskin or calfskin leather is used.

Many Cambridge Bibles and Prayer Books are decorated with metallic (usually gold- or silvercoloured) foil on their covers and on the edges of their paper. The edges are trimmed and sanded, and the corners are evenly rounded, so that when the book is closed these page edges should show as a solid and smooth metallic surface. The material used in this process gives a rich, bright, and attractive finish to the book. Some Bibles have ‘art-gilt’ edges, when a red dye and gilt foil combine to add richness and lustre to the book.

Headbands appear at the top of the spine and tailbands at the bottom. Formerly, they were sewn onto the book block and protected the spine from damage when the Bible was taken from densely stocked shelves. Nowadays, they are added as a decorative item to all fine-bound Cambridge Bibles, as well as to many hardcovers, and the colors are chosen to complement the shade of material and gilding used in the binding.

Ribbon markers allow readers to keep a place in the text while looking up cross-references, perhaps, or to mark a particular passage to which they will return. At Cambridge, care is taken in choosing ribbon markers. Strong ribbons of appropriate breadth for the size of each Bible are selected, so that they will not curl up, become thready or stringy, or, in extreme cases, cut through the thin Bible pages. A generous length is specified, too, so that the ribbons do not get lost within the pages. If the Bible is one of the larger volumes or perhaps one of the top-ofthe-range goatskin bindings it may have two ribbons, and the Lectern Bibles all have three ribbons, to allow marking of different readings.

Cover materials Nowadays Cambridge Bibles may be bound in hardback or faux leather (bonded or imitation), or in various grades of real leather. The finest Bibles are bound in goatskin, a material used in traditional bookbinding for over four thousand years.
